For sale is a very well maintained 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX wagon in the best color, World Rally Blue. $9,900 obo.
I am selling the car to save money. My brother-in-law gave me a 1990 Geo Metro and I am using that as my commuter because it doesn't need premium gas and gets double the mileage. I've used the WRX for commuting from Lake Stevens to the U-District since March of 2009. I get on average 26-27 mpg in summer and 24-25 mpg in winter. Since owning it, the car has never been in a wreck, much less bumped ANYTHING! I pride myself on being a safe and aware driver and believe it will show in this car. The car handles amazing in the summer, in rain too, and tackles the mountain passes in winter with no trouble at all. For someone looking for a great all around fun car to drive with the utility of a "sport wagon", look no further!
