"Bought this car with 226,000 miles on it based on Carfax report that showed impeccable maintenance record on car. Scheduled maintenance was performed every 3,000 for life of car. Over 60 records in file. Who does that?
The other factor for purchase was the fact that the head gasket replacement and timing belt was performed. From my research, Subaru's have an issue with head gaskets blowing. If you are considering an older Subaru keep that in mind. It is a major repair requiring the removal of the engine.
Overall this car was very clean with only a few blemishes and no rust. Drives great! Purchased for $4,500. I think I got a great deal.
My mechanic went thru the car and agrees. Should get another 226,000 miles on it."
