Sally Subaru #5 And Stuck in the 90s...
Sure there are things about Subarus that are truths... if it's a 2.5 and yours hasn't blown a head gasket... it will. (best to wait to buy one that's been there and done that). At the first signs of bubbled paint on the rear quarter panel, get the strut towers patched - sealed and get rid of the rust... .or quickly watch the rear end rust to pieces. Your rear wheel bearings will fail, plan on it. I'm watching the throat on the gas tank... one day... it's going to go... been there done that too. Otherwise... you've got yourself a sweet ride... Change oil regularly... and you'll be driving your sooby for a long long time.
Beware of the headgasket
When I bought my 1999 Subaru (with only 70,000 miles) all my friends talked about how reliable they are and how great they are in the snow. But no one mentioned the common headgasket problem. Subarus are infamous for their head gasket problems in the 2.5L engines. My car was fine for the first week or so after buying it. Then it started overheating and I had to regularly add coolant even though there were no leaks. After investigating, I've determined it is the headgasket. This will cost me a minimum of $1,000. If you find that you are losing coolant through your coolant reserve tank, chances are exhaust it building up pressure in your radiator causing the coolant to back up into the reserve
Highly Recommended
I live in a rural hilly area. Had BIG problems in the snow with a pickup. Bought my Subaru, and now I offer folks stranded in the ditches with 4x4 pickups a ride into town. Get 22mpg in town, 29mpg cruising at 70 (both with aircon on). Have had zero problems of any sort at 48,000 miles. Local Subaru workshop has been spot-on with what little they've had to do. Sons (8&10) love being seen cruising around in sporty styled car.
