If the car hasn't been previously damaged it sounds like a very good buy but it sounds to me that the car has something from the past history. If you haven't checked Car Fax it may be a good thing to do. Hopefully this car doesn't come with a Salvage Title. When you see deals like this you have to wonder why. Then again, good deals do happen. As always, buyer beware.

Premium gas, yes indeed but not a real biggie and you don't have to use it all the time. Check the Owner's Manual.

my H6 has side impact air bags, and i think this one should too, i'd wonder if those went off and were replaced properly.

I bought mine with 62K about 2 years ago for upper about 10K.
I use mid grade gas all of the time. Not much extra in my mind versus regular 87 octane.
I would be a bit concerned with the t-bone. A good frame guy might be able to confirm if it was put back together right. Maybe not.
I would look at the tires also and see if there are any signs of uneven wear. If brand spanking new tires are on it, I would be a little cautious.
Good luck with your search!

what are you coming from? if you're coming from the EA82 80's era subaru's you're going to think NASA built this thing.
How fun is the h6 to drive?
ours does plenty more than we need, i like it. but if you're coming from something 90s-ish you might be a little disappointed if you're looking for a sports car. don't get me wrong, i love ours and it drives great for us, but it's not a "fast" car either - keeping in mind "fast" is subjecive. that's not why we bought it.
our wagon feels a bit more like a SUV than our other soobs (legacy's, impreza's, XT6), but those are all very low to the ground and hug the road like crazy. this car is big, heavy, a wagon, but has tons of safety features and improvements.
