    New to ClubWRX and looking for a New to Me

    Hey guys, I'm Erik, and in the proccess of looking for a buyers guild to WRX's I stumbled across this forum. I've read the "how to buy a used WRX" thread from a couple years back, and the addition a few years after that. Great Info, Exactly what I needed!

    I have a couple of question and want "you guy's" (or where i'm from "y'all's") opinion.

    I'm looking at an 04 red wagon here Used 2004 Subaru Impreza - Champion Austin - 2004 Subaru Impreza. WRX and manual tranny. To me, it has some miles on it, but my 96 maxima just crapped out at 215 thou.

    So is 165 too many? It is from a stealership but I don't have amazing credit and I feel like they can work out a deal with me to make payments.

    One other thing, as opposed to the trunk inspection on the buyer guide, what do I look for specifically in wagons to be cautious about?

    wagons and sedans are nearly identical in mechanics. Just a few differences in dimensions. Stick to that buyer's guide. Make sure you get an independent subaru mechanic to look it over before purchase, and you should be good.

    165k is pretty high, but there are people with over 300k on their WRXs. Just depends on how well it was maintained before you got yours.

    Thanks very much. I'm just going to print it out and take it with me down there this weekend. Being at a dealership and not an individual, should I look in the owners manual for the maintenance records?

    Just ask the salesman if they have any maintenance records. They probably wont. But they might!
