2001 Subaru Impreza L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


I wish I could write a great review of the Three Subi’s I’ve owned however, per my experience I’m not able to.
Subaru has major major major design, engineering, assembly, and supplier parts quality issues.
Here is my experience.
1999 Outback about 40,000 miles head gaskets blow.
Several thousand for a new engine (yea sometimes the heads and block will warp when the head gaskets blow) car totaled.
2001 about 500 miles head gaskets blow.
Another engine about 40,000 miles spun bearing.
Run only Mobil 1 every 3-5,000 miles oil change. Car totaled.
1997 outback 20 miles yep 20 miles head gaskets blow.
All Three were the EJ25 4 cyl engine.

Best Features

All wheel drive.

Worst Features

Bring back the unique styling of the 2002 to 2005. All the current models say "me to"... Greatly improve your design, engineering, and supplier parts quality.
