    Check for leaks from the engine and shocks. The oil seals would have worn out by this time if they have not yet been replaced.

    Check for boost leaks and for any knocking or pinging during hard acceleration.

    Check that the aircon is still blowing cold air. Also check the condition of the cabin filter. Ask if the evaporator has ever been replaced.

    Ask to see the maintenance stamp book if it was serviced in the casa.

    Check the level and quality of all fluids: oil, coolant, brakes, power steering, transmission. Ask when these were last drained and replaced. Not just topped off.

    Unless the WRX you are looking at was raced at the track for extended periods or modded heavily, the maintenance checks listed by SpinCycle is common for a used car with a turbo.

    Nothing really stands out as a major issue. But if the carís been modified, you need to ask the mod list and check for issues related to those mods.

    Oh and check the belts and water pump as well.

    Just follow manufacturer's recommendation on periodic CVT fluid change....every 30-40k kms depending on use/abuse....Baby it if you're keeping it long term.Common Subaru problems

    Subaru turbo engines have proven to be reliable but if buying used, just make sure you get one with no problems with its turbocharger.

    Ask the owner for a detailed maintenance history.
