Default Buying 08' Impreza Q's

I recently found an 08' Impreza with 134k miles. Body has some minor wear and tear but nothing unbearable. They are selling it for $3,800. Seems a little cheap for an 08'. However, I live in southern Georgia and subaru's aren't very popular down here. But I'm moving back to Washington State and know subaru's have great awd and hold their value well. Any thoughts on this car? Is the price too good to be true? I test drove it and it seemed smooth. Do Impreza's typically have longevity? Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

Find Unabomber's Manifesto and find the car buying part. The most important thing to do is find a Subaru specialist mechanic to do a pre-purchase inspection. It's nearly a decade old car with a boatload of miles. If there's no proof that the timing belt has been done, it's overdue by both time and mileage.

Will do. I appreciate the heads up. The car comes with a 3 month warranty also covering the timing belt, water pump, alternator etc. up to $500. So that's another nice incentive for the car. Because even if the timing belt may need to get replaced, that warranty will pay for it, or most of it. I will definitely check out that manifesto though, thanks again.

make sure the timing belt was already replaced. thats a 100k item. if it breaks they arent gonna pay for bent valves and engine damage.
