2005 Subaru WRX

Asked by Nov 20, 2016 at 12:37 PM about the 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Base

Question type: General

There's an 05 wrx with 140k miles and nothing
seems to be wrong with it but it needs a front
driver side cv axle. I was looking towards
trading my 07 2.5i for it. Don't know if it would
be worth getting because I don't know how to
fix the axle.

The replacement axle done at a local mechanic will run you around $300-$550. But have the car inspected by your own mechanic before purchase on the chance there are more issues than just the axle and not the transaxle and other major problems.

I am always wary of cars that are advertised that say "it just needs one thing". If that were true the owner would probably just fix it. If you can't drive the car before purchasing it you may end up with a pig.

You should be able to get a half decent trade in on an '07 model. Why not look at something newer? Like maybe a '10 or '11 model. You may even be able to get some kind of used car warranty with it too. In my opinion you'll be better off then trading down to an older model. HTH. -Jim

Sigh...axles are way under $100, with labor to install 3/4-1/1/4 hrs, so this is a simple $200 job. I trust you realize that your NA 2.5i is MUCH torquier and satisfying around town than the smaller blown 2.0T? Given this old "slingshot" nature of Subie turbos you may be quite disappointed. As noted, going "backwards" with rust- prone Subies is not generally a good idea either. The $200 halfshaft job is NOT the major consideration in your decision here....
