I just got this car this last weekend. I am the 2nd owner. The original owner came down with some medical issues and could not drive any more. The car has been garaged for the past 2 years. Only has 74,000 miles on it. An excellent mechanic familiar with Subarus' has gone through it for me completely. Gave it an oil change/tuneup, needed a new battery, replaced a seal as it had started leaking, sp the head gasket has already been replaced. Mechanic said the timing belt should last for another 40,000 miles. Given I drive maybe 4,000 miles a year, that should be some time down the road. Rides/drives/handles fantastic. Getting it checked for alignment this Friday morning. Nice car! Got a couple of minor dings but overall body and esp. the paint in very good shape.
