the life of a preowned subaru solely rests on the previous owner. mileage has absolutely no factor in subaru land as motors will blow depending on how they are dirven, not on how old they are. obivously there are exceptions to this but generally speaking, this is true.
i have seen 3rd/4th owner cars blow motors with less than 50,000
i have seen single owner cars blow with less than 50,000
i have seen 3rd/4th owner cars last well over 300,000
i have seen single owner cars last well over 300,000
these are high performance vehicles and are driven as such, often by people who have no idea what they are doing. its hard to tell you what to look for but i can tell you stay away from any car that has a fresh motor. even if its stock. that just means he drove his car hard enough to blow the motor. then you must consider what other damage has been done to the drive train and suspension since he drove like a yob.
adding "mods" do not increase the value of your car. do not go at this thinking it will be an investment. the chance of finding someone who is interested in your exact mods and what you ahve done to your car is almost as high as winning the lottery. so just play the lottery, you'll win more.
telling you what they are worth over the internet is really hard because prices can very from location to location.
i paid $3700 for my 2002 wrx wagon back in april 2015 here in ottawa, ontraio. but if the same car were to be sold in toronto, ontario... they probably could have got close to $5000 for it. spend a good week or so comparing prices around where you are. maybe even look in diffrent townships. sometimes you can find crazy deals on cars just because its a 10 hour drive away.
