    Help - My first WRX

    Hi all,

    I'm soon to buy my first WRX and was wondering whether anyone could help me out a little. It's a 2001 model 2.0 liter. the car looks and feels like a dream. It seems to have been very well kept. The current owner treats it like his wife and claims he has changed the engine oil almost every 5000 km. He is however the third owner and not the first. The car has 157000 km on the clock and had its last timing belt change 20000 km ago. Although it feels fine mechanically and I cannot find anything myself, I am a bit worried about the mileage. How reliable are these engines and if treated well, should I be worried. How many can I hope to get out of her and what else should I be looking out for.

    I would really appreciate any help on this and any info you could give me.

    hey dan. welcome!

    if google is correct, the car should have about 97,000 miles on it. (most of us here are in the US )

    on average a person puts about 12-15000 miles PER year.

    the norm for a 9 years old vehicle should about roughly 108-135k miles on it.

    with that being said- this car is under the normal range for it's year & i dont think you should really have much to worry as long as it has been maintained like you said it has been.

    also- heres a neat thread for you to check out.
    High Mileage Club

    there are many members here that have over 100k miles and that thread is dedicated to them

    your friendly, neighborhood subaru girl
