I'm looking into my first Subie currently and have a few questions that I couldn't find on the search function.

1. It's a 2.5L 4-speed Auto with 149xxx miles, what issues should I look for in it while test driving and inspecting the vehicle? Anything I should be wary of (I do know timing belts are big deals in these cars)?

2. It says GL Equipment, not even Google seems to know what GL (and RB for that matter) equipment is, could anyone clue me in?

I would consider it in good to very good condition judging by pictures, the asking price is around $7k, I am figuring around $5500 is fair. If anyone has input please share, I will be checking this vehicle out within the next week or so. Thanks! Hopefully if it's the right vehicle I will be driving it home soon :D

Check cars101.com for trim and option package info.

Read up on head gasket failure and also torque bind- an AWD problem our cars can get if not maintained.

I've read about the 2001 head gasket issues. I'll check into the torque bind, thanks for the reply!:29:
