Oil leaking from the valve covers may not be a good sign. Its hard to say if that is a good buy or not. Offer 500 lol

Stay away from that car unless when you break a windshield you want to pay more for a new one than you did for the entire car.

advice? don't buy it! these cars have a horrible rep. car was just built very poorly. i've read about constanst problems with the suspension and ball joints. tire wear is another biggie. if you want something cheap and reliable maybe an older honda might do the trick...

Contact Rico at Import Solutions in Missoula. Rico races, or at least used to race, a normally aspirated Legacy wagon that kicked ass in autocross events (gave the STi's all they could handle). He's a trained Subaru Factory mechanic who went off on his own. His wife has a really sweet SVX.

Leaking valve covers means nothing. It's easy to replace the valve cover gaskets. If it's leaking oil into the plugs, then you'll need to change the plug boots and wires, too. The gaskets harden over time, and have to be replaced, that's all. About $100-125 for parts, including plugs. I just did it on a friend's Legacy.

Personally, I'd love to have an SVX, especially an automatic. 200K is a lot of miles, though. Especially if they are hard Wyoming miles.
