ok here is the deal
my mom own a 2000 caravan and she is now willing to consider a different vehicle due to economy and ease of maintance
i maintain her vehicle for her and it is a PITA
lookin to get something awd for the winters here

i found this 93 impreza wagon (no-turbo) with minimal rust, auto tranny, and 55,000 miles on it craigslist for $3850 but both blue book and nada say $1000 less. of course i would want to negotiate but at this price i think its gonna be difficult to find a vehicle this reliable and especially being a awd

what are common problems with this car?
what are things i should look at/out for?
would you recomend buying it?
