Great Snow vehicle but MAN the Oil leaks...
By junkyard2 on
Vehicle2005 Subaru Outback 2.5i AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewThis 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 !
Best FeaturesAWD, Cold Weather Package
Worst FeaturesRedesign the Boxer engine to fix the Oil leaks, Upgrade the cheesy, plastic interior
