Just wanted to say thanks for all the good info on this forum! I bought a 03 wrx wagon about two weeks ago. Have always wanted one but never had the chance until now. My friends father in-law had it and I was always checking it out. Finally I got it!! He bought it from the original owner at 45000 miles with all the paperwork and receipts. Drove it to work on hwy every day enough to put 200,000 miles on it! Its still in great shape, tight steering, engine is smooth, shifts smooth ... So far I have replaced the windshield wiper transmission, timing belt, tensioner, pullys, dash lights, oil, oil filter, air filter. It is completely stock. So here in Ohio its been pretty cold and what do you know, I start smelling gas Get on Clubwrx and there is the answer I have the original window sticker, sales invoice, oil change ... so I keep looking through all the paperwork and there is the letter that Subaru sent about the gas smell recall from 2010. So I head to local dealer with letter in hand. Gave it to the service lady and she typed a few things in her computer. Says there are two more inspections to be done too. Rear lift gate stay and lower control arm. So no charge for anything I ask and she says nope when can you drop it off I still have a leaking passenger side valve gasket, blown out cv boot, and need to do brakes bad but very, very happy with it.
Couple of pics from when I picked it up. was sitting for two months. I got the original wheels too.
