This is my third Subaru and it will be my last.
Pros: Fantastic AWD System, will flat out go in the snow !
Good gas mileage for a AWD, 27.5 highway, 23 city
Easy to work on. Heated Windshield
Cons: Cheap interior, Sub Standard factory Stereo System,
Head Gasket leaks ! All 3 of my Outbacks have had head gasket issues, once they start leaking, they drip on the exhaust and the oil vapors come right in the fresh air ducts.
If you buy one you WILL be eventually be putting head gaskets on it.
At 120K miles, my steering rack is leaking oil bad, one head gasket is leaking and the cat converters are shot ($1860 at Subaru)
I have a neighbor with a 2011 Outback that has oil leaks, BEWARE !
AWD, Cold Weather Package
Redesign the Boxer engine to fix the Oil leaks, Upgrade the cheesy, plastic interior
