I just bought a 2000 Outback Limited Wagon with 171k for $1800. The previous owner was a second owner. He says that during the time he owned it he never changed the timing belt. How do I inspect the timing belt to know if it should be changed? I know Subaru recommends changing it every 80k.
If in doubt, get it changed. Much cheaper to do that than repair the damage when a belt snaps!
just get it replaced. there's not much way to check it on a Subaru without opening it up the same as you would to replace it.
