Basic stuff. Brakes, wires and plugs, tires. Nothing else was wrong or had gone wrong with it.
I bought this 95 Subaru Impreza in 2001, and it had 179000 highway miles on it. It was a one owner when I got it, and it had all wheel drive. It was in excellent condition, had been garage kept since it was bought new. I paid $1700 for it at a dealer. It was a new car trade in. The whole car was built, I was told, for the international market in Japan. It was shipped to the US to be sold new. In the few years I had it, I had no problems with it but the usual maintenance.
This car, with the exception of a 1969 Buick Wildcat I once owned, was the best car I had ever bought. I bought the car in Missouri, and moved to New York a couple years later. I drove to New York from Missouri with no issues. The truth is, I didn't expect any. I knew this car would get me to the moon if there were roads to go there. If you find one in good condition, buy it right now. It will serve you well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
