    I would have a hard time buying a car with +75-80k miles on any car, Subaru or not. Unless it's something special that is.

    Check the car buying sticky and it will explain what to look for purchasing a used WRX.

    Normally look for something as close to stock as possible. Maintenance records available. I like to keep the general rule of no more than 15K a year. Being that you are looking at at 02, for car 7-8 years old you're looking at approx 105K miles for average every day use. Take that as you want to and run with it.
