Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Subaru Impreza saloon?
The sporty Imprezas - and particularly the saloon versions - are very popular with trackday enthusiasts, so ask the seller about what the car has been used for. If it has been a regular on the race circuits, only you will be able to decide if that's something you want to worry about.
Ask about any damage or repairs. Take a good look at the service history, too - has any routine maintenance been missed or done late as cash-strapped owners try to cut corners? Hard-driven examples need frequent changes of brake and suspension parts.
