    Opinions on this wrx I would like to buy

    Hey everyone, new to the site here. I've always like wrx's and the time has come where I have enough money to buy one. I found this one on Craigslist, looks good to me and only has 50,000 miles on it. The price seems low to me, but if you guys could leave any advice that would be great, thanks.

    Amazingly low mileage, that's less than 4000 a year. Looks good from what I can see.

    One thing that worries me is the clutch, it should last well beyond 50,000 miles. I emailed the seller and am waiting for a response. Keep the good comments coming!

    Usually low mileage means the car sat in a shed with problems for 8 years. You never know though!

    I would go test drive it but is a 2.5-3 hour drive from me. I'd like to be sure on it before going.

    Do you know anyone else in the area that can test drive it for you? In my mind it's impossible to be sure unless it's been driven.

    No I don't know anyone else in the are unfortunately. Ill really try to question the seller, and if I'm feeling confident enough ill go check it out and possibly buy it if everything seems okay with it. Anything specifically I should ask the seller about it besides how it has such low miles and about all the history reports?

    I'm not familiar with buying GD's so I can't give much input. I'd ask about the clutch comment - why does the seller think it will need to be replaced soon? Is it slipping yet? Standard questions like any other owners, stories, service records, tire life, etc.

    These cars buid for drive and performance so if this car has been sitting for a long time you need to make sure gasget seals are in good condition and no engine sluges as well as all the seals for radiator hoses are in good condition don't buy the car just because it has low mileages it may cost you more in the future.

    I'm thinking that I should try and jump on it while I can, a stock wrx with such low miles for that price is hard to find.

    Thoughts on wrx I would like to purchase

    Hey everyone new to the forum here. I'm very interested in purchasing this wrx, but would like to get others input on what they think of it. To me the price seems low for only having 50,000 miles. Any input is greatly appreciated,
