  1. Quick question Whats the leg room like in a used forester ( such as below ) with say a 6 footer in the front. I have looked at a V70 as well and although it looks a big estate the leg room in the back is terrible if the front passengers are tall ? https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202001176291214
  2. thanks I presume tho.. that the parts are more expensive than a Ford and the independent good dealers are rarer ?
  3. Correct me if Im wrong... I had some comments made on another forum which said that it would cost me an arm and a leg if it went wrong ? Is that correct ? My car has packed up so couldn't get there as I am a carer who is luckily working locally The advert is https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201907049703108 cheers
  4. That one sold but I really like another one I have seen 2009 Subaru Impreza 2.0 R , full dealership history, 9 months MOT (KT59UDB), 3 months warranty, 100k miles £2280 Had 2 subaru's ( over 15 years ago ) and they never missed a beat... Only doing 4k miles a year, 80% local, 20% maybe 60mile max Advice pls before it goes ?
  5. As well as seeing a Forester I have also spotted an imprezza 2.0GX (2005) As on my other post I am a carer that only does about 4k miles a year, wants reliability and a nice car to drive with hopefully no big bills for next 12 months Does this fit the bill ? https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201910133276247 I check the MOT history but it only has the last one , no previous ones, although the advert says it has been with the family all the time and not rust etc cheers
  6. Thanks for that here is the advert https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202001025727283
  7. My current car has bit the dust after 3 years if faithful service ( not a subaru ) and I wanted a reliable motor as I am a carer. I only do about 4k miles a year so petrol not that important I have seen a 2008 Subaru Forester 2.0 XEn , excellent MOT history ( BK08FWS ) but very high miles 168,000 The dealer is asking £1500 Is this potentially a money put for me ? cheer
  8. Thanks for everyone's help...I think I'll say no If anyone sees a sub £800 impreza that would fit my bill..let me know !
  9. he certainly sounds genuine, my only concern is that he has only had it three months and says he needs the money for with his kiddie...it just always seem to strike alarm bells with me.. .and its over 4 hours away so I would have to buy on his word and not see it !
  10. I have seen a 1998 Impreza saloon ( non turbo ), only 80k miles, mainly subaru history, currently owned my mechanic and mot tester who will sell it to me with 12 months mot for.....£650 He say there is no rust, nothing wrong with the car, gold alloys..just needs the paint freshening up so...should I or shouldnt I I am 50+ so so worry with insurance, and only 3k miles a year Thanks
  11. thanks..i've asked quick question.. is the auto worth considering at all ?
  12. Thanks What does this sound like ? 2002 02 REG SUBARU IMPREZA 2.0 GX SPORT 4x4. WAGON. 94k MILES. IN SILVER WITH DARK FULL SPORTS INTERIOR, FULL ELECTRIC PACK, BOTH ELECTRIC MIRRORS AND WINDOWS, CD , A/C, PAS, ABS, MOMO STEERING WHEEL, WELL MAINTAINED, DRIVES AND LOOKS SUPERB, FULL SERVICE HISTORY, HPI CLEAR £1295
  13. ..what about the difference between a mk1 sport (2000) and a the mk2 sport (2002)..other than the looks which you either like or dont, is the newer car any better or more reliable etc..
  14. Thanks for that..I found one for 1000 and asked the questions you suggested...the answers as you say probably reflect the price ! - any rust,accident damage No rust, but someone has driven it into something on the front right. Bonnet is a bit creased. It's only cosmetic. The whole car is a bit ropey in terms of bodywork, not rust just dents and dings. Looks good but it's a well used car. - any head gasket problems, idle issues Doesn't seem to be, no. It's lovely on the motorway, quick and economical. - is the clutch on the way out Doesn't seem to be? - any service history, oil change frequency FSH up to 80k or so, after that it's been owned by a mechanic, he's done all the servicing on it though obviously I have no proof of this. Looking at the overall condition of the car, other than the dents and dings, i'd say it had been pretty well cared for during it's life. - timing belt last changed Not sure. - condition of tyres,discs,pads All seem fine. Brakes ok, goes in a straight line, brakes in a straight line.
