Timing chain for sure.. Have the trans. checked out prior to purchase. I'd consider doing the 90K mile tune up done if it hasn't been done....I had my 60K done 4 years and 10K miles late with no problems. Just had the bucks to do it. I have an 89 Subie that I's only got 75K miles on it and the timing chain was changed out at 70K because I wanted to keep driving it forever...These cars will go anywhere for a long time.

Did you end up getting the car? If so, how's everything going? I'm considering by the exact same car, and will be using it to drive cross country for fun.
