Asked by Nov 19, 2016 at 02:21 PM about the 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX Base

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

There's a 2002 subaru wrx for sale that has alot
of stuff done to it including timing belt, turbo,
intercooler, rebuilt transmission, stage 2 clutch,
flywheel, tune, spark plugs, hoses, vaccum
lines, coils, battery, intake, bov, etc.. the only
problem  is that it has a slow but small
camshaft leak and I don't know if it is worth
getting or not.. p.s. I'm looking towards trading
my 07 impreza 2.5 for his 02 wrx.

How many miles on the car? It sounds like you are buying a Ricky Racer special that may have been beat half to death. If the only problem with the car is a small oil leak, that can be fixed for not a lot of money.

200k is a lot of miles. I hope it is really cheap. To fix the leak I think you would have to remove the timing chain and cams and install new seals. If the leak is really small you could probably live with it. The engine probably does not have much life left in it anyway.

To me it sounds like this vehicle is falling apart. All vehicles, sooner or later reach a point where they start "nickle and dining" you to death. Every time you turn around it's something else. You'll never reach the point where you've fixed everything. Those vehicles are at the end of their useful life! I wouldn't buy it and I certainly wouldn't trade down from my '07 model to an '02.
