TKHarrold Posted August 15, 2017 Share Posted August 15, 2017 Folks: Looking for a little advice as I"m about to buy my first Subaru. I'm looking to buy a 2013 Legacy 2.5i Premium. It has 60,500 miles. 1 owner who has to turn it back to the bank due to repo issues. I have the carfax maintenance record, as noted below. I'm mechanically inclined; have worked on maintaining all my past cars and seldom take them to dealers/mechanics. Only if the work is too ugly for me. I think this carfax isn't "impressive" but also not that bad. Note it does have brand new tires and also the body and paint is extremely clean. The repair noted in the carfax from the wreck can't be noticed--and I've seen lots of paint jobs. So they must have used OEM parts and paid a great shop for the paint work. I'm asking for opinions of what--based on Subaru history--I should look for as signes of possible future issues. I'm normally a Honda guy, so I'm departing from the in-line 4 or v6 to a boxer. All new for me, but I'm excited to learn. Thanks for your thoughts and here is the carfax data ( I put in dealer to avoid calling out a specific location).
