    09 wrx premium $17K advice!?

    I want to make an offer on this 09 wrx I found, but I'm concerned that it has been ragged on. The stock turbo has been replaced and there is 80k miles on the car. Is this a red flag? Other than that, it seems to be well maintained and in good shape. Here's the link, check it out and let me know what you guys think.

    That's not the one my friend.
    WRXs in great shape un modded are hard to come by.
    When I'm looking for a used car, I call a couple dealers around here.
    Usually you can get the dealer to search for you, makes things mutch easier.
    With all the people that ordered and purchased a 15, there will be more and more pre owned older WRXs for sale. Where are you located?

    The clutches are known to go at whatever intervals the clutch feels like so no surprise there..as far as the turbo though...only a few things come to mind that would constitute needing to replace it such as launch control excessively, lacking oil changes. ..maybe debris getting caught. Walk buddy and wait for the next

    I won't even buy a used car so I can't chime in. Living in Michigan with crappy roads, crazy weather and frequently flooded freeways in the cities...too many factors and too much risk.
    With that said, new turbo=red flag. Stay away. Either it was NEEDED because the old one was killed or just wasn't maintained well, or it was heavily modded and you have no idea what's been touched and how it was tuned, etc.
