Even with the V6 this wagon isn't super
strong, but otherwise I have nothing to
complain about. My only repairs since
purchase at 130,000 have been wear and
tear items (brakes, timing belt, a/c).
Just test-drove a new Outback wagon,
and had a revelation when I got back
into my car. It felt more solid and
comfortable than the brand new Subaru
at 9 years old! Why buy new?
