Advice on Subaru Outback purchase; Outback vs. Legacy Wagon
I have an opportunity to buy a 2000 Subaru Outback Legacy AWD Wagon locally at a good price, and would sincerely appreciate any advice you can offer. It’s been driven and kept in the dry climate of Silicon Valley, and appears to be in immaculate condition. I may only need it for a few months, but it seems easy to resell, and if I keep it, it would make a good car for my wife who would only need it for local errands. I’m having it inspected now as well. A few quick questions:
1) How does the Subaru Outback compare with the Subaru Legacy Wagon? Are they pretty much the same? I thought the Outback was based on the Legacy, but one mechanic told me recently that the Legacy Wagon is a different model.
2) Would you offer any special cautions/instructions for this 2000 Outback model? See specs below.
3) Any special maintenance advice for this model?
Any and all advice is much appreciate. I’ve been working in Manhattan and have not needed to own a car since my trusty Volvo 240 of college days.
