RS4Drew Posted July 2, 2017 Share Posted July 2, 2017 Hello Folks- My name is Drew and I am looking to upgrade from my current DD: 2003 Toyota Camry SE 5MT with 256,000 miles. It is a great car and does everything well, but does not have a lot of creature comfort options or sex appeal. It is functional and efficient. My wife and I already own 2 Subaru Outbacks: 2015 Premium (22,700 miles) and a 2002 Outback Limited (125,000). I am decent at working on my own cars here and there and love our Subaru's. Before the 2015 Outback, my wife had a 2011 which we recently traded for the 2015. The 2011 had 159,200 miles when we traded it in and ran like a champ. Anyway on the the topic. I stumbled across a 2009 Subaru Legacy 3.0R Limited (1 owner with 65 records of service history from the carfax). Of the 65 services records, the car has been serviced at local Subaru dealerships 60 times since 2008 and it would appear whatever the car needed, it got. All the minor to major service intervals as well as the expected oil changes every 3,000 miles. The car is clean and fully loaded including NAV, HK audio, and a rear wing. It is black with black leather and is extremely clean. The kicker is the mileage....196,300. I know the 3.0 6 cylinders have a timing chain, so no worries regarding replacing a timing belt. Just wondering what sort of life I can expect out of the car with the mileage. Obviously it is not a Toyota or Honda, but well-cared for 1 owner car's do not scare me either. The dealership is asking $5,495 and I was thinking about offering on Monday cash and starting at $4,000 and seeing how close to I get it without going over $4,500, knowing its needs a PA inspection being a NJ registered car right now. Am I being to optimistic on the possible purchase price based on the condition and mileage and service history knowing this is a high-end model back in the day? Kind thoughts and advice welcome. Thank you, Drew Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
