Started Out Great Then Money Pit
By Dave In Denver on
2002 Subaru Outback VDC AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This was our second outback. We bought a 3.0h6 vdc used. It was the regional Subaru rep's car and came fully loaded with everything including the McIntosh stereo. For 4 years we hauled 2 kids and a 80 lb dog all over Colorado. The car was great until it hit 100,000 miles. After that it was nonstop maintenance. A big problem was the car burned through brakes. Then the car began leaking oil. Lots of oil! The biggest problem was when we would go up a hill the vdc off light would come on then the engine would overheat. Two Subaru dealers could not find the problem. They overhauled the entire cooling system at great expense. Head gaskets were fine. We finally gave up and traded it in.
Favorite Features
Incredible handling in bad weather. Good power vs. gas mileage. Great cargo storage especially with a cargo topper on roof. McIntosh stereo! Very safe vehicle
Suggested Improvements
Improve engine reliability Needs beefier brakes
