you might like the Q and A on this recent thread:
or this one from a while back but about buying in the Seattle high price market:
when was there a recall on brakes for a 2000-2004 variety outback.?If the owner has all or most of the service records on the car, that is a big plus.
I would have it checked out by a mechanic. Have it checked for RUST. There was a recall on the anti lock brakes. Until it was finally fixed right, I was having brake problems every 10k miles. Check axle seals,cv joints and boots. It looks well cared for. In my opinion, too high on price.
