Need Help!!!! With This Subie
im new to the subie community, im coming from the honda/acura community and want to try something new .. i would like to own a gc8. i found a local gc8 for sale. my question: is this car worth buying or owning. i checked the car out a couple of days ago, and the body isnt really bad. it lines up fine. i turn the car on and it was running for about 10 mins. the temp was fine and the car didnt overheat. after i turned the car off, a did notice the smell of antifreeze or coolant. i didnt notice any thing leaking or smoke coming out of the engine bay. the owner explain the situation of the car. i also test drove a 05 subaru rs at a subaru dealer and the engine smell kind of funny, is this common with subies.
well any posive feedback or positive critism is much appreciated.
HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK THIS CAR IS WORTH????
HERE THE AD >>>>
2000 Subaru Impreza RS Coupe with jdm wrx motor
Mileage on Chassis: 160k
Mileage on Motor: ~60k
Mileage on chassis and motor when swap occurred: ~140k and 40k
Selling my RS with a 2003 jdm wrx swap that comes with ACT street clutch and lightweight flywheel, koyo racing radiator, flexialite fans, short ram, and 6 disc cd-changer. Everything else is stock.
The car needs the head gasket replaced because coolant is being eaten and I've checked all hoses and replaced the thermostat and water pump but coolant still diminishes after driving for several days.
The car has normal paint chips on the scoops and vents. Driver side door has a major bend on the edge (stupid me for backing up with the door open...). It recently suffered an accident where the front bumper and both fenders were damaged. The alignment is off and moves a little to the right. Some other minor dents and scratches here and there.
- The fenders were replaced but has yet to be painted and I have a spare silver bumper.
Reason for selling:
I had 5 years with the car and as much as I loved it, I am tired of the problems and I want something more reliable. The car can still be driven but I do not want to deal with all the repairs. I am unsure what the fair price for this is but any feedback about the price would be helpful. I am looking to get about 4000 but I am open to offers.
