    Question 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX

    I am extremely close to buying a 2002 WRX. I have talked to many of my friends and one of them told me that the 2002 WRX isn't very good.
    Is it true it does not have power steering? And is the 2002 model a bad model?

    No.

    Define "bad" so we know what that actually means.

    All i can offer you is purely subjective personal experience. I bought an 02 WRX wagon. It is my first Subaru and i have to tell you i am truly in love with my car. Almost to an unhealthy extent. Do not launch this car if you purchase it, and always tune for any mods that change airflow in or out of the motor.

    You're friend has demonstrated that he/she clearly knows nothing.

    hahah thanks! Its going to be my first car. So another brief question, how much do you think I should pay for the '02 WRX that has 95k miles on it? Owner is asking 9 grand

    Look at the Purchasing forum on this site; at the top there are six (6) sticky threads. Read those threads.
