So Ive been creeping around the forums for a while a now just reading and learning since I have been looking to buy a wrx for a few months now.
Ive come across alot of potentials, but none of them fit the bill. Im on a budget, but I still want a decent car, so I will stay patient to find the right deal.
But as I am looking, I have come across quite a few that have rebuilt engines and whatnot but DO NOT have salvage titles...
So for example, I was looking at this one 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX wrb and when I read "new engine", I realized that this could either be a very good thing(just replacing an old engine to give it more life), or a sketchy thing(wrecked it and took care of it himself). But I just dont know. So My question is: Is this a potential problem? Or is this expected? He says he has the receipt and it was from a Subaru Dealer. Also, in a more general sense, Is it common for engines to be rebuilt on higher mileage cars.
In a situation like this should I just walk away? Or could this be a good deal?
