they are a bit understeery from the factory- but if you like getting sideways like i do, that can be a good thing.

as far as bang-for-the-buck and more-cheap-power potential, the '02/03 is hard to beat in the "used car <5yrs old" market right now.

carmax is a great way to find local and nationwide values on used cars.

(i find this kind of data useful because the car i'm picking up has a lot of aftermarket work done to it already, and i'm paying a price that would only get me a bone-stock example here in the PNW.)

also, they have locations in TX, and for a fee they'll transfer a car from any other dealership to your local one; which is a business model i like, in addition to the no-haggle pricing and the fact that the salespeople aren't on commission. you either like the deal or you don't. my brother bought his toyota tacoma from the dealership in sacramento, and had good things to say about the experience.

wagons go for a bit less than sedans, and tend to be more under-the-radar as far as police attention goes.

either way, if you actually buy one, i'd go for an extended warranty as subarus run out at 60K, and the tranny can be a weak link if the PO abused the car (mine had a grind going into 2nd gear from a worn synchro).
