Looking for WRX

Hey guys new to the forum and new to the WRX. The past couple of months i have been studying craigslist and auto trader looking for the wrx all over the midwest with not much luck!
I recently found this wrx with just over 100,000 miles and a great deal for the quality of the cars condition with a clean car fax, but the downside of an automatic
Cars for Sale: 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan in Topeka, KS 66608: Sedan Details - 355218396 - AutoTrader.com

Just curious what your thoughts would be especially considering the automatic performance
Thanks!!

I wouldn't buy an EJ205 with an auto. The old 2.0L had no low end torque and the auto takes forever to get past 3500 RPM. 3500RPM is no biggie in a 5-speed manual. In a 4-speed auto it's life-sucking. The EJ255 was available with the auto in 06-08 and in 09 in the "GT" (not the WRX).

The new FB 2.0L and the CVT is pretty cool, but no out till 2015 and probably out of your pricerange.

okay thanks for the response! from what i have been reading it looks like this is the case with the automatic! In all honesty i really want a manual but man its hard just having no luck finding these cars anywhere! i guess it goes to show the reliability of these Subarus!
Thanks
