Question about 1998 Subaru Legacy
A seller wants $3100 for a 1998 subaru Legacy wagon ....But says the clutch slips in secound gear...I believe the clutch needs replaced..ASKING SHOULD I EVEN CONSIDER BUYING AND ASKING FOR LESS, LIKE SAY $2700 AND FIXX THE CLUTCH OR LOOK AT OTHER VEHICLES?!?
I think your best option is to ask if the owner will bring it to a shop of your choice to have it thoroughly inspected. An honest approach is always the best for all parties involved. Depending where you are purchasing a car, a 98 legacy with a manual gearbox is much more rare than an automatic. Use your mechanic's report as a basis for negotiation if this is the car you really want to purchase. The clutch parts will alone cost $300 and plan on an additional $100 to machine the flywheel. This, with anything else a trusted eye sees in need of repair, is the wisest way to move forward. Good luck.

Ive had my mechanic look at the car, and he is exceptionally reliable, so I trust his estimate.
with my supplying the clutch kit, it still will cost upwards of $425.00 in labor, which includes resurfacing the flywheel, replacing internal components as well as resurfacing and replacing the main seal. the clutch I bought is a stage 1 performance clutch @ $200.00 so in total look to spend a bare minimum of $650.oo
