Vehicle: 2001 Subaru Legacy GT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Our Subaru has over 30k miles and stillloving it. We were debating between thewagon or a minivan to haul our 3 kids. We also looked at the Passat wagon.The Passat rode smoother, but the price was way too high for comparable features. We are very satisfied withour choice- great price for what youget, decent gas mileage (compared to theminivan anyway), and enough room for the kids and their stuff- can fit threechild seats across the back row. Recommend a car top carrier for longertrips. Pros: Reliable, safe, fun to drive, andthe awd can't be beat for winter driving(live in WI)Cons: Interior quality could beimproved, gas mileage seems low for a vehicle its size, needs more pep.

Help! I have a 2001 Subaru Outback. When I drive at highway speeds, my car will begin to shake. I can hear the engine working harder and it just rides rough in general. It comes on slowly and goes?...

It sounds possibly like a burned out resistor that is not in the circuit while the starter runs, but IS in the circuit when you release the starter switch. I have seen this happen to older Chrysler ?...
