A Lemon of a Great Car
By husker_soobie on
Vehicle2005 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review4th Soob. Bought it used at 2 yrs old with 40k miles Fast forward 4 yrs now at 100k. The last 2 yrs have been a nightmare. Brakes, headlight bulbs, CV's, spark plugs, axles, 2 Oxygen Sensors (in December '10, failed April '11 - part under warranty-not labor. The car was great to drive in inclement weather, & was a looker, it was a mess under the hood. We've spent $2200 in the last 7 months. Took it in for brakes AGAIN last week only to find out that we had a bad head gasket. We used 3.5 qts of oil in 2000 miles! Estimates $1700, plus impending timing belt, water pump & steering pump $1200 more. Just traded for a new Forester. Praying this one isn't possessed by demons!
Best FeaturesAWD, moonroof, heated seats, upgraded sound system, dual climate control, tons of cargo capacity. Great looks.
Worst FeaturesRevamp Oxygen Sensors, and pay total bill when part fails in less than 3 months. brakes need examined, city gas mileage needs looked at.
