    Do a search for tips on buying used.

    Read this thread:
    2002 WRX purchasing worries?

    Then you'll have even more ideas and need to do yet another search.

    Happy shopping.

    From what I hear from other members & the shop mgr at my subaru dealer, a lot of early adopters '02 WRX's abused there cars. Maybe not intentionally, but just being unfamiliar with AWD. The transmission is the weak point in this car. Many saw the advertised 0-60 numbers and tried to duplicate them on the road or drag strip. Popping the clutch is murder because the transmission eats all the shock, not the tires (ie tire spin) as with a FWD or RWD. Just do a good check on the tranny.

    Buy the youngest car with no mods AT ALL and a full service history with the lowest miles you can find.
