    How many miles?

    That's an LS which I believe has an air suspension. I've heard that the air suspension is expensive to fix if it breaks.

    At this age the air suspension is a liability.

    paisan's went out and he replaced them with coil springs because it was cheaper.

    you could get $2.5k in Seattle for that car.

    Whats mine worth-

    1992 Legacy Wagon
    314,626 miles
    overdue for timing belt service
    AC broken burns a touch of oil on startup.
    lots of door dings,paint peeling from bumpers.
    would make a great 'Island car"

    My answer: more to you than to any potential buyer.


    Just keep it running as long as you can.

    I was kind of kidding when I asked the question, but I have to get rid of it. Love the car but it is getting tired.

    Picked up a Toyota Sienna for family transport. First non-Subaru Ive owned in 13 years.

    I think I got my $'s worth. I bought it 9 years ago for $3,800 with 100k on it. The car has needed very little work over the years - a couple of timing belts, battery, tires brakes and one wheel bearing. I will be happy to get $600, not too sad to part with it for $300.

    My 02 Legacy is running strong with 103k, It has been a good car too.

    I have a Sienna, also. They're comfy vans, very practical.

    We've had at least one Subie in our driveway since 1998, though. In the snow there's nothing better.
