I bought a used Subaru Forrester out of pocket, for it to immediately need repairs which would have added up around $2300 (for new struts, calipers, rotor, brake pads, front passenger low arm control). If I knew I was going to have to pay that much more I would had gotten a newer model with less mileage.
Make sure you test your vehicle on the bigger highways that go up to 75 MPH. Much of the issues that car had were not noticeable going below 60 MPH.
I had to wait a few weeks to get the struts replaced which they went 50/50 with me which did not even cover the issue that I was having. They also knew there were other issues, that were stated, but they only “fixed one things” I took it back and wanted me to pay about $1100 to get the things fixed that should have been fixed the first time. I have been unable to drive much outside the area and had to cancel trips and rely on others for transportation for almost two months. I have not been impressed, it has been a huge waste of my time and money and will be servicing my vehicle elsewhere.
