Ok heres the deal, im interested in a 2005 subaru wrx that has a screwed up transmission. The guy wants to sell it to me for $4,000 flat. He told me that a shop he knows will fix it for $2800. Since i know nothing about subarus do you think this guy is giving a good estimation or you think hes just talking out of his ass and a to rebuild the tranny would cost way more than that? Also since the tranny is messed up you think that could have possible screwed up other parts in the drivetrain? Does this sound like a good deal or i could probably find a perfectly good 05 suby in good condition for 8k?

i wonder if you bought the car or not.. i'm new here but know someone who knows subarus very well. he actually rebuilt my engine so i could ask him if you still need an answer..

I dont really know much about these cars either, but I never see a suby wrx for 8k I was going to buy one for 9k and that was a steal only had 106km he was asking 9 900, but the dude sold it on me :(....I would maybe move on to another one, might save you on some headaches and stress, but good luck!! :D
