Hey guys,
Looks like my trusty vw is finally nearing the end. I checked out a 1995 Impreza hatchback today, 1.8, awd 5 speed. 160k miles. I've been into vw's for about 6 years now, and the awd is appealing to my new england winter communte.

Starts, runs and drives nice, no exhaust leaks, I know its obd1, not 2, which I'm a little more weary about. What should I look for next time I go, I know nothing about subaru's, so anything that should stand out to me probably doesn't. I did hear a slight slight knocking sound, seller says its just how a subaru sounds? Sketchy or no?
The shifter has alot of play to the left and right, I assume its a bushing that a rebuild kit could fix.

Anywho, I want to buy it, how's it look? I got them down to $1500. Thanks guys, I hope to be here a while.

This forum doesn't seem to be super active. I just joined as well. I think I might need to find another user forum.
