So I am looking to buy another Subaru to replace my current daily driver and I need advice from experienced drivers who drive a Subaru as their daily driver. I'm stuck between 2 used Subarus. One is a 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i with 53,000 miles and the other is a 2010 Subaru Impreza 2.5GT with 97,000 miles. Now I'm not sure what I should be more concerned about, the year or the miles. I own a 2002 STi but it is a weekend car for me as i want to keep it in good condition. I take good care of my cars so I think both cars would last much longer than other cars but I need advice from drivers who are more experienced than me.

 

I also created this topic for anyone else that needed advice on a Subaru purchase. Feel free to post

For a "daily", go with the simpler one, especially if the owner can provide good maintenance records.   The newer one may be appealing, but you'll never get back those extra 44,000 miles.

Thanks, that is what I was starting to think about. I did some more digging and found that the 2.5i actually had a better reliability rating than the GT, and as you said, with the fewer miles I will be better off. Thank you
