I wouldn't touch it. There are head gaskets in it's future and likely in it's past. Also I would be concerned about the transmission if it is an automatic. Disclaimer....I am a known Subaru hater for what ever that is worth.

Nope. Do you just want to pick it up to drive for a year or 2? I like to find something with 100K miles or less, that way you'll have it for another 5-10 years.
