id like to say hello to all Subaru enthsiasts, my names Jason, new to the site, and new to the subaru world. will be purchasing a 03 wrx very soon, and im trying to gather as much information as i can about it so ill have an idea what im getting myself into. this specific wrx im trying to get has 88k miles on it, and i believe the dealership that has it is letting it go for about $11k. Are there any reliability or maintenance issues that should be brought to my attention? also, ive been browsing around a bit and the wrx transmission is talked about like its made out of plastic, lol. what is stock hp for the wrx and what can the tranny handle before the drivetrain needs upgrades? im also going to try to get in touch with the previous owner to see how he took care of the car. Any input or help is greatly appreciated. thanks everyone, and nice to meet you all.
