Head Gasket again!
By countrycousin on
Vehicle
2001 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon w/Weather Package, Child Seat (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
My 01 Outback has now had 3 head gasket failures. The first one was at 130K, second time only after 20K miles. I'm now looking for someone to replace head gaskets again. The car now has total of 70K on the 2nd head gasket. The car has 222K total on it now. There must be something I like about it since I keep fixing it, but issues with quality appeared early on. I have owned 2 other Subaru vehicles, but now will consider other AWD for my next Colorado mountain car.
Favorite Features
Leather Interior has held up well and still looks good.
Suggested Improvements
Get a better gasket on these engines. Use higher quality steel instead of aluminum. Also, the button for heated seats is right where everyone bumps it, so turns on accidently to often. I think this was corrected in the later Subaru.
