Hey. I have an opertunity to buy my old folks car for under 30% of the market value here in Norway. I am BMW driver and has been for 8 years now, but I find them really expensive to find a nice old car.
It is a Legacy Wagon 2.5 GX 1999/2000 with automatic and VDC and air springs, everything has been changed lately. To mention some Air Springs, Timing Belt, Brakes, winter/summer tires Oil etc.
If im not buying the Subaru from them I will probably get a Suzuki XL7 or another nice looking old SUV instead.
The only thing that made me abit concerned is the thing about the topgasket issue on the 2.5 engine. The engine is running smooth, when pushed and when I drive it for 2hours or more. But the coolant has dropped 10-15cm in a year now, and as I understand this means there is a leak somewhere?
Something special I should look for the find out if there is a problem or not?
