1999 White Subaru Legacy GT - $2800


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, not sure, but I was wondering if you guys could help me decide whether or not this is a car worth buying.





- 200,000 miles on chassis, and only 50,000 miles on new rebuilt engine

- Repainted from Green to White 1 month ago via Maaco paint (Door-jams not painted)

- NO rust

- NO accidents

- Automatic Transmission

- US Imported car to Canada, so it has miles on the cluster

- Passed emissions test


BUT no documents

- I don't know when last maintenance was made

- I don't know if the body has had a rebuild or not


I've given the offer of $2800 to him and he accepted. Though what I'm doing is i'm taking a huge risk of a 200,000 mile chassis i'm buying...


What do you guys think, is it worth the purchase?


Best regards,

Might be a good deal. It says on the ads that the engine has been rebuilt. If so that's a good thing as the 2.5 second gen head gaskets almost always fail around 160k. You might get a lot of life out of it. Good luck and welcome to the site. Check out the second gen forum if you have any more questions.

After driving it.. I noticed the engine wasn't rebuilt after all. THe bolts and nuts looked clean and that they have no signs of wear on them.


No receipts. Nothing.


And then I noticed that the Engine has a slight rod nock. And it's only gonna get worse in a matter of just driving it.


What do you think I should do? I'm planning on selling it and moving on. But it's such a good car too!! ugh.
