Well, I think I'm already in love.
A few things left a sour taste in my mouth:
The wipers had to be replaced by the dealership because they were literally falling apart.
There were (and still are, a little) stains on the seats. The last owner must have been a filthy SOB to have that much grime after only 100k km. I had them clean it again and it took care of the worst of it.
They delivered the car with less than a quarter tank of gas in it. Now, I get that I'm not paying some stupid amount of money for a PDI, but seriously? A tank of gas?
Good things that stood out:
The car appears to be in good shape
Christien was very helpful and immediately addressed every concern I had, like replacing the wipers and getting the interior re cleaned.
Overall I'd give Subaru Give Nord a marginal passing grade. Give yourself lots of time so they can fix those little things on the spot. I felt a little rushed, both with my own pressure to drive home that night, and with the number of things that I found and thought were pretty obvious.
The car definitely needs winter tires, that'll be the first item to get knocked off the list.
Does anyone else think the headlights (low beams) are like an old man pissing into a hurricane? They were awful! And the headlight shape is perfectly sculpted to collect road dirt and slush directly over the low beam lens. I had to stop three times on a 300km drive last night to clean the headlights so I didn't have to use the highs to see around a corner! Not sure if the PO just used shitty bulbs or if I'm going to be plugging in some HIDs in the near future, but I really didn't enjoy driving at night with degraded vision.
Putting my first order in to Subaru on line parts shortly for the seat back protectors and rear sway. The stock stereo needs some work too...
I think my wife is going to hate me soon
