I've been looking around for a nice condition WRX for a while now and havent had the best luck. I'm in Mass and am going to check one out in Providence on Monday. What does everyone on here think about my situation?
It's a silver 05 WRX sedan with close to 89k miles on it. Everything is stock still, it's got a new radio (touch screen), ipod hookup and satellite radio. Again, everything is stock, things that have been replaced include the sway bar and the brake rotors and pads. He said he has done all scheduled maitenance and I'm hoping to see record of it on Monday. Also, he claims that the car has highway miles from commuting to work daily.
About him: He's married, he works about 30 min from his house. He's selling the car to buy a truck (he would like to keep WRX, however he needs the truck because he maintains 3 homes).
I'm planning on meeting him on Monday at a shop that a friend has reccomended to me. Anything you would reccomend me having the mechanic check that might be looked past otherwise? What upcomming expenses would you predict to see on an 88k mile WRX?
Oh yea. An o2 sensor went bad and he's planning on replacing it for me. He said he'd knock of 200 bucks from the price. He's set at $10,300 (including the new o2 sensor). Fair price?
Thanks a lot in advance,
