Well, thanks to the help here and elsewhere, I am now a Subaru owner. Much searching led me to a $6250 '97 Legacy wagon, 115k, brand new clutch/WRX wheels/tires/tint job. It's way more pimped out than I want/need, but I was worried that I would never be able to find a 5 speed when I really needed one (which was pretty much...now). Needless to say I am a happy camper! Pics will follow when I get near a digicam.

Got 30mpg from Tacoma-Mt. Hood-Newport OR. Nice.

Some questions for you that the car people weren't able to answer (it was a trade-in):
Is there any way to tell if the timing belt has been changed w/o going in there? If not, is it safe to wait until the 120k service or do I risk destruction? What are signs that the TB is going?

Also, where can I find an owners manual for one of these things? She didn't come with one.


:) :cool:

120-115 is only 5,000 miles. No law against doing it now for piece of mind. You can easily get the covers off enough to check the condition if you want to wait.

Call Subaru. I believe they'll give you a manual.

30 mpg. Sweet.

Good luck and welcome to the world of Subaru.
