    a few questions about wrx's with 90k+ miles

    Hello. i've been checking in and out of this site for a few months because i'm at a big car decision. I'm most likely looking to purchase a 04-05 wrx with probably 90K+ miles on there. I was just wondering what kind of maintenance costs i will most likely run into the near future because I'm trying to figure out how much more i'd have to spend to help lengthen the life of the car as far as possible. biggest concern is timing belt, water pump, clutch, turbo, and tranny. thanks

    tbelt and w/p are a necessity.. I think less than 200 if you do it yourself..

    the clutch, turbo, transmission lifespan is all relative to the maintenance and how it was treated.. Kinda hard to say "how long" they'll last..
