Hey guys, within the next year I will possibly be looking for a new daily driver. Obviously the new WRX / STi are appealing cars, but I just can't afford that kind of car right now. Anything over $10k is absolutely out of the question, anything between $7500 and $10k is a stretch, and I can definitely afford anything less than $7500.
I want something fun and practical so Subaru would be an obvious choice. My question is to you guys, how dependable are these 12 and 13 year old WRX's? I understand that it's a turbo car so that means there are more things that can go wrong -- more expensive things too. But as long as the previous owners cared for the car, should I be worried about these cars with 100k to 150k miles on them?
Also, what are some common problems? It seems that the O2 sensor seems to go out a lot in these from what I see, but are there any MAJOR problems I will be facing with these cars? I'd really like to own a Subaru but don't want to dig myself into a money pit.
