Anyone have a carfax subscription available?
I'm looking to get back into a legacy gt. I really miss my white w/ black interior GT, but had to sell it 3 years ago to pay for my wedding. I was going to wait a bit longer (still may) but found a used legacy nearby that "looks" decent and has a decent price.

If anyone out there has a carfax subscription currently open and wouldnt mind running the VIN, I'd appreciate it. I know its a shot in the dark.

VIN- 4S3BL676054204049

I got it! Thanks!

The carfax is clean of salvage and the other major issues. However, the car recently had a new turbocharger and shortblock put in. Sounds like the previous turbo ate it and the engine may have done some chewing. In the opinions of any of the experts, should I walk away?

The car is 108k miles, limited, $9,500.

Can you find any other info on it? Private seller or dealer? if private, ask for receipts or the dealership that did the work. Call them and ask about it. If dealership, ask for all service records available.

Any modifications?

Thanks for the tip. Its a dealer car, I'm heading over there again this weekend and will see what info I can grab. It *looks* good, but I know looks can be deceiving and I dont want to buy a money pit.

EDIT: FYI- the turbo and shortblock were replaced by a Subaru dealer.

Hello! I'm hoping to buy a 2007 subaru legacy for $8000....the guy got it off auction and is refusing to get me a car fax so now i'm really curious! Is anyone out there have a carfax one month unlimited? If so...4s3bl616177215135 Can't thank you enough.

Looks like you and Meltdown07 are trying to buy the same car.

See you're in San Diego area. What dealership are you dealing with? I know pretty much all the less-than-reputable ones.

AnnaNuthaThang 05-05-2013 09:42 AM

I believe he is a private small time dealer who got the car off an auction...he wrote me " NO CARFAXX!!" just like that. So now I know I have to see it...I may just go with a 2002 lexus IS300 oh yeah....:wub:

I walked away from the one I posted about above, and instead bought a 2008 with 80k miles. Good luck with whatever you buy, Anna.

Hey thanks...I'm going to look at the Lexus IS300 tonight with cash in hand...still waiting on a car fax...but I have a feeling this is the one. Shitty mpg but a reliable bulletproof engine makes up for it I think...
