Hey all,

I've joined your nice forum to gather info for my near future WRX purchase. I'm looking to buy a 2002-2004 Sedan or Wagon in October. If your know of any in Wisconsin, Michigan, or anywhere in between let me know. Good site though...I approve

Seth

Welcome! Why 02-04? The 04 and 05 are nearly identical except for an interior makeover (same engine, exterior design, etc).

Hey thank you!
Those seem to be the years in my price range. I will have exactly 10K in cash for a WRX.

Ah, ok. You might want to widen your search to include 05's just in case one is cheap enough. Those are all the years that had EJ205's (2.0L WRX). Personally, I think it's probably the longest lasting of the USDM turbo motors. The EJ255 makes more torque, but that tends to cause other problems. EJ205's tend to survive well even at high mileage. They also get slightly better fuel economy

Good luck!
