Looking at a '93 Imp....thoughts????
Posted 31 May 2006 - 06:36 PM
We came across a '93 Imp Sedan (AWD, 5-spd) here in Reno and my daughter (the mechanic to be) has decided she simple must have it.
damage to left-front headlight housing
some dings and bumps
it's cheap ($500)
the interior is in very good condition
it has an air bag
It's sounds like there's a lot wrong with it, but over all I'd say, for the price, it would be a good first car for her. And I'm sure the kid is going to come down in price when I start haggling with him.
I can deal with all the bad stuff, and she wants to do all the work on it, but what I'm looking for is anything else besides the obvious....belts, etc. that i should replace on it and things that I should check prior to buying it (I'm an EA81 guy...). Supposedly he had all the axles replaced at around 150K and had all the belts, brakes and hoses replaced around 175K, but no reciepts to prove it....
Thanks for the input.

otherwise haggle away..when u think about it 500 dollars and u get a whole car/good investment...but in order to make it work ur talking more money...maybe its best just to save a little more and find something better for a little more....
what does the kid seem like?
dumping the clutch has 5000 rpm's at every red light kinda kid?
or just a 195k mile clutch kinda kid?
haha i would buy it..good learning experience for ur kid and its an awd subaru i see ppl spending 500 dollars on used go karts. you could part the car out and prolly make your money back

I think that its an ok price....and if you an get it for less good....does it have any smells when you drive it....is the under carriage have a fair amount of oil on it....does it jerk around if you pull really really sharp turns and most importantly, when you daughter says she is willing to work on it, does she really mean she's willing to let you work on it
I have a 95 Impreza L and I'm very happy with it!!
