used subaru : Bill Putney(to reply by e-mail, replace the last letter of the alphabet in myaddress with the first letter of the alphabet)If there's no serious rust, and everything seems sound, you should begood to go for quite some time... my '90 Loyale had 209k miles when Igot it 3 1/2 years ago and I was a little nervous. It's now at 313k.Going just fine... try for $600-$700 if you can.change the cam belts and look forward to another 100k... through the leanyears I bought (carefully) many cars with that mileage and added another200k before they were parked behind the barnsamw"There is no car likelier to run forever, given reasonable maintenance.The Mercedes diesel comes close, but after 250k becomes quite costly tokeep. I drove a Subie with 330k on the engine and (manual) tranny - it didn'tfeel a bit tired after eight sets of tires.I bought my '86 4x4 with 123K on it. I now have 240K and it's runningbetter than ever. Price may be a little high for a 2WD. Good advice from aprevious poster on getting the timing belts changed (should be done every60K; if they were recently done, it would be a real good deal; if not, it'sa bargaining chip to negotiate the price down). Check for more opinions aswell as comments from others in the Portland area. Good luck. ---Ed---"James Potter" wrote in message...
used subaru : If one were to by a used Subaru and didn't want to spend over $15,000,what would be the best model/year to get? Are there any used Subarus tostay away from? I would recommend an "88 Justy DL.By coincidence, I happen to have one! If I were offered a reasonable sum, Imay part with it. Considering costs of travel, food and lodging when Ideliver it, costs would probably not exceed $15, 000.Let me know right away, it's only a couple days until Christmas.-JohnI'd vote for a 98 or 99 GT Wagon if you can find one at that price.Has the most power/weight of the full size cars, great handlingand all the amenities. The "L" series will lose you the biggerengine but is a lot cheaper. The smaller Impressa wouldbe easy to find in a 99 and is just as "good" if you want the smallercar. The Outback is usually a bit less of a good deal as they arehigher in demand due to the stupid desire for a "SUV" like vehicle.Same goes for the Forester.Alan Peterman Tigard, OR 97224 503-684-1984As I grow older, the days seem longer and the years seem shorter.
used subaru : If you want I sold mine :98 Impreza GT Turbo.Special series (black/gold) n°8/37French modelApprox $17.000Best car I ever drive...very powerfullCAni remember ppl recomending against buying used WRX's cause they get the shitbeat out of them from the way ppl drive them, and that they tend to be inbad shape if the ppl are selling them"jj" wrote in message...-----= Posted via Newsfeeds.Com, Uncensored Usenet News =----- - The #1 Newsgroup Service in the World!-----== Over 80,000 Newsgroups - 16 Different Servers! =-----I paid roughly that amount in $Can for a '96 Legacy Wagon LSi. Butsince I just got it, I can only go from others' experience that this isa good car.I can tell you that 1996 was the first year for the 2.5 litre engineand some of them had disastrous engine failures due to slipping valveguides. That includes the one I bought which has a new engine in itthat was replaced by Subaru under warrantee.I know that from my comparison shopping, I got a good price. A newermodel would probably blow your budget unless it has quite highmileage. In that case, you might still consider it if you KNOW that itwas well maintained and not hard driven. These cars are reputed to belike the energizer bunny if given a little TLC.
used subaru : I am considering buying a used 1983-1985 Subaru GL 4WD hatchback.If any of you have advice on problems to look out for, or options tolook for/avoid, please let me know.The price range I've seen so far here in Colorado is about$1200 to $2500 for a "clean" car. Is this typical?Also, does anybody have actual gas milage figures for these cars?Everybody I've talked to says they will get "about 30 miles pergallon", but since gas milage is a big factor in my decision(between a Subaru and a Honda Civic), I'd like to have somereal figures.Anything anybody can tell me about these cars, or Subarus ingeneral, will be greatly appreciated.I prefer replies posted to this Newsgroup, rather than e-mailed,but either way is fine.From: ()Subject: Re: Tips on buying a used Subaru Newsgroups: Date: 1993-04-16 23:03:14 PST Sounds pretty good,actually.I have gotten up to 40 mpg in my 84 DL (non4WD) on trips, low to mid-30sotherwise. I have had this car for about 3 years and it has been incrediblytrouble-free.I have an '86 GL 4WD hatchback, which was (I think) the last year theymade that model. An excellent choice for Boulder IMHO. My mechanicsaid that the later models of that style are better, and theyimproved steadily until they stopped making them. Then they wenton to the "Dark Ages" of the Subaru. The late 80's models arepretty bad. Then they got on track again with the Legacy.
used subaru : I live on a hill in Vermont, so I want to buy a 4WD or AWD car withoutbreaking the bank. That means looking for a used vehicle with a few yearson it.I'm going to be looking at a 90 subaru Legacy 5-speed sedan with 66,000miles on it. The asking price is $6,900. Any comments or tips you cangive me? Is this a reasonable price (seems a bit high to me)? Does theSubaru have any special problems I should look out for?If you have any advice to offer, please post your response and email me. (I've got to decided on this car soon and can't get back to my newsgroupsas often as I'd like.) I'll post my experience to help anyone out therein a similar position.From: ()Subject: Re: Used Subaru?

Subarus are some of the most reliable cars.However the parts are expensive and can be hard to get. I'm willing tolive with that since Subarus have a reputation for requiring very fewrepairs. I was wanted to get one with manual transmission but I wastalked out of it. Let me know how you like the manual. Do you alreadyhave experience driving a stick shift?
