I bought a newer car and that’s why I’m looking to get rid of it. It’s been a really good car that I could rely on. No problems with it other than some interior wear and tear, and some exterior scratches with the sun faded hood scoop. Clutch and turbo was changed this year and a lot of engine maintenance was done last year. 

See a better way to drive a bigish wagon?


  1. Love these things. I had a 2002 Impreza WRX wagon, which was a very similar ownership experience. If the timing belt was recently done, and there is no coolant in the oil, this might be a good buy at this price.

  2. Owned an 05. Super short gearing, combined with low rpm tq from the quick spooling td04 turbo, fun quick car to run through the gears. Great buy!
