Picked up an '05 WRX Sportwagon with 33K for a pretty good deal. Drives very civilized under 4000 RPM's, but hit the throttle beyond that and you will have a wide grin on your face all the way up to about 7000 RPM's. Suspension is very tight but forgiving thanks to the 16" wheel/tire combo. I'd imagine '06 and up with 17" wheels is a little more firm due to low pro tires.
My only advice is if you're looking for a WRX, stick with lower mileage ones if possible. I test drove quite a few and some were alot more rough than others with similiar mileage. Owners usually drive these cars hard as that is what they are meant to do. Don't take an owners word for it that its been "babied" because chances are its had more than a few spirited outings. I ended up going to a local Subaru dealer and finding one with a facrtory warranty still remaining because I didn't want to have any "surprises".
Love it! Great car and great price!

High mileage vehicle. Smooth ride. Good gas mileage. Great body style. Lots of room when the seats are laid down. My dog rides back there and loves it
handles well, well built, safe, high ratings on reliability and maintaining value. A little more expensive than other cars but worth it. Only thing I dont like is the road noise inside makes using the blue tooth for phone calls impossible if you are driving on the fwy. can be used only at low speeds. I am so bummed about that.
