In trying to be wiser with finances, I'm trying to get rid of a car payment, and get into something in the $9k range so that I can pay cash.
I live in CO (Denver area), and am looking at WRXs in the 2003 - 2006 range.
It looks like I can either get something older, in the 90-110k mileage range, or 2005-2006 in the 150k mileage range. I'm trying to decide if I should shy away from a WRX with 150k miles?
I used to have a TDI and wouldn't worry about that kind of mileage at all, as long as the timing belt was up to date - but I don't know WRXs that well. I commute about 75 miles/day, and while I ride my motorcycle whenever I can, I still end up driving quite a bit. Am I walking into a money pit if I buy a WRX with 150k miles, or is the WRX going to be like other Subies, and run forever with proper maintenance?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
