Default Does anyone know this car

Hi All,

Just picked up a 2013 WRX Limited 5 door. I am trying to find the original owner - looking for receipts etc... Clean car, WR Blue, 89k miles. No sunroof, no heated seats.

The car was bought: 06/27/2013 Metrowest Subaru

moved to: 12/28/2016 53,866 Wagenhaus Fayetteville, NC

then back to MA 05/10/2018 in the westboro area.

Thanks

Ray

Sounds like you bought a base hatch. Premiums and Limiteds have moonroofs and heated seats, Limiteds add leather and HIDs.

Did you buy from a dealer? If the owner included those when he traded the thing in, they have long been recycled into an owners manual for a new Subaru or holy bible. The last thing an owner wants is to be contacted by the new person asking a million questions, but good luck with the hunt...looking where the vehicle was serviced during its life should definitely help.

I got this info from Carfax. Bought the car from a place that serviced the car...

WRT limited vs base - I am trying to figure out what the VIN indicates...

Thanks

Thanks Loyale93, I have seen that, and everything checks out EXCEPT the model type and trim:

JF1 is made in Japan, by FHI Fuji Heavy Industry, passenger vehicle (Impreza)
G is Impreza
R wagon/5 door wide body;
7: 2.5L turbo
E: Model trim
6- manual seat belts, dual front airbags, dual side airbags (on seat back), front/rear curtain airbags (on roof).
Check Digit
D- 2013
G: 5spd manual, awd

According to the table I see that E should be "2.0 Premium, mr, nav/WRX" for the impreza, which it is definitly not

Nothing serious, Only to fill in the car's history - service records, etc...

It will likely become OBE as I go through things...

Have you asked at a dealer? I've done this and walked out with a pile of printouts.

Hi Jack,

I did. They can tell me the warranty work done, but nothing else.
