2008 Subaru Outback 2.5I Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


2008 outback we bought new when our 1998 outback head gaskets failed at 135000 miles. We were unsure if another Subaru was in our future but after driving other alternatives we returned to this manufacturer.
Very stable sure footed in even the worst conditions and very easy to drive. We are impressed with the design and body integrity.
update 3/28/16 107000 miles same engine and transmission. suspension bushings are a common failure but major components great. Some interior panels develop waves and pockets that look like the thin foam under the imitation leather. Recall on air bags just completed. Letter from manufacturer stated dashboard may develop symptoms similar to mentioned in detail before about interior panels.
