it's probably best to pay to get it inspected by mechanic familiar with Subaru the little investment will help you in the long run and make sure you're buying a nice carIf you like my answer please rate as helpful and best so my reputation goes up thank you


Agreed, only thing that I can think of is Subaru's at this age and mileage have head gasket issues.


100'000 miles is routine maintenance to change the head gasket as a precaution


I agree. I had a cracked head gasket, oil pan leak and a messed up radiator cap which are common problems with these models. I consider it getting checked by a mechanic.
