Big mistake buying this 2001 Subaru L.L. Bean Edition
By louisville1 on

Vehicle

2001 Subaru Outback L.L. Bean Edition AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Nothing but problems with this car and expensive to fix. I wish I had never seen it for sale just a year ago when we paid $7,000 and have added another $4,000 in repairs. Engine lights, overheating, noises, bearings, misfiring, and on and on. It was over heating and the repair shop installed a new radiator for $500 and then two days later the car over heats and blew out the head gaskets. We're selling this as JUNK, which is what it is. We were always Toyota people but shifted to Subaru when Toyota put profits ahead of customer safety and screwed their customers. Now what do we do?

Favorite Features

Loved the heated seats and CD player.

Suggested Improvements

Impossible to fix yourself, even spark plugs are impossible. Frequent Engine Service lights are tripped and so forth.
