Question Impreza Reliability?

I'm trying to convince my dad to buy a 2001 subaru Impreza RS (sedan). Since it's used, the main argument in this is that he believes the car might have malfunctions in the future (seeing that it has 32k miles on it and has no warrenty). Can anyone give any info on this? I'm hoping good news cuz i really want this car (i think i'm in love...)

Thanks

That Subaru should have remainder warranty from the factory.

Subaru factory warranty.
3 years or 36k miles, bumper to bumper
5 years or 60k miles, for powertrain
5 years unlimited miles, for the paint

Since that car is less than 36k miles, you might be able to purchase the extended warranty.

If you are interested, you can give Subaru Santa Cruz a call for more details on the extended warranty. (800) 549-8490.

I have a 01 RS, with 41k miles. I haven't had any major problems yet. It would depend on how the previous owner treated it.

Yea, it really depends on what the previous owner did with it. Subarus in general are very reliable (engine at least). The old RSs have a few quarks but no reliability issue unless the person you purchase it from beat it to hell. Overall, my '01 RS has given me few troubles if any at all and it's a fun ride (VW should give up their slogan to Subaru).
