    Used wrx advice

    Looking to buy a used wrx and this one seems to check out: Used 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX, Limerick, PA | Welsh Subaru of Limerick | VIN: JF1GD29635G518467
    My concern is the reliability of a 9 year old car. I'm not going to beat on it, but looking for a semi-reliable dd for a few years.

    Looks like a clean car and never modify. Engine looks immaculate and the miles is fairly low for car that old. I would give it a test drive and feel the car out. How it starts up, shifts, suspensions, etc. Also ask if you can take the car to a shop you trust for a quick buyer inspection. Its a bit pricey though but other then that an outstanding choice and a good start. Good luck

    if the car was well taken care of & maintained it will last MUCH longer than 9 years/58,000 miles.

    based on the pics the car seems really clean & stock. i'd say go check it out for sure. not too crazy about the price but that can be negotiated.

    Took it for a test drive and it felt great. I'm financing it so I'm not sure how much I can negotiate. Is this an unreasonable price?

    That's a ridiculous price! I got my one owner 2011 for 18k with 60k miles.
    But if they are rare there, go for it!
    It's getting hard to find them stock

    This car will last A LONG time 58,000 miles is really low for a 05. I know people who have got way past 200,000 on their wrxs. If you decide to get the car make sure the up pipe is replaced.
