Hi! I'm new to the forum & I would like your advice on the 2004 Impreza 2.0 GX sedan..

I'm lookin at buying a new car & I've seen a few 2.0 sedans in my price range. I have a few questions:

1. What is the vehicle like in general, is it too entry level to be a fun car to drive?
2. What is the maintenance like after 100,000kms? What are the common problems?
3. I've found a very good deal but the car is due for its 100,000 service & the seller has discounted the price by the cost of the service from the dealership (which is an intimidating figure!) I know I can get it done much cheaper than from the dealership so I can save some money! What do you guys think or should I rather get him to service it & pay the higher selling price? I'm really scared of buying a lemon!

Any advice or input would be appreciated.
