New to the world of Scoobs so pardon me for any ignorance... I am in the market for a used WRX. I've driven a stock 2002 before and love the car, I've found a 2003 with 54,000 miles on it for $8,000 which seems like a good deal to me. It has all stock OEM parts on it which is a huge plus but, The thing that worries me is that its had its clutch (at 29k miles), radiator (In 2014, Because of "a leak"), and catalytic converters (jan 2016) all replaced already, doesn't it seem strange this has been done so early in the cars life? The car has only had one owner who I'm going to meet and speak with soon. He claims he has only used the car for commuting to work which is consistent with the mileage and age of the car. He has also provided the VIN and carfax report. The report did denote that an accident was reported, The owner says he was sideswiped and the only replacement was a rear passenger side panel. What I'm wondering is how this deal would sound to current, more knowledgeable Subie owners. Also what exactly to look for when shopping for used WRX's. What parts are common problem areas, Which wear and tear parts seem to go first, How can you tell the car has been driven roughly, What are some red flags for Subaru, How can I tell if the can has been modded then de-modded? etc.
