2001 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

We spent $15k on a used Outback two years ago. The thought was to pay more up front and spend less on maintenance. Wrong! We just spent $4k in the last two weeks on repairs: $1500 for a new clutch and $2400 to replace the head gaskets (the car has 88,000 miles). As well as $300 in towing fees because it died in a remote spot. The car is now worth about $7k according to KBB, so all in all we've probably spent $20k on a car that didn't even make it to a 100,000 miles without over $5k in maintenance costs. I've owned many other, lower-cost vehicles that ran much stronger and longer than the Outback. I would not recommend Subaru products to anyone.
