    About to buy a 2002 WRX!!!

    Im thinking of buying a 2002 wrx but the guy says that the steering wheel shakes at high speed when breaking. He says it has something to do with the front rotors being warped and something about the tie rod end for the steering wheel connects to the hub that the break caliper bolts to. So i just wanted to know, is this a big issue and what should i look for if i go check out the car? Thanks guys, and sorry im a newbie so i dont know a lot about wrx that much but any more info is welcome

    Easy fix or no? And the guy wants 7250 for it, clean title with only 120000 miles

    Check NADA forthe value of the car.

    In theory, yes easy fix. But I will forewarn you it very well may not be an easy fix AT ALL.

    There could be a lot of things that cause that to happen. Have it checked out by an independent mechanic before you buy or you could end up in a money pit.

    ^This. You want a car that hasn't been modified, preferably with receipts for maintenance.
