2000 Subaru Outback 4dr Wagon AWD
Purchased new, now have 77K on it. I love Subarus, and this one has its highs and one low. Snow and wet conditions cannot stop this car. I have tried to lose traction (all season radial tires, not snow rated) and can't. Love the reliability except for the head gasket that needed replacing - the car was past warranty (uh-oh), yet Subaru covered it (phew). No other repair issues, brakes are still fine, even. 20/27 MPG, even with Thule box on top.
AWD, few repair issues, decent gas mileage.
Subaru should equal quality - fix the head gasket issue. Road noise from frameless doors is obnoxious. No outside temp. gauge for a ski car? Crazy.
