i'm in favor of certified used from the dealer. its inspected and you get a warranty. you can inquire what parts will need replacing in the future. you won't get any of that from a private sale.

in general subaros are reliable. i can't say replacements parts are any more expensive than toyota or other foreign makes.

i checked consumer reports and they listed a few subaros to avoid:

Subaru Impreza WRX/STi 08; Legacy (4-cyl.) 02; Legacy (turbo) 05-06; Outback (turbo) 05-0

if you're interested in any other makes, and you're not a member of consumer reports, give me a shout, and i'd be happy to check for you.

cheers and good luck my fellow habs fan!
You shouldve read the date also
