the cars are pretty solid...
but peek for oil leaks...
heck the hoses, belts....
run the vin at a dealership and check the service/repair history of the car....
drive it and check for broken axles...

other than that?
the cars are pretty much bulletproof... no "real" issues with the 99-01... esp now that the 99's have a meter sensor recall (MAF sensor) and Subaru's getting rid of the apparently faulty parts...

good luck to ya

Listen for noisy wheel bearings. I work with a gal who is having her second wheel bearing replaced on her '00 2.5RS at just under 36K, under warranty of course. She loves the car, btw.
