How is that race-change therapy going, anyway? Any side-effects from the meds?

Does anyone know what the reliability of 02 wrx variants is if they're relatively unmolested?

An automatic hatchback just popped up an hour away and it's got the same mileage as my impreza ts hatch.

Same body, but 60hp more in stock trim. I'm probably going to have this car for a while and something more fun would be pretty awesome if it isn't a money pit.

i have an 05, the 02/03 years are notorious for having glass transmissions but that is for the manual, not sure how the automatic is.

the turbo could be going depending on the mileage as well

About 130k miles on it.

I guess that all depends on how much the car was dropped into drive from neutral at 4k rpm...

I guess i can also wait and keep looking for one a few years younger as long as it's a bugeye hatch.

i'd ask for a record of maintenance performed

 

water pump/timing belt should be a given

the health of the suspenion

battery

intervals and which fluids used for motor/trans

spark plugs

brakes

recalls performed

 

a compression & leak test would save you a lot of heartache

 

overall they reach 170-200k all the time with proper maintenance and, as you said, a lack of 4k neutral dumps would help the transmission tremendously
