I'm thinking of buying a 2002 WRX sedan, manual with 94,000 miles (152,000 km as I'm in Canada.) No mods. Is there any common problems or other things that I should look for before I agree on a price? He was asking $14,000 and is down at $12,500 because the clutch may or may not be on it's way out.
About how much may it be to replace a head gasket? It isn't leaking yet, but I hear that is also a problem.
Has anyone actually experienced or seen an issue because of the weaker transmission?
