Q: I want to know whether to buy a 2014 Subaru Legacy

asked by on

I want to know whether to buy a 2014 Subaru Legacy. I am concerned about the possibility of getting an oil burning car. The car fax shows oil changes are regular intervals of 5000-6000, but one interval recently of just 2500 miles. The car currently has 65000 miles.

My car has 65000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

Actually, if I were you, I'd be glad to see that 2,500 mile oil change. It shows me that the owner is proactive about vehicle maintenance and not that you've got an oil burning car at all. The decision to change oil falls on the owner of the vehicle. There might be some internal monitors and reminder lights that indicate the service is due, but I seriously doubt that is what triggered the 2,500 mile oil change with this car.

If you want to be sure you're not buying a lemon, there is a great service offered by YourMechanic.com called a pre-purchase car inspection, where one of our local ASE certified mechanics will travel to the seller's location to inspect the used car and send the buyer a detailed email report.

Q: I have a z71 that has been using regular oil, can I change to synthetic oil? Is there a benefit?

You can change over to synthetic oil without a problem as long a you still use the recommended weights. The advantage of a synthetic oil is you can extend the oil change about 1500 miles as long as you are...

Q: My Subaru 1998 outback dimming lights didn't work, now won't start.

Hi, thanks for writing in. This is likely a charging system issue. This can happen when the alternator is failing and does not charge the battery properly which is what causes the dimming lights and the non-starting problem. A dead...

Q: is it worth fixing the timing belt and timing pulleys?

If the belt is broken or the engine is noisy and having problem, then no, it probably wouldn't be worth purchasing. For whichever car that you are seriously considering moving forward with, I suggest having a certified mechanic conduct a...
