I recently came across a early '06 WRX. It looks well maintained and I think the price is quite reasonable if the car is really well maintained under the hood. So I am going to give it a test drive. Is there any things I should look out for in a used WRX? Anything specific to the MY05 model? (Yes, I know most WRX will be whacked very hard by the previous owner, so I will definitely check the maintenance records and signs of wear.) Also, how much should I expect to pay for a early '06 WRX base model?

Whacking a WRX hard is not a problem since the car is built for it as long as it is maintained accordingly

 

Nothing much in particular. The practice of engine wapping is quite rampant so make sure it matches with the record.

 

Around that age, it should be due for the major servicing, if it's not done. The single biggest ticket item would be the timing belt & water-pump.

 

The turbo would have also taken it's toll especially the fins.

 

Also check the condition of the rotors, they could be due too.

 

If that owner has been serviced the car at Motor Image, the service status record of the maintenance carried out in the preceding year can be retrieved from the Motor Image portal.

 

Also, how much should I expect to pay for a early '06 WRX base model?

 

Not more than $50k.

ok see wat u wan la,

 

-i will never take a strip down rex or sti. Make sure all aftermarket mods come with original parts when u take over.

 

-Make sure the turbo is spooling @ 0.6 bar above provided he has a ebc or meters with a stock td04 turbo.

-Check the clutch condition

-Check shifting condition

-Check for knocking sound during the drive

-Full lock see the tire wear, that one can tell alot.

 

Many stuffs to go, the best if u could provide me more details like the aftermarket mods and more detail before i could say more.

 

Like demon said, rex is a car meant for whacking, so dun expect to be the mint of its condition when u take over. Checking records from MI is just a joke, take out the dip stick and see for yourself. The most you can check is belt, gearoil service reciepts

:cool:

Thank you all for the advice.

 

The car is listed by a used car dealer at AML for $44,800. It is probably still available if anyone is interested to take a look. I decided against it because insurance quotes are rather ridiculous.

 

I ended up with a '06 Civic 2.0 instead...
