A Thin Line between Love and Hate
By liz on


2002 Subaru Outback Limited AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I knew I wanted my Subaru OUtback Sedan for a while. I was in love with it when I got her. Had to replace brakes and rotors, expensive but routine. Everything was great until 95k mi, had oil leaking everywhere. Subaru did cam seals, valve seals, timing belt (it was leaking on it too) and some other stuff for $650. A month later engine light came on - catalytic conv. Got a 2nd opinion on the cat. conv. and they found a leak in the head gasket. I'm sick to my stomach I love this car...never a problem in bad weather...I don't want to get rid of it but after the reviews idk. I may not be able to afford all the up keep. I would buy a new outback if they came out with a new sedan...without the problems

Best Features

all wheel drive...sporty...handles good...all weather package

Worst Features

Cheaper maintenance... window covers... not too much... I really did love my car but it is a really expensive date!!
