Sorry about the title, but this is a concern of mine. I'm considering owning and 04 legacy (JDM BL5) with 59,000 KM on the odo. I was told the car was barely driven and so far it looks clean. Now i've done some reading and it seems these cars engine have a tendency to blow or turbo destroyed?
Help me with my concerns:
1. The oil filter for the turbo has a tendency to break apart and destroy the turbo?
2. The Cat before the turbo has a tendency of disintegrating and damage the turbo?
3. The 5EAT transmission is good for how many miles on avg?
4. Oil change interval is 6000KM (3800mi)?
I would really love honest responses and feel free to contribute tips in avoiding any of my concerns
(btw, i posted in the 05 forum as this is the same shape legacy)
