2001 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I Love my Subaru Outback. I bought it at an auto auction for $1250. due to the last owners beliefs about changing their oil I now have about $3000 all together in the vehicle including purchase price. I do my own labor as I'm slightly mechanically inclined and have a new rear sub frame, complete 3m undercoat to stop rust, and a new 85,000 miles used engine. The 2001 Subaru outback is exceptionally easy to work on by ANYONE. just buy the service manual at any auto parts store and you can do anything on your vehicle. All the sensors that do go bad are located on
top of the engine block, easy. At 213k the tired old engine still pushed my outback to 122mph. The Subaru 2.5 has plenty of power.

Joseph, I loved my Subaru too until I found out my rusted K frame which I'd never had any notice about ( bought car used), failed. Now I am trying to figure out how to fix it. If you can read this would you please email me a bmwmv at verizon dot net I'd really appreciate asking you a few questions as it seems you overcame this. Thanks Beams
