Have it inspected by a certified mechanic before considering purchase! Buying used is controlled by CONDITION!!!!

Options? Either you do or you don't.
The sever year old Subi could still have its integrity, Lynn, if the seller can show you proof it has be regularly and properly serviced and maintained throughout the years.
Can the provide proof? If so, it has very good potential. If they can't, it would be high risk.

You have TWO options... Buy it, or Don't.
98,000 miles on a 7-year-old car works out to 14,000 miles per year, which is on the high end of average for a family sedan in the United States. Subaru cars are well built, safe and reliable and will last a long time if properly maintained.
As always, have your own mechanic inspect the car BEFORE you commit to buying it.

As mentioned by others, a lower mileage car is often a better bet. But they cost more.
Subarus are not bad just not as popular as other imports like Toyota, Honda, Mazda & Hyundai. Any car from those 5 are likely to be good bets IF you take a long test drive, have a mechanic check it and have realistic expectations.

Does not look like a good idea to me.

I`d never buy a car with that much mileage.

That is a high mileage. She will need a new engine in a year.
