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

Review

I bought my outback with 73K on it, It now has 140K. It is our grocery getter child transporter. Does great in the snow. I can get about 26-28 mpg city/Hwy. It does leak oil, i fear may be the dreaded Subaru head gasket. Thought it went out about 5K ago but it was the water pump. Shop said heads were fine. Interior is nice I do have leather package but not the limited. good comfort for long trips. I would buy another with out question. Only other issues are some electrical in steering column that makes turn signal sound for no reason, cruise control stopped working and horn no longer works. Also have to replace 4 tires at a time due to AWD.

Favorite Features

AWD, snow/bad weather handling. Good on gas. Always goes.

Suggested Improvements

head gaskets, less oil on electrical components causing false current connections.
