Ok found this Subaru down the road from me Carpoint When talking to the guy he said he wants rid of it quickly, so might be able to get him down to 6,000. Also he said he has spent $2,500 on getting it up to scratch, which included a new clutch. Only problem I have with it is the amount of k's it has done, anyone on here have some advice on older Subaru's?
Oh and I will be upgrading from a '97 Mazda 323 which I am trying to sell.
Ok. He said he is selling it for his sister who just got divorced and wants the car gone. And it has been sitting on the nature strip of his house for atleast 3 months without moving. But from everyones experience Subaru motors don't go much past 300K without troubles? Thanks for the info, helps me look for something else.
Hoping to get a little bit more for the 323 since it has only 140K on it. But I have been looking around the $6,000 mark for a new car, which isn't leaving me much.
My main problem at the moment is that the 323 only has one baby seat support spot, and it is in the middle. So slightly annoying to get a baby in an out of. And with an expanding family, we want 2 cars that can take 2 children under 3.
Edit: And by the way, our first family car is a 00 model BMW 318i. So an inexpensive second car to fix is a must.
Yeah starting to look that direction, only problem I can see is boot space. Need a good size boot for a prams, but having never looked at either I can't comment on how big they are, just what they look like from outside.
