One error in your original post is all wheel drive. It's actually not all wheel drive; it's 4 wheel drive. The difference is that 4wd is intended only for off-road or low traction conditions like ice and snow. It doesn't have a center differential, so driving it on dry roads in 4wd is not recommended, as it will give you handling problems and lead to premature parts failures.
As far as what to look for, the timing belts, any leaks, and you might want to do something to halt the rust.
By the way, welcome to the wonderful world of Subaru.

Yeah, well, is his a dual range? He didn't state. Is it a push button 4wd or is there a spiffy lever that goes up, twice.
It's a push button. Like I said Im new to the car world because I'm only 16. Thanks for all the tips, Keep'em coming!

alright cool. thanks man.
If a local shop gives free estimates its not a bad idea to have them put it on a lift and take a look. I know the guys down at my local shop so they will often look at my car for free and tell me what needs to be done to it. Then i go ahead and fix it. They also know if its something serious then they get to do it so its not like im just using them all the time and not paying them.
