buying my second impreza

hi looking at buying another impreza (dont even know what possessed me to sell my last one its a 93 plate wrx, the advert says as follows: I have only owned this car for around 3 months in that time i have had a new air flow metre and cam shaft sensor as these were at fault she ran great for a month and now has an intermitent fault regarding the fuel pump.

The car still starts and drives but doesent like full throttle and does occasionly cut out but starts up again??

when on the road she drives good with crisp handling smooth gear change and has more than ample power when on boost. she does not smoke under load or when idleing.

anyone any idea if it is fuel pump as i seem to think it may be just a filter problem, any advice would be aprreciated, thanks

Im on Impreza number four and Subaru number five

Walk away... dont buy it.... save your money and buy one that runs right without faults

Advice is free... but garage labour costs are not!

Why role the dice when there are thousands of cars out there???
