I am shoping for a Legacy wagon right now to serve as a third vehicle for my family. We currently have two vehicles, and this would become a commute car for my self, and a weekend long trip car for the family. First and foremost, it appears to me that Subaru's have a loyal following due to the fact there are not that many used ones on the markette, as well as the high resale value on a comparison basis.

That aside, I am curious if anyone here can tell me things to look for on 97 and newer legacy wagons, more in detail:

Services at certain milage levels that are costly and would be good to have been done.

Problem areas are certiain mileages (CV Boots, u joints, timing belts, gaskettes, etc).

Problematic years or problamatic parts (exhaust or what ever)

And any other "primers" that people here who have had a Subaru Legacy for some time.

Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone can provide.

The 2.5 engine seems to have head gasket problems, so look at the service history to see if it has been fixed.
