I'm looking into buying a subaru impreza WRX but can't fine one with under 100,000 miles. Will I have issues with one of I buy it with that many miles?
As long as all routine maintenance has been done on schedule it should be fine.
they do come with a good warranty plus dealerships are good and helpful!
how old is it your looking into???
I would assume they are because about half of the people in tristatetuners drive evo's or wrx stis, wagons, etc.
Because tuners drive them doesn't say shit about their reliabilty. Remember, plenty of tuners drive DSMs as well.
And that makes another 1/4 of out car club lol
Someone asked for a year, I'm looking at a 2002 and a 2004. The 2002 has 125,000 miles but the engine was rebuilt at 100,000 and the 2004 has 90,000.
id say "go for the 04" but aint that the bug eye scooby???
No...unless Ferny's not in the US. I seem to recall that they missed the "bug eye" version, in the US. Ferny, why can't you find a lower milegae varient? what's your budget?
i know, thats what i meant about "aint that the bugeye?"
I think, Subarus are most reliable vehicles, but stay away from rebuilt, high mileage or modified Subarus, specially WRX. Good luck!
As long as you dont measure the oil level with the dipstick, they will last right.:screwy: :banghead: :thumbs:
I know people who swear by their subies, but then again, I'm talking about grocery getters. I don't know about WRXs....
my buddy pete just put 7.5 psi into his ej18 (i think....) he has a 95 1.8 impreza, and so far it runs just fine. Just an example I think he has like 105k on his car orginal engine
why stay away from the WRX, thats what a Scooby Doo is well known for!
(id have thought anyway)
Because you won't find a used WRX that hasn't been beat on or abused.:wink2:
oh, i gotcha!!! stay away then! take the advise, makes sense :doh:
depends what you want/need the car for. as a wrx owner, I stand by the name. they are good, very reliable cars. it is true that most wrxs have been beat on in some way but there are plenty out there that havent been all out abused. shoot for low miles and original equipment.
amen, find cars that with oem parts, for the safe side's sake.
NO Comments abt WRX....but it depends on long distance or short distance.
