There is no way I’d spend $38k on a used sti. Can’t a brand new one be had for damn near the same price?

It's so close to new car pricing why not go new? Is it through a certified used car program so you get full Subaru backed extended warranty? If not I'd look elsewhere. If so, negotiate it down and get as much as you can from your trade in. Otherwise just get a new one since they are almost the same price anyway.

Are you serious?

I got my STI brand new with 11 miles on it for $35,000, would have been $39,000 at that trim level.

So you are considering taking a 2% discount for a 2 year old car when new cars depreciate on average about 30% in the first two years.

2020 STi web price $866 more without negotiation. Do you really think you can't match $38140 and get a brand new one? It's even the same color.

I would never buy a used STi/WRX. There's a 99.9% chance that you are buying someone's problem for the price of a new car.

go to a couple local dealerships and bring the AD. Tell them you're serious, and tell them to beat that price for a brand new one.

Watch the salesman flock to you.

I would also say check the cars for sale section, craigslist...even if its still "new" that old should be way cheaper with all the current year and next model year coming out too...

Buy low and get one modded or buy higher and get piece of mind knowing it's still a virgin and unmodded.
