    2004 Subaru wrx worth the price

    So I need help once again on deciding of this car is worth the money. The owner said he swapped the engine for a 2005 Saab 9-2x. Not to sure if the engine is reliable or if it was a good idea to put into a Subaru. I'm not educated to know the pros and con's of doing so. This will be my daily driver. So I need a reliable car. Also wondering what things I should look into that will need repaired or replaced with it having the mileage it has. The body is in less then good shape. Paint is worn peeling and so on. I am asking for your help on deciding if it is worth the asking price. The link to the ad is below. Any responds would be appreciate.

    The Saab 9-2x used a Subaru WRX motor so it's a direct swap.

    $4200 is a pretty low asking price so it might be worth checking out further.

    Thanks for the links. Should I be worried about the tranny having more miles as the engine has more life than the tranny.

    It's an automatic so I wouldn't be as worried.

    Those 4EAT transmission are pretty stout.

    That good to know. Sorry for all the newbie questions. Never owned a Subaru. What other things should be looked into for reliability.
