Scooby-doos are really good cars, in general. Both of those years had many tech bulletins issued, but....most cars these days have quite a few even when brand new, so.... I would go for the older one, personally. Fewer miles is good, but that's not really the whole story. Ya gotta figure in what condition both are in, regardless of the miles. I've seen fairly new vehicles(2013-2015) that are just completely trashed inside, partly due to crappy materials to start with, but mostly due to idjit owners. Interiors tell a LOT about how the vehicle is taken care of. All that being said, either one, if in good condition overall, would be a good buy, but, if they both look comparable, condition-wise, I would have to lean toward the older model, for the same money.

We had 2004 Outback for just over 10 years. Put ~150k on it. 95% of the maintenance that I could not do was done by the dealer we bought it from. Even with that it needed a head gasket at ~140k. So look for the maintenance records to see if the schedule that Subaru recommends for things was followed. It isn't going to guarantee that it will not break but at least you'll see that the car was taken care of. I'm with the others - all things equal go for the lower miles.
