    Nice. As long as it's reliable and not losing fluids all over the place I'd consider that a good buy.

    Steering is a bit heavy but I figure that is result of the type of vehicle. "one" owner, obviously bought it from the owner kid, but got it for 4200.

    Everything seems alright if a little dirty.

    And the first issue pops up.

    If I trail brake, the parking brake light pops on and the stability system thinks there is an issue.

    Passenger door lock doesn't respond to the key switch.

    Okay so odd issue has popped up. Month ago I wet sanded and coated my headlights, next day the bulbs blew (cold start air temp around freezing). Changed them at work (had them on me just didn't get it done yet). Two weeks later, same conditions, they popped again. Figured it was the alternator voltage regulator, but it passed fine.

    This morning I got a battery light, but it went off about 10mins of driving

    I find it somewhat amusing that it's done around 190,000 miles, while our Legacy which is of a similar age has done maybe 35,000km? I forget the exact figure. Maybe 50,000.

    US of A. Big country with straight, wide roads.

    Natl Avg commute is 26 minutes, at a rate of 50 mph, that's 200 miles per week. Mileage does add up quickly in the States.
