Thought on high mileage Subaru? Don't know the brand. Please help.
Don't know Subaru. Looking at a high mileage car, don't know if i should
stay way. I drive 10K/yr mostly short distance city, some highway. Don't
know how to assess all of the work done (eg good sign, bad sign).
Listing says ... "Clean title, ONE OWNER, Has never been in accident, Clean
CarFax available for free, AWD, Brand new Engine Valve Cover Gasket set,
Brand new Wheel bearing and Hub assembly, Brand New CV Axel shaft,
Brand new Water outlet gasket, Brand new Fuel injection Plenum gasket set,
Brand new Engine Intake Manifold gasket set, Brand new Coolant Passage
Manifold, AND ALL SERVICE PAPERS AVAILABLE."
Watch out for leaking head gaskets.
High mile CVT's are a very expensive replacement which can happen at any time with a high mile car. Notice that I said replace, not repair? $8,000 or so! If your car has the 4 speed automatic there is less to worry about as they are pretty reliable. As always have your car checked out before buying.
If you're talking about a 2006, it definitely doesn't have a CVT. And, even if it's a 2010 or newer like mine, the dark clouds painted by numerous people on this forum are greatly exaggerated, in my opinion, regarding the performance and reliability of CVTs. Having all the service records is VERY DESIRABLE... Take a closer look at what was done and WHEN they serviced the car. It will tell you more than anything anymore on this forum can tell you. Good luck.
