A Lesson Learned The Hard Way

Vehicle

2003 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I bought my Outback two years ago with 115,000 miles on it. In over 200 cars that I've owned I've never owned an Outback, but everyone that I talked to that had one loved it. This car ranks as one of the 3 worst cars that I've owned. It's the only car that I've owned that would break just sitting in the driveway. It's been a real money pit. With the chronic head gasket problems I'm surprised that anyone buys these. I sure wish that I had researched it before I bought. This was definately an expensive lesson learned the hard way.

Favorite Features

All wheel drive

Suggested Improvements

Either fix the head gasket problems or guarantee the head gaskets for the life of the vehicle
