A 100K Shay
By jake3_14 on
1997 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Wagon AWD
In the poem "The 100-Year Shay," a legendary horse-drawn sled performs perfectly for a century, then disintegrates. Similarly, my Outback Sport performed flawlessly for 100K miles, then required replacement of ALL the major seals, the steering rack, and cam cover caps, repainting and clearcoating of the hood scoop and vents, in addition to the normal 100K service, to the tune of $2650, half the Edmunds private-party resale value. Shame on Subaru.
Handling on curves, ventilation system - A/C is great!
A cooler-running engine, seals that need staggered replacement, better gas mileage (23-25 combined city/hwy).
