I bought my 2002 WRX brand new. It just turned its 170,000th mile. Always garaged, always maintained with excellent service records at Tom Dwyer Auto in SE Portland. New tires, new brakes, new front rotors, new battery. No mechanical problems whatsoever. The 105k maintenance was performed, and at 140k it had the radiator replaced. Always ran on 92 octane fuel, still gets the same mileage as the day I bought it. When I first bought it, I installed a pretty sweet stereo system and a bluetooth handsfree kit.

This car has never been raced on a track, nor has it ever been in a collision over 10 mph. It got rear end bumped in stop-and-go traffic once and had the bumper cover replaced. It also got scraped once on the passenger front corner by a drunk backing out of an adjacent parking spot, so the quarter panel was replaced. Paint matching was spectacular, you can't tell.
Car is long-since paid for, runs beautifully with no shudders, shifts cleanly and smooth, parking brake still works like it's supposed to. I also added a Yakima locking rack with one fork-mount bike rail. Paint overall is in acceptable but not showroom condition.
I'm asking $8500 obo - be reasonable. I'm not playing games with anyone, I'd ask the same. Thanks!
