I may have been unlucky but this thing was hardly reliable
By jamespeaut on
Vehicle
2003 Subaru Outback Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
Bought car used at 140k (as such this could reflect the previous owner's handling of it.) Week 1: Head Gasket, Oxygen filter, timing belt, Radiator leak Week 4: New Tires, New brakes, CV Joints, Bent Axis joint, oil leak Current: Week 8: Headlight electrical system failure. Paid: 4,500 for car. Repair bill: 5000 I may have bought a bum car but I'm really not impressed with the outback--It's hardly been reliable or cost effective. Even as a temporary commuter car (I bicycle for most of my work) it's cost me a chunk of change. I really wish I had stuck with my old Honda CRV Cons: Gas mileage in cities loud noise from exterior Bumpy ride From what I've experienced, unreliable
Favorite Features

I paid $7345 with $4000 down for mine. It had 82,000 miles, clean interior, some dents on the door, and within the first week of ownership, I paid $2098 for repairs. Next month, we're looking at another $2000 to get the car running the way I want. The car, despite having low miles and clean interior, had a lot of cheap aftermarket parts, probably a parent-owned car given to a child. The good news is, I'll keep the car til the engine kills over (which I think it has another 100k in it)
