    Bought a 98 Outback new. Would never buy another one. At 173k you're buying someone else's headache.

    I’m a Subaru fan too. There are some years and maybe engine types that have issues. Some develop a piston clatter at higher mileage. I think Peak has mentioned before about possible leaking headgaskets too. Some also have 2 catalytic converters that are pricey. Do the research and keep some extra $ in the bank.

    I want to like them...I'm a fan of the semi-goofy Tribeca...which I don't even know if they still produce. But man you could fit a log of people and/or stuff in one of those. Also, not the easiest engines to work on if your a DIY guy
