    Looking for another WRX: 02 vs 04

    So, my '02 was totaled a month ago (someone pulled out in front of me) and I am now looking to replace it. I wonder what the real differences are between the 02 and the 04? Is it just the front end?

    cars101.com is a great website to compare different years/models.

    get the newest, lowest mileage, most maintained one you can afford. make sure its stock

    Ok, it looks like I am picking up an '04 wagon. I am just wondering if the 04 has the same radiator issues the 02s had? I had to replace the radiator in both of my 02s.

    I wasn't aware of any radiator problems from any generation.

    I just know I had to replace it in both of my 02s and I thought it was mentioned as a weakness for that year.
