I just purchased a 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX wagon today. Cost me 6k canadian. It has heated seats and power windows lol. Um, only had 141k for kilometers and I didn't think that was too bad. I've been driving a 02 automatic Chevy Cavalier the last few years and it has 144k on it but its dying. I just really wanted a standard transmission car again because I once owned a 93 civic si that I loved. It had 280 on it when I sold that little thing. Anyway, first off id like to say... my god this car is fast.... like as in its hard to drive cause you always fight to slow it down lol. I would like to know since I just bought the car today what should I get done to it? Meaning for maintenence. The guy said the timing belt was changed at 136k so that was recent. But I want to know what I need done, I want everything done. Here's what I gleaned from reading posts: (sorry I'm typing on mobile so my grammer and spelling blows)
Oil change (valvoline synthetic)
Oil filter change
Front and rear diff fluid change
Break fluid change
Change Spark plugs (any special kind I should get?)
Check all tire pressure and balance.
Front end alignment? Its not pulling at all.
Should I change the manual transmission fluid?
Check brakes and rotors
Air filter change?
Check struts and anything to that degree
Is there other belts to change?
What else should I do? I want everything possible changed. Ill get oil and filter changed every 6k kilometers after that too. I have a couple more grand in my budget so I don't care if its costly. I just don't know what needs to be done and since I just bought it and its ten year old, time to pamper it and then send it to the spa. I want this to last another 141k lol
Anyway thanks guys!!!! Sorry ima wrx n00b
