I am currently looking into purchasing my first vehicle. I am looking at a 2002 Subaru WRX with only 71,000 KMS.
Here's the ad:
Looking to sell or trade my Subaru wrx as I am looking to pick up a truck

-hid's 8k headlights and fogs
-Hks ssq bov

He is looking for 10,000$ for the WRX.
I have a ford taurus I'm looking to sell (approximate value 1500-2500$) and he has agreed he would take it and 8500$ cash for the WRX. I'm not sure how good of a deal that really is but I think it would be a good one because of the limited KMS.
Okay so please bare with me and help me understand what most of that meant! I am a huge noobie to cars so anything would help!
I've asked the owner various questions:
Me:Any upgrades done to the car? (If so could you list)
Are you the original owner? (If not, how many owners were prior to you?)
What's the reason for the sale?
And is this the original motor or was it swapped? (If so, how many Kms are on the body?)
Owner: Mods are listed in the add. I'm not sure how many owners before me I think 3. Original motor. I'm looking to buy either a truck or a honda for now and save until I have enough for the truck I want. I could work with you abit on the price as well.
Meid you purchase it bone stock from the previous owner or what?
Owner: It had a few things already on it, I did more maintenance then up grades
Me: The car has 72,000 KMS not MILES correct?
Has the car ever been in a collision?
The car is not a conversion right?
Owner:Not a conversion, it's km it has a u.s cluster. Old cluster broke all the previous owner could find was a us one- no accidents
I've gotten various pictures which I will include
I have no idea what he means by a US conversion ?? (I'm from Canada btw)
I am thinking this could be a good deal because I've read the wrx is cheaper than the impreza wrx on insurance
Also because this is my first vehicle I'm not wanting to go all out- just happened to stumble across this car and thought it would be an amazing daily driver for someone like myself
If you can swing some knowledge my way it would be incredibly appreciated
If you have any other questions you think I should ask the owner PLEASE don't hesitate to mention them to me and I can give you all his response
All help would be appreciated!!!
