Impreza's are pretty reliable on the whole as long as they are looked after and serviced regularly.

Re: HI ALL I WANT A IMPREZA

Thats a great looking car, I looked at a good few before I purchased my 2002 WRX Bugeye as mentioned check history, running gear. They are great motors and am chuffed to finally own one , if your current motor is anything to go by then looking forward to seeing your scoob a few months down the line...

Re: HI ALL I WANT A IMPREZA

v v nice vectra as Pete said above and look out for all the normal checks that they no oil leaks but they normally leak oil round rocket cover gasket near turbo due to heat off turbo so rubber perishe's after awhile, listen out for knocks in engine, get as much service history as possible, check for a smokey exhaust on a fully warmed up engine if blue smoke on the over-run could indicate a worn turbo, seals in it burning a bit of oil, should idle fine if it all over the place could be a maf sensor gone faulty should be no crunches in box check slippage on clutch, check for accident damage that it is a straight car and could go on but we be here al nite
