I can not find a '07 WRX in the Minneapolis area for under 23.6 for the life of me. The best I could find for a 'new car' was an '07 demo with 2k on it. I also found a 07 WRX TR for 21.8 w/ 4k miles on it.
Buying a car with even 4k miles on it makes me a little ancy, thats the break in period and if someone didn't take care of it that could cost me a lot down the road. Also, the idea of spending 22k on a car w/ 'no features' is a hard pill to swallow for me.
Guess I'm torn. Maybe I'll go back and start looking at some 04's for 18k?

i live in the northeast, just graduated college and i just purchased my '07 WRX today. Shop around dude thats the best advice i can give you. I got my car for around $19000 and then i tacked on a 6yr/100000 mile warranty so my payments are in the mid $300's but it is a brand new WRX. The invoice on the WRX is around $23000 and subaru has a 3% hold back which is about $1000 or so. Play with the numbers and figure out how much the dealer actually pays for the car.

Just picked up an 05 legacy GT wagon 5MT for $18k with 30k miles. The deals are out there!

What is the hold back? How did you manage to get them down to 19k? I asked for 22.5k on an '07 and they looked at me like I was out of my mind. It was a WRX but not loaded. Did you get a TR?

That deal is unbelievable! I'm looking at a 2007 wrx wagon with an MSRP of $25,927. They said they could sell it for $23,500, which is $200 above invoice minus $1000 rebate. Even with a 3% holdback (which is less than $800), and selling at invoice, you're only down to $22,500.00. How did they agree to eat $3500.00?

That's a rare bird, mike, they only made wagons with manuals that one single year!
