I'm thinking of buying my first Subaru, a Legacy 2010, 2.0D SE Nav Plus, 150bhp (UK)

I'm coming from a predominantly Fiat and Vauxhall background, so I'm used to my fair share of repair bills!

Im just looking for pointers really, anything to look out for, known issues, etc. 

Thanks in advance!

Hello and welcome, unfortunately the subaru diesel engine seems to be a bit of a plum really with loads of failures main one being the crankshaft, they did revise the crank on later models but it's still not a very good power unit and the cost to repair seems uneconomical as there are loads of scoob diesels out there for spare or repair with failed engines, if I were you I would go for a petrol model as they are so much more reliable
