Dude, that's like 3 minutes from my new apartment. Problem is, I'm not exactly an expert on Subarus since I've only had my car for about 2 months and it's my first subie. On the other hand, I'm pretty good at spotting damage on used cars, though I'm certainly not a trained mechanic that could tell you anything about the condition of the internal engine/drivetrain components. You'd have to take it to a mechanic for that. Since you ran a carfax, it's unlikely that it's been in a major accident, so you're probably pretty safe in that regard.

That said, if you just want a second set of eyes to look over the car for problems, I'd be more than happy to show up.

Don't go into the deal with the mentality of really wanting the car. You may later regret purchasing a sketchy car because of your excitement.

To get to east hill plaza, take the GWB to 80 to 380 to 81 to exit 8 (Ithaca). Make a right, go to the end, and turn left onto 79W thru Whitney Point & keep going for another 30 min. As you enter Ithaca, there will be a flashing yellow light (I think) & signs for Cornell & possibly East Hill Plaza. Turn right (either Pine Tree or Judd Falls Rd... can't remember) & go another minute or 2 til you see East Hill Plaza on the right.

Good luck!
