At some point (supposedly), Subaru made a change to the Phase II head gasket to address the leaking problem. Again, I don't know what year that was done. But the newer, the better.
I've read that the 2000's (only) have a smaller front rotor. They quickly found out that it was not enough for the Outbacks and upsized in 2001. One reason to go with the newer vehicle.
Newer vehicle, less depreciation, even with the higher (per year) milage. It might mean something a few years from now if you are looking to deal it or sell it.
2000 was the first year of the model run. There are always some teething pains. (ie the front brakes)
Unless there are features on the Limited that you really can't be without, I'd say go for the 2002.

The '02 will have bigger front brakes like commuter mentioned, it also has the in-glass radio ant., 2 trip odometers, a outside temp gauge, and the cool delay off dome light (yea little stuff).
I believe the Limited comes with a sunroof, cold weather package, and I believe the side airbags.
It's a close call, but seeing the price and mileage about the same, having a car that's two years newer is a definite plus.
