I am getting a deal below invoice on a 2006 STI but the car has 280 miles on it. It is the color and has the options I want. The car was not a return or demo but was originally driven to dealer as a trade that fell through and back again accounting for the high mileage. The sales manager claimed that the vehicle was driven by a long standing employee yada yada yada..... Should I be hesitant? I am planning on having them put it on a lift for me to inspect. I have heard both sides about a cars break-in. Has anyone elso bought a new STI with similar mileage? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

well,, first thing the dealer trade guy does when he gets on the highway is use the cruise control.. they usually have a retired senior citizen do the dealertrades and they do that a lot. my dealer did a dealertrade for my sti and because of this, i went with the dude and drove my car back with him sitting in the passenger seat. If i were in your shoes, i wouldn't buy it unless they sell it VERY cheap because its got a lot of milage and the 07's are about to come out VERRRRY soon

DONT BUY IT! i had to do a dealer trade as well when i got my sti. i specifically requested to ride along with their "long standing" employee when he went to get my sti. well we drove up in a manual forester and i have to say that employee beat the crap outta the forrester. he was going up to like 5k - 5.5k on shifts and he stalled more than twice. he sucked ass at driving and grinded gears a couple of times too. i was very disgusted by this and was happily relieved when he told me i could drive my sti back from the other dealer. its up to u but i personally wouldnt buy that sti with 280 miles on it. just my .02

34 OTD is a good deal, depending on the taxes. That's the deal I just got. There might have been a little more room there to play, but it wasn't worth it time wise to me for try to bang away for another few hundred dollars...
