I don't know what some of our other members think, but in picture 18 I see what looks like dried water (coolant?) on the radiator and the accessory belt cover. It makes me think that this particular car might need a new radiator sooner than later. I might be wrong, but I've seen those kinds of stains before...

Expand the region of your search!

Stroked and stoked!

Scratz, Welcome to the community.

We dont judge here so nothing to worry about, No such thing as stupid questions only stupid people ( they are the ones with questions they are too afraid to ask)

When you get a chance to test drive I would take a local tuner along for the ride. Call around to local Subaru tuning shops and see if they are willing to do inspections and test drives, Thats the best way to be sure you arent getting something someone beat into the dirt. If you get really lucky you might find one driven by someones grandma to church on Sunday.

I tell this to everybody but when you get it no matter how many miles it has runn it through a break in period. Spend a thousand miles driving slowly, control the RPM and learn how the car drives, Learn what it like and what makes it angry then you can step on it and enjoy the AWD goodness without wraping yourself around a pole.

Again Welcome, When you find an ad for one you like let us know were glad to help
