I have driven my Outback 353,000km now and have never had a break-down. It has never failed to start and gives me very acceptable gpm. It is a strong car and holds the road very well. The vehicle goes anywhere a typical 4x4 can go and does it without effort. The only quirk I have is an oil leak somewhere, probably the head gasket, that is causing some smell. I will have this looked at in the near future. The body is in terrific shape with only a small spot on the drivers side rear wheel well edge. When it is washed it looks like new and could go in a show room. I will definitely buy Subaru again if this one ever quits. So far so good. I had a mechanical done and it passed with flying colors.
Heated wipers, seats and mirrors. We live in the north.
Because head cover leaks are well known to Subarus, the manufacturer should help defray costs for current owners who want to keep their cars.
