Looking at buying my first WRX
Hello everyone, I'm glad to join this forum. Before I ask my question, I'd like to throw out a disclaimer that per the rules I have used the search feature but not found my specific answer, as well as read the "buyers guide".
Anywho, I found a 2006 WRX wagon with 109,500 miles for $13k. I love the wagon so it makes me excited. I have not test driven the car yet, but just so you guys know, I love in oklahoma so I dig the AWD for the weather. Anyways, this is what the guy has to say about the car:
2006 Subaru WRX Wagon
I bought this about a year ago from a used dealership in OKC. It was completely stock with about 107,000 miles. It now has around 109,500 miles. I have not driven it much because I have a truck for work. I have done all of the maintenance need myself (with the help of others). I changed the timing belt, clutch, spark plugs, transmission fluid, radiator fluid and oil (multiple times). It should be good to go for many miles to come.
Centric front rotors
Ferodo DS2500 front pads
Air pump delete
Koyo aluminum radiator with new gates hoses
Invidia bellmouth catless downpipe (wrapped)
TiC transmission cross member bushings
Group N transmission mount
Kartboy front and rear shifter bushings
V-Limited style front lip
Stg 2 tune"
I'll be honest, my knowledge on these cars would be limited at best. If you want to talk Ford SVT I'm good to go. These however, I'm not sure about. I don't know if this is a good price or bad, if there are things I need to worry about or what? I've been told subaru is up there with Toyota in reliability which I solidly believe based on maintenance obviously like any vehicle. But I was wondering what you all thought of this.
