Have had a little time now to red through the invoices, service history etc.

 

The car has done 128k with a full service history - just about due for it's next one, but supplying garage have changed oil etc, so can probably wait a couple of months. New front pads and discs recently fitted at 123k. New exhuast (full system) fitted by supplying garage before sale (literally still gleaming). Salesman said it'd had the timing belt done twice, but can only find invoice evidence of having been done once at 66k. New O2 sensor fitted about a year ago.

 

All in all very happy with the quality and quantity of history. Think my original inkling that I've uncovered a little gem looks good on paper  ;)

Whoop ! Glad you like it.

When was the last mayor service done ? Should have been includes in that.

I'd have a look see what condition the belt has done as they are supposed to be done every 40k i think.

Mine has the same amount of mileage and i was told the belt had at least 20k left on it but with no record i wasn't going to chance it. When it came off the idler and pulleys looked ok as was genuine subaru belt. It's an expensive job but for piece of mind i'd get it checked

Last major service at a Subaru dealer was done @ 102k and invoice has no mention of belts being replaced; just inspected. The most recent service @ 118k was done at an independent and no belts are listed on the parts invoice.

 

Think I'll just have to take it to my trusted local garage and ask them for an honest appraisal of the belt condition. I can see no reason why it won't have been done twice as advised, based on the money the previous owner was happy to spend to maintain it.

 

Looks like the belts are supposed to be done every 60k, according to the service schedule

Like you say if the previous owner has done everything irrelivant of cost should be nothing to worry about.

I was getting confused with the service schedual sorry, :o i have an older car anyway so could be different

 

No probs mate - I'm grateful for the advice  :)

Thanks  :)

 

The only thing I really want, well three things actually come to think of it, are a dog guard, a plastic tray type boot liner and a resin rear bumper protector. All in the name of dog protection and comfort for our fella really.

 

Replaced the rear wiper blade today as was a bit squeaky, not wiping too well and basically past it.

It's a Kenwood KDC-BT51U and has performed really well in the last couple of cars we've had it in. Also has added bonus of USB port to be able to play music from phone
