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.
