Default Looking to buy a 02 WRX. Have some concerns

Hi guys, thanks for your time. I found a dealer local with a 02 bugeye wagon WRX... Has 135k on the clock, had one owner, clean title no accidents. A some concerns. When I started it, I did the HG check while the engine was warm, having my friend look in the coolant overflow tank for bubbles, he said he saw one when it started, but when I revved it up a bit none were seen. So OK. Maybe the HG is good? The exhaust smelled sweeter than normal. Took it for a drive, when I let out the clutch to go into first I noticed a knocking/ticking noise coming from the trans. It only made the noise while I was driving, in every single gear, the noise would go with my speed, so the more gas I gave it, the more I would hear the noise. What could that be? I can tell its not a good noise, its pretty loud too. The dealer said they would get that fixed before it was sold...any advice with this? Can I trust that they fix it? My plan was to take it to oakos (subaru performance shop in my area) but they were closed at the time. Any advice throw it at me. Thanks!
