How clean is it, and where are you getting it from? (Dealer, used dealer, or private party)

I thought the 96's had trunk lights? Oh, well. Only other thing I can think of is the auto trans, not as sporty as the manual, but if you drove the car and like it, that's all that counts. It's a personal opinion. Bu the price sounds good and the milage isn't too high. If it's in good condition, sounds like a good deal to me.

No trunk light? Oh man.

Even my 88 Accord has a trunk light. Which I use all the time, too.

Trunk light is an easy fix. Not too much trouble to get one in there, and it's relatively cheap, too.

Go to subaruparts.com, buy the trunk light kit. Swap the metal hinge thing and plug in the light. It's really, really easy.
