Joined: 7/4/2004Would you buy a 2009 a car with 80,000 miles on it.
Its a Suburau Outback 2.5i Special Edition it has 80000 looks to be in good shape. Runs great, They want 17300 out the door
I guess I should add suburaus that tend to be in that price range tend to be the 2006-2007 outbacks with 50k-70k miles on them.
Joined: 8/17/2004Not me.That mileage for say a 2.5 -3 year old car is really high. You’re talking 30-35K miles a year, average is 12-15K. Price seems a little steep to me too.
Other thing at least around here is not many people work on Subaru’s, so you might want to look into that as well because at some point you will need work done.How are you living your Dash?thats a lot of miles for a car thats been on the road for only a couple of years. if you could get hold of the previous owner and find out what kind of maintenance was done like regular oil changes, that would help.maybe the dealer has a service record of that car.

Joined: 10/14/2006I said yes, but only because it is a Subaru. They are 300,000 mile cars…
Joined: 4/18/2007Seems a bit steep.
Joined: 1/10/2006Not sure. I probably wouldn’t unless you knew the owner, their driving habits, how they maintained the vehicle…..etc.
I have an issue with buying a new car from the dealer if it has more than 50miles on it………..I guess I just don’t trust……. (must be from the job)

Joined: 11/1/2005Man, thats a TON of miles for a car that is “almost” 2 years old. I bought my Xterra with 72,000 miles, but it was an 2004, and was $7,000 less than that Subaru. Price seems a little steep too.

Joined: 2/2/2005I said no but I have seen more and more used cars with way over 100,000 miles on them. I guess it comes down to how good they took care of them. remember The pup gets the last vote on your new ride
Joined: 2/22/2005I said Yes, My Truck (an 06 Dodge Diesel) had 73K on the Ticker , If It was a gas truck,I wouldn’t have bought it though.. Just turned 100K on it today , and it runs even better than the day I got it…
An 09 with those miles ,It HAS to be highway miles, But like said Before,It’s a subaru,They run forever…And also,You can get a new car for just a few Thousand More,.. And Also ,,with some Maufacturers, You can get zero % financing…

Exactly my feelings on it.I said yes as 80,000 is no big deal if well maintained. LOF every 3 to 4 grand, or 6,000 with something like Mobil 1.
But I also would not pay more than five or six for it either. It was most likely a company car or used for work and had been wrote off by the owner and anything he sells it for is pocket cash. I foe sure want records from all service work and the very least.Ron /////// Archery and Fly fishing
