Hey everyone, I just joined the forum because I'm thinking of buying a Subaru. I have been doing research online, looking at old posts etc., but I hope to get your opinions on a specific car. I'm looking at a super clean 02 Legacy Limited with only 61,000 miles on it. If you follow the link below it'll take your to the car on the dealer's page. The carfax looks really good, appears that it's one owner and was serviced every 3000 since new, even had rust proofing added. The price listed online is incorrect, the car is now $8995 and I hope to lower that a bit. I'm in NYC if that makes a difference. Anything I should look for when I go tomorrow to drive it....?....and maybe take it home....LOL.

I can't really get the link to work for some reason, it takes you to the used car inventory the car is on page 9, sorry guys.

Those are good cars, and with that low of mileage, it is just barely broke in for a subaru. The only thing I can think of to check out is make sure the car has had the 15k service and 30K services done on it. If it hasn't get those done right away if you buy it. You should be able to tell if it has been done by looking at the color of the fluids. Maybe have the brakes checked out as well, other than that not too much goes wrong with subies. Be prepaired though, once you drive a subie you will never go back to any other car lol. Good luck.

Wellllll, dunno about that but.....:D

There was a recall on the rear subframe. Make sure that was done. Corrosion issue. Amazingly there seems to be very few recall bulletins on this model. If it's that clean, and even if it didn't have the 15k or 30k service, I'd grab it and have those done myself.
