Wondering if anyone has any good info on how long the clutch in an 06 Legacy should be expected to last. I'm looking at possibly purchasing one with 89k miles and the original clutch, and my offer might be influenced by how much longer I can expect the clutch to last. Car's in great shape, doesnt appear to have ever been abused. Thanks in advance!

Does it feel like it's slipping at all?

There are so many variables in clutch life that it's hard to say based on mileage alone.

Thanks for the replies. Found this site: http://www.cars101.com/subaru/subaru...000Maintenance

So looks like timing belt is coming up at 105k. Any easy way to check on how the head gaskets are doing? I know there have been issues with them in 2.5s. About what % of that generation Legacy are affected?

Sorry for all the newbie questions.

I would do the timing belt before 100k. Too many have had a tensioner or bearing give up and ruin the top end. At the least, pulling the cover and inspecting is a good idea.

Look for oil/sooty residue on the underside of the head/crankcase joint where the gasket is. Keep in mind that the valve cover gaskets leak and can drip down and back making the head gasket area oily.
