New to Subaru's in general

My question to you gentlemen is, how many miles is too much for a first time buyer? For ex: I am currently looking at a silver 02 WRX with 128K... Is that too many miles to buy? The car itself is in GREAT condition, and I have heard that Subaru's in general tend to last a long time if you take care of them. Just wanted to get some opinions from people who know and live by Subaru's.

Abuse and neglect does.
And a WRX is high on both of those lists usually.
Welcome aboard. This may not be the best site for WRX stuff, but is the best site for serious help and suggestions that I've found.
I do believe some regulars have WRX's.

I sell Outbacks with higher miles than that for decent money after I've redone them.
But Outbacks don't typically get abused. And often the only real neglect is denial about a HG issue.
Usual stupid stuff. Are all tires the same size, if you turn sharp does it have torque bind, look for fluid leaks, evidence of recent repairs, etc.
I'm hardly a WRX expert so hopefully folks that know them better than I will comment. But miles alone on a Subaru don't mean much in my opinion, but it does effect price.
