Gotta pay to play. If the body is as clean as it looks in the photos and the interior is in good shape, that car's a bargain.

Bargain? Fair possibly, but a bargain?

Indigo is 'merican, I see lots of postings over there for wagons for 5/6/7 grand.... USD in not nearly nice of shape. So 8 grand Canadian for a 60 mile , 03 wagon , 5 speed is a pretty good deal for some areas. But that car does not even have leather/sunroof/esp or alloy rims!

No sunroof is a good thing, IMO. A PD isn't an ALH, and 100K kms is unheard of. Good luck finding any ALH with that few km on it, much less a manual transmission wagon.

I tend to agree on the sunroof. I go back and forth on leather vs. cloth. Although I do think I'd prefer a vehicle with 100K more on it that has just had a bunch of the wear items recently replaced (brakes, suspension, clutch, maybe turbo, plugs, starter) over a high priced gem that has a bunch of things just about to go bad.

Suspension is probably not perfect, but OK for a while. Depends on how picky you are. Clutch is barely broken in, as is the turbo. My car has the original starter at 360K miles. I replaced the OE brakes on my car at 150K miles. I don't recall if the timing belt is done on this car, but if not it certainly needs one. Otherwise you could easily drive this for a few years and do nothing to it other than filters and fluids.
