This just showed up in town. I could pop a Subaru engine in it and be set! Like it.
Ford flex is so cool. I'm looking to one.
Pretty rare sight.
Never had any problems with head gaskets. I have been around Subaru’s for along time. Seen old ones with over 300k miles. Still running. I bought a high mileage Forester years ago sold it with close t 150k on it. Only thing it needed was a new water pump. Just make sure to use synthetic oil once you hit above 100k miles my 2010 Forester is getting up there in miles and no problems.
A large percentage of them (head gaskets) leak oil and most people who are not diligent about maintenance (or observant) will not notice unless it’s leaking on the exhaust and even then may not notice or care.
You're one of the lucky ones. Google it. Notorious for it.
Subies ared great, but do have the well-documented
True, unfortunately. Turbo models had better headgaskets. I loved my '04 turbo Forester.
Bought a 1998 Outback new. It was a great car until 90k head gasket. I maintained it well too. Not really a huge deal. Guy who specialized in Subarus came and towed it, fixed it and returned it for $1100.
This is why we now own an 18 touring 3.6R, not that we will ever reach higher mileage it’s 16 months old now with 2700 miles
Not the typical surf vehicle, but I've been very pleased with an inherited 2005 Lexus RX330. After coming off a '91 Accord, I really appreciate the quiet, super comfortable ride. It's as reliable as they come (basically a dressed up Highlander) and can fit multiple boards inside, including my 9'8 log. I bet a 10'er would fit just as easily.
