I don't know anything about this car in particular, but as a GT model it should have a 2.5 in it. the non-GT's were 2.2L.  It doesn't have a hood scoop, so it's either not a GT or the owner swapped a base model hood onto it (accident repair?).

Overall, the 2.5L cars' biggest weakness was headgasket failure, but changing out coolant and using the subaru coolant additive seemed to bring them up to a more 'normal' level of reliability.  Rust in the rear wheelwells can happen, but not as bad as the 90's legacies.  Here's a general info page on these cars:

Some questions for you to ask the seller:
-Has the headgasket or engine been replaced?
-When was the timing belt done?
-Basically 'is it a GT or not"?

They had dropped the hood scoop for that gen gt.  Cars101 shows it missing on the 01 page.  I'm more surprised to not see rust by the rear wheelwell.

That can't be a NY car.  How the heck are the rear 1/4s and overall car that clean for almost 200k miles?
