Summary:

Good second hand buy

Faults:

Radiator split on driver side front of plastic tank 227000km, replaced with locally made unit. Both front drive shaft boots split and drive shafts worn, both required replacement. Repair costs $1300 including parts.

Timing belts replaced at 200,000km.

Alternator has been noisy since buying the car, but is still turning over.

General Comments:

Very reliable generally, drives well and is comfortable.

6 Speaker stereo system with tape deck sounds great with an iPod and tape adapter!

Holds the road very well and is a good car with plenty of torque.

The interior is good, though the seats can be a bit uncomfortable on long trips and the carpet on the driver's side is worn badly under the pedals.

For an eleven year old car it is still going strong. If I could afford a new Subaru I would not hesitate to by one.
