Hey everybody,

A friend of mine is looking at buying a 95? impreza coupe. It's got the EJ18 and five-speed manual. About 100k on it. It would be his first subaru, and I'm still pretty new to the EJ cars, so I was wondering, what are common issues that I should check for? We're going to have the car for about an hour tomorrow morning, but I can't bring it in and put it on the lift. I do have a jack and stuff, so I can at least pull a wheel or two to check the brakes. Of course I'm going to check all fluids, inspect the CVs and look for any leaks or anything out of place, as well as a pretty thorough driving test. What else should I look for on this car?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

None that I know of, that's a pretty tough little car, kind of under powered, but still a good starter, with lots of potential, my 96 WRX started life as a car similar to that but a 96 model.
