Hi all, I'm new to Subaru and I'm thinking about buying a 2009 WRX sedan.
I work at a car dealership and we recently took in the 09 WRX, it's black and drives beautifully. It has approximately 72000 KM's or 43000 Miles. That being said I don't know much about these cars besides the fact that I enjoy them.
I've been driving it as my "demo" for about 400 km's and love it as I knew I would. My question is what do I need to look for before I buy? What maintenance should I look into at this point?
I also noticed what I was driving it, putting it into reverse requires some force. Is that common for Subaru's? I'm not sure.
Also, I do plan on doing somethings to it, nothing crazy. Exhaust, tuner (maybe?) intake and that's pretty well it.
I don't know what brands are good for these cars and I don't know what kind of power difference I'll see with these slight modifications. I would love to have it over 300hp but I don't know if that's possible given my parameters.
I also know that that Subaru's aren't cheap, and either are there parts. The expense of maintenance doesn't scare me, I just don't want a car that is going to need thousands ever month!
Thanks for your time and please help!
