I'm looking to buy my first car at 23 years old. I'm pretty set on a 2010 - 2012 low mile WRX and would like to stay below $25,000.
Anyways, I found a 2012 Metallic Gray WRX base model sedan online, about 2 hours away, with 13,000 miles for $24,000. Now, I am pretty much set on buying this car so last night I bought the Carfax for it. The only issues I have are the "Damage Reported", "Engine Removed to complete Repairs", and "Short Block Replaced."
What do you guys thing? Could this a huge warning sign, or nothing to really be concerned about? Why was the engine block replaced? And why can't these dealerships sell this car. It looks like it's been passed around a bit. The vehicle is still under basic warranty.
The used car dealership its at now looks to be reputable. It looks like they specialize in a lot of higher end used luxury and sports cars like Audi's, Masaratti's, BMW's and Porsche's.
I've attached pictures of of the Carfax reports if you guys wouldn't mind taking a look to see if anything screams "don't buy this car"
Thanks in advanced!
