      New. They'd be worth the same when you drive it off the lot. $5k isn't much of a a hit.

            Well we cant make assumptions. If the used was private party vs CPO. Quite a difference there.

              Good points.

              I haven't started negotiating, but both cars are at separate Subaru dealerships.

              For what it is worth, the used price is the best I can find -- there are others available for closer to MSRP.

              The only significant differences are the obvious (age, mileage) and the addition of a rear camera and (much) better infortainment unit in the new model. Also, I may have to wait for a new model to arrive from ' the factory' (ie., inventory shuffle).

              I'm somewhat picky - I want the Limited model in WRB ("subaru blue") with a stick. Even so, the difference between new and used is about $4k.

                  Whatever you do, start saving for a turbo.

                      Noice dilemma. Definitely on my list of wants. I'd rock the new as well.

                          I like the idea of a new car, but that smell gives me such a headache.

                            Isn't '14 the first year for this car? I would skip that and get a new one with a few years production under the belt...

                              Good thought. 2013 is actually the first year for these cars, but 2016 is the first time they've made any significant changes. Even that was just adding a (much) better infotainment system and a rear-view camera. Otherwise, there haven't been many changes / updates / recalls that I'm aware of.

                              I'll dig in a bit, though -- they don't tend to advertise 'bug fixes', to use a software analogy.
