Should I buy a used Subaru?

I'm new to Subarus, but I'm thinking of buying used one. They seem light weight and perfect for getting through the ice and snow. I'm a single person with no kids and normally buy used subcompact Toyotas to save money. I'm moving to a colder climate with more ice and snow than I'm used to, and I think I should have all-wheel drive.

Do many smaller Subarus have the ability to take down the back seat? I'd like to put cross-country skiis in my car, but if I couldn't put my skiis in the car, that's not a deal breaker. Storage capacity is not that big of a deal.

Do Subarus have a little higher suspension than other sedans? I'm concerned about getting through the snow.

My current car would get nothing as a used car if I sold it. But it is a reliable car, so I wonder if I should just plan around the weather and stay in a great deal during the winter. After two or three years, the car will be easy to discard (e.g., it will need $2,000 of repairs).

I could spend $12,000 cash. I'd rather postpone it or pay less than that. I like fuel efficiency and low cost maintenance. I just like reliable cars to get me from point A to point B. Any recommendations?

Yes, you should buy it! Subaru is a nice car! I suggest you look it on the internet for used Subaru's.

Buying a used Subaru is a wise choice. Its a good car to have.
Buy before buying always do a through inspection by an Subaru auto mechanic/specialist. After the inspection by qualified technicians take a clean bill of health. Also before buying ensure the car has had all recalls performed and take it for a test drive. Subarus do make more noise than the average car, so a taking the car to a mechanic to be inspected before buying it is a good idea. Also spot check the struts for leaks and CV boots for any tears.

Check for oil/coolant seepage around the heads, gray or dirty coolant in the reservoir, and gray or watery oil on the dipstick. Check whether there are any manual transmission or automatic transmission specific problems.
