I'm also not looking to have anyone make up my mind for me. I can do that for myself. Just seeing what people think mine is worth.


Must have taken quite a lick to deploy the airbags.......that in itself will destroy the resale value. If you must get rid of it, be sure to mention the full extent of the accident to cover your ass.
As far as the Subaru WRX goes, they generally live hard lives.

from what I've experienced, early 2000's ford airbags are pretty darn sensitive. a buddy rear ended somebody, and they deployed at less than 10 mph. a coworker accidentally hit the curb while parking in her 01 stang and they went off in her face. mine only had the valence replaced as a result of its crash 5 years ago, and no other damage was done to the frame or anything.

I don't even know why manufacturers use them cause I consider them unsafe. I was a passenger in an accident and those damn things nearly broke my jaw. They've also been known to kill small children. How can the U.S. government, or any other for that matter consider them a safety item is beyond me.
