2000 Subaru Outback Limited 4dr Sedan AWD


Bought car new in 2000. Have 203k miles Passed down to college daughter. We had an infrequent problem with intermittent stalling and CEL. This had been occurring since new but could not solve the issue. Codes indicated MAP Sensor and replaced with used one for $50. Did NOT solve problem. Did an ECM reprogram for $90 at dealership and fixed problem! We do regular maint and car has been great. Great value, pretty good gas mileage but most importantly safe and reliable. Desirable combination. Would recommend you find a well kept one and go buy it!

Best Features

Enjoy premium sound with sub woofer. Road steering feel is good. Easy tp get comfortable in front seats - tight for rear

Worst Features

Brakes are a bit light - not a problem once you adjust
