Years vs. miles on a car

Is it better to buy a newer car with more miles or an older one with less miles. I am only talking about a 2 year difference. I am looking at a 2000 Subaru outback with 94K versus a 2002 Outback with 130K. Is two years older enough to make the parts worn out more or technology of the parts worse on a the older model?
