My son's hot on the car purchase trail. He has his eye on a '99 Impreza RS. What's the board's opion on value?

90,000 miles
5 speed manual
just had head gaskets replaced
seems to have a front end hobble (could be tires or alignment?)
check engine light is on
a couple burn holes in the seats
body rust and dent free
blaupunkt cd player
aftermarket muffler

I did a carfax check and it indicated it originally was owned by a leasing company, for the first 47,000. Does that mean it was leased or was it a rental?

is it from a dealer or a private party? that will make a big difference in overall price.

Given the front end wobble and the CEL, both of which could turn out to be somewhat expensive to fix, I would offer about $6000 for it.. But then again, resale on soobs isn't very good here.

It's from a small dealer of used Subarus in WNY. I think he does alot of EBAY sales too.

check out the front end wobble first, could be a tire out of balence cheap or some bent suspension componets expensive. If it turns out to be nothing major i would go around 6,000 too.

Take it to a mechanic to find out what the CEL is for and to check the front end so you'll know what you may need to put into it.
