    Buying Used Car in PA or MD

    Im in NY and ive found two wrx's im seriously interested in buying but I want to make sure that whichever one I decide on is in good condition before I buy it. Both still have the warranty however one only has it for about 400 miles more. I need your help, any reputable places near media,PA or baltimore,MD that can take a look at it before I make my choice.

    Here's the info on the cars, feel free to comment if you think one is better...
    asking:17kOBO Silver
    miles:35.6k
    Extras
    premium package(sunroof,heated seats&windshield wipers.)
    Modifications:Borla Hush, Sti replica rear strut(I want the borla hush anyway tho...)
    OTHER CAR
    asking:19.9OBO Black
    miles:27.5k
    Extras
    Short throw shifter, turbo gauge, rear spoiler

    The 2nd seems like its owned by an older guy even though ive never spoken to him but the first has mods that I want to do anyway(but there still mods... which makes you wonder how he drove the car)


    Thanks for your help

    personally, i would coin up the extra just to have one that an old guy drove. i know how i drove when i was younger and i was mean to my car.

    where exactly are these cars located? pa is rather big and md has shops all over.

    Im paranoid too, but im getting anxious and want a wrx now. But i dont want to get ripped off. what do you mean anapolis subaru?
    i know about them, i was looking at a wrx from them but i dont want to pay the high tax from a dealer, at least from a private seller you can have him write a lower price.

    i didn't know if you were being given the opportunity to drop it off at a shop to have it looked at, or not. if so, annapolis subaru may be able to help you with the vehicle inspection. i don't know what it would cost or if this is even a real option. i know when i was looking to get my car, i drove it out to my local mechanic and had him look at it to see if he could find and reason for me not to buy the car.

    I will, so far so good. They are very nice/courteous. The seller is taking a while to schedule the appointment though(he's in college as well) so im starting to doubt the sale, but im hoping it turns out all good. I originally made the app. b/c he said he was open all week 'cept tuesday then i make it and he says its no good, then i change it and its still no good so I had him call and make it to his liking.we shall see...that was 12o'clock and it's now 1130 at night and still no message from him.
