2001 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon w/Weather Package (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Bought this car new. Now have 118,000 miles and it needs its 3rd head gasket. First went at 36,000 miles, 2nd at 83,000 miles. In cold weather (10 degrees or less) gas lines at fuel pump condense, allowing fuel to vaporize into the engine compartment. Smells like you are riding in the gas tank. If I could have afforded to dump this car earlier I would have. Lots of other smaller problems. Seems to go through tires very quickly.

Best Features

Great on ice and in snow. Well built rack system for carrying cargo and bikes.

Worst Features

Subaru, own up to your defects and fix these cars. Have your customer support actually support customers, rather than wasting their time.
