I am new to this forum, new to serious car purchasing (my 2 vehicles total about $3500~), and new to WRXs. I am a Vermonter and as such have always been a WRX fan, now I feel I may be in a place to buy one but only the right deal. Having said that, I found this deal on craigslist:
Subaru WRX -2006
I know all you enthusiasts probably hate Auto, but I've never owned a 5spd nor have I driven one since driver's ed 9 years ago.
Anyways I am mostly concerned about the salvaged title and "light front end damage". I did some reading online and sometimes this can mean it actually had serious damage that totaled the car, or it could have had actual light damage but the airbags deployed and the interior was damaged from that to total the car. I am going to go check it out today after work and try to get the story behind that. I will also take it to a garage to get it checked over if I like what I see.
Anyone have any good/bad stories about titled cars or advice? Depending on how things check out I am thinking of offering $11,500-12,500
