    Hey guys looking to Join the family

    Hey guys looking to join the subaru family, looking at a 2002 wrx.
    Heres a link to the one I am checking out tomorrow, guy seems nice. Stay at home dad, and the second owner.
    2002 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon

    Says he has clean title and all just worried and really can get a carfax for it. If anyone has a carfax they could run on it for me that would be awesome. Again thanks guys for reading and looking forward to some subaruing.

    Welcome

    So the thing that concerns me is aside from the clutch needing to be redone and the dent on the fender, the car seems clean. That mileage is also really great. Why is he asking so little? A bugeye in this condition (without the dent and bad clutch) would normally run 9,000$+. A new clutch certainly won't cost 3 grand.

    This makes me think something else is wrong. He also doesn't have any engine bay pics

    There was a 2002 wagon very much like that one that had a bad motor in the Miami area not too long ago. Also, carfax means jack, not everything reports to carfax.

    Yup, thats what im worried about. Especially since miami had other bug eyes at a higher price. I went to go look at it and everything seemed fine. Car ran fine but I told him id give him a call back hoping I could get some help from you guys.Guy seems like a straight shooter. He is an older guy who does IT work, second owner and the clutch isnt gone but needs its 90k service. Thanks

    Probably a smart choice.

    Yeah the guy seemed to not really give a hoot about the car, it was dirty, the inside was clean but full of dog hair, the engine bay as seen was filthy and their were some rust spots around the car.
