Been viewing the forums for a while but now that I am finally a Subaru owner I feel happy to be a part of the community
Picked up this 2002 WRX yesterday for $4500. It has 182k miles and is bone stock...bought from a older guy who was the original owner since 02, and I have reason to believe him when he says the car was never abused/launched/raced. The interior is a 9/10 and exterior maybe a 7/10 with some scratches and dents but nothing too bad.
Now I had read up on the reliability of these and have heard of a well taken care of WRX lasting well beyond 200k..Have also read about the transmission problems and am being wary of that.
The turbo is the original and has held up for this long, so I will see about replacing it. Probably before 200k, I will swap the engine.
Other than that, I was hoping to hear from some more experinced WRX owners of how to take care of this beast and what to look out for on a high mileage WRX.
