I heard a Subaru cambelt job can cost you way in excess of $1000 as they also replace the idler wheels etc.

Another good place to look for cars is Turners Auctions. I could have got a car just like mine for half the price.  :'( :tickedoff: They have different classes of vehicles through the week.

But as with all purchases, it is best to go through them beforehand. You can even just jump in and test drive at Turners just remember to return the car to the same spot afterwards.  ;)

@ Hill ,glad you learning all the ins and outs about car buying when we arrive you better show Troy where the best deals are as I HATE   :tickedoff: having to go test drive cars.
he always asks what I think of the car we test drive and how it drives and I always say "like a car" everytime I have chosen a car I like (cause its pretty) he changes it and buys what he wanted in the first place  :tickedoff: but I must admit cause he knows alot about fixing cars he is normally right about the choice (but I wont be telling him that!  >:D )
