Talking New Member.. Maybe First time owner ;)

Hi People

I am based in Gaborone , Botswana. In the retail trade here. Family business. Driven volkswagens and nissans to this point...

Pumped almost $6000 into my Nissan Navara in under 2 yrs

Soooo , I am looking to buy my friends Subaru and I wanted some guidance/feedback from the "pro's"

Subarua Impreza 2.5 WRX 2007
92 000kms

I know the owner and the only problem he indicated is that you have to use your foot to pull the clutch up otherwise the cruise control wont set.... Any ideas on what would cause this? Major or minor?

Is there anything that I should look to replace/expect to replace on this vehicle in the near future?? It has been for all of its services and I feel the mileage is very low for a car that is going on 6 years old.

I have never owned Surbaru. If you look after an engine like this what can one expect out of it mileage wise on average if looked after?

Please people , show me the way. I am ready for a change, I just dont want a money pit!

Look to be sure that the car hasnt been modded. Since it is your buddies car ask him what kind of service was done on the car, oil changes etc.
Be sure that the car doesnt blow any blue smoke while under boost and that everything runs smooth.
