questions about the WRX

i'm wanting to buy a 2002 or 2003 WRX and am just after a bit of info.
what are the running costs like, how much is a service and when are the servies due on a WRX?

I'm assuming it will be a very reliable car like most jap cars are.

but are there any common problems or things that go wrong on a WRX that i should look out for

What kind of mpg do you guys with WRX's get in town driving and also on the motorway.

hiya, I have a Dec 2002 wrx, now at 50500miles, just had biggie service i.e. belts etc, the running costs are really up to you, mine in driven normally, ie not to many playing silly buggers, considering the potential of the car I do not consider it expensive to run. on third set of tyres (at 45000 ) new pads and disc to front at 47000 miles, all in bout 28mpg (all types of driving ) Its really up to you how you use it will effect its running costs, there aint nothing like one of these cars, just been faultless and fun
