    How much would it cost to repair this WRX?

    I found this $2.4K USD Subaru WRX but it has a few problems.

    1. second gear is bad in the transmission

    2. it does need exhaust/steering work (I could live with it).

    What would I need to pay in terms of repairing the transmission? (I'm doing it all by myself, no 3rd person party).

    Also, what would exhaust/steering problems be? When I think of steering, I think of the power steering that got fucked up (Which I can live with) and exhaust problems I think of maybe a wrong sounding exhaust? Not sure.

    I don't have that much of a budget, although I have 7 grand, and I'd already spend 2 and a half grand on the car.

    It's a Subaru. Not one Subaru in the US hasn't stopped working.

    I can easily buy a transmission, but i'm trying to save money, so i'd repair it.

    Fucked transmissions are practically a death sentence for a car.

    So I might as well just forget about it, buy a nice working WRX for $4K and spend the rest on mods?

    That's what I'd do.

    Get something that works and then you can build up from there.

    Do yourself a favour and purchase an STi tranny. The WRX one is weak as shit, as you know doubt know already. I don't know about US, but around here you can found some decent ones for around 1.5k.

    Hmm to be honest reparing transmitions isnt a good idea. I'd prefer to either get a new car without transmitions problems or buy a new/rebuilt transmission and installing it on the WRX. About mods, perhaps a full exhaust system, it would replace current exhaust and might even fix car problem. About steering, it could be many things, I could tell you if I disassembled it, but if you can live with it for now than llet it be for now.

    Good luck with the car and drive safe.

    I can tell why it's cheap.

    217,000 miles is way too high. I don't even bother past 100k.

    You're going to pay 1/3 the price of the car to fix the transmission, not worth it.

    Just you can deal with it, that isn't an excuse to not fix exhaust or power steering.

    There are dents all over. Not to mention the body at the rear wheel passenger side is rusting. It will be at least a few hundred dollars to fix it properly. And if you don't fix it, it will only get worse.

    This car is a piece of shit. Don't get it. With how bad the body is, and all the mechanical failures, I guarantee you there are a ton of other mechanical problems that you don't notice.

    As a general rule of thumb, never buy a car with over 100k miles on the clock no matter what the price and never buy a car with a major part of it's structure broken. I can't speak from personal experience (duh) but I suggest that you either find a working version of the car you're looking for or find a new model completely.

    And as a second note, you said you're 14 earlier.

    You won't be driving this thing yourself until you're at least 16, and I wouldn't recommend an old rally car that became a piece of shit through neglect and mechanical wear to anybody, let alone a brand new driver who thinks he's invincible.
