Get a wrx, don't bother with extra money for sti. Get good suspension and be done. Also with 6 speed in sti you'll be shifting more than wrx.

Kevin aren't sti gears kinda short? Which is why I said my above statement

Thanks! I think I ended up with 7% or 8%. I was told one of the benefits to having the longer warranty was that the bank was then willing to lower the rate.

Also I like the hatch, haha.
72 months. Bumper to bumper warranty for 5 years 60k miles. I'm planning on paying it off before the full six years so like I said I should be covered pretty much the entire time. That and I'll never ever come close to the 60k miles in that time period.

Thanks for the info! My current loan is at 3.9%, so I think I'd get a good rate on a new car... Hmm... Release Sonic RS now?

Simply saying what's benefit of Sti, slightly faster, better suspension, and a extra gear? Oh and a wing. Worse MPG? I would just get wrx if it were me

Mike I'm jealous you put less than 60k on a car in 5 years.

I think i'd be lucky if I went 4 years without breaking 60
