Well, the question is really do you want the car? That's the question.

If you want the car - make sure that it is truly a new motor and not some junkyard boxer that may or may not be good. Even if they rebuild the motor, make sure they're using new parts and not just slapping a head gasket in and putting it all back together.

But - again - it comes down to what you want. Obviously this Forester had some interest to you or you wouldn't have bought it in the first place. But if the Forester doesn't mean all that much to you - then walk away, get your money back and find something else.

Know that with any used car (almost 10 years old, 130K miles) you will have issues now and possibly in the near future. But if they're willing to fix it and make it right, give them the chance, as long as the car is one you want and will want to drive.
