We could better inform you more if we knew what model you have and how much mileage is on it?

1990 legacy 2.2 151000miles. no service record at all. except for the 6000 miles i have driven it. I picked it up for 600 dollars. It needs a little tlc cosmetically but runs good, but i dont think any maintenance has really been done.

Intrigueing points out some good items to work on. I would guess the T belts have been replaced at least once. If they haven't, you are living on barrowed time.

I dont know what the genuine subaru belt looks like in the USA but the belt that is in there has the Subaru label and alot of japaneese writing on it with some english also.
