    Hey guys, I joined Clubwrx in august and was saving for a rex. I finally found one that works for me, but the price is a little too good to be true. Im gonna check it out tomorrow but I would like your guys opinion. I would also like to know what can go wrong or out around 150k. Here's the link-- 2002 Subaru WRX

    Thanks guys

    Well.. it's AT, which no one wants, and it's modded with no mention of tuning. That could account for the price.

    Pros:
    *reasonably good coilovers (EDFC compatibility starts with Tein Flex system which are around $1500)
    *What appear to be JDM headlights. If authentic, those fetch a pretty penny.
    *Tidy interior, aside from a strange blue button next to the fog light switch

    Cons:
    *High miles
    *Cracked bumper
    *Intake and exhaust with no mention of tune
    *The 4eat is an awful transmission.

    All summed up, it's probably not too bad a deal, but don't buy this car expecting it to last. I'd go into it expecting a project, and have a budget set aside for an engine rebuild at any moment.

    Not to sound nosy, but why do you have to have an automatic? Physical needs?

    I have a prosthetic leg. Long story short, I decided to have my leg amputated because my I only had like 30% muscle and no knee cap. It was impossible to do basic things. Now I walk just like everyone else. I wanted to learned how to drive a manual. I can do it, but hardcore traffic would be to tough. Im wanting my new car to be auto. Just for comfort. If I get the rex I will post some pictures and show you guys how I drive my Dad's RX8

    Gotcha. Yeah, prosthetics technology has progressed by leaps and bounds in recent years. It's astounding what they can do now.

    The 4eat just isn't well-suited to the 2.0L turbo engine. I think you'd be happier with the 2.5L in the 2006+ cars or the Legacy GT. The Legacy also has a 5 speed auto, which is pretty good.

    Yeah...Injen Intakes are terrible for the GDs...especially if they aren't tuned for.
