Any thoughts, tips, advice on buying a used 2005 legacy GT with 133k for 8995? What should I look for?

The key! ...Actually, you just need to look at its upkeep, you don't want one that has recently participated in a demo derby. You also don't need one which has never had it oil changed. Other than that the Subaru is rather a very sturdy car. You can easily put another couple hundred thousand miles on her with reasonable care.

From what I've heard, if it hasn't already had a new turbo by this point, it needs one. YMMV.

I just picked up an 05 with 82k and I would have to say that the most important thing when i was looking was just the general maintenance and upkeep. but i kinda gotta agree that at that mileage the turbo is prob on its way out if it hasnt been replaced yet

I can't speak for the car itself, but that seems like a good price-ASSUMING IT HAS HAD NORMAL MAINTENANCE DONE-, considering I picked up a 2003 Outback (non-turbo) with 109k on it for 6250$.
