2000 Subaru Outback Limited 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

Overall same issues most have had with this vehicle. Head gasket went at 90k, check engine light always coming on. Oxygen sensor, at 165k tensioner on timing belt went out. Basically had to rebuild the engine. New alternator and ac. Have had several thousand $$ worth of repairs. A lot of wind noise on the hwy. On the plus side, awd is awesome, only limited by the clearance. Really like the look of the car. I loved the vehicles performance overall but disappointed with the amt of $$ I had to shell out on repairs. Wish Subaru would fix some of the mechanical issues as I probably will not buy another Subaru unless some assurance that these common problems have been resolved.

Best Features

AWD and exterior design. Heated seats.

Worst Features

Correct the head gasket problem. My mechanic could not believe how thin the head gasket was. Better seals on the door and window to cut down on hwy noise
