  1. Hello, I'm thinking of getting a base model 2016 Subaru Legacy, to replace a 8 year old vehicle that is lacking some critical safety factors. I know Subarus have top safety scores, have AWD, and are relatively affordable. But are they generally regarded as good and reliable? It also looks like they're finally trying to cater more to the mainstream market. Both the 2016 Legacy and Outback look really nice inside. How does Subaru rate vs. the other Japanese manufacturers or Korean ones? Any thoughts, experience, and opinions? Any help will be apprecited. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

  2. Hello, Well, after a failed attempt to replace my current car with a lower-milage copy (Old thread), I'm very casually considering making an offer on an older Subaru Legacy GT station wagon. Years ago, when I first bought my current car, a Legacy GT wagon was one of my top choices. This one is somewhat higher milage (around 150K miles) but appears to be well-taken care of, cosmetically in very good shape, recent head gasket replacement and new timing belt, etc. I know that Subarus are usually considered good as far as reliability, but what about once they exceed 150,000 miles? This would likely be a 2nd car… not sure I'd be willing to give up my current BMW wagon for it, but I might. It would get me AWD for the occasions that it would be useful, but more importantly, would get me 250hp AWD with strong aftermarket for amusing myself.. Any help will be apprecited. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References: Professional Video Studio Thank you.
  3. Hello, I've had a 1997 Subaru Legacy L wagon for about 18 months now. Recently it has developed some problems. Like, smoke pouring out of the engine problems.I've found a used Subaru that I really like. (I've found that I really like Subarus.) It's a 2003 Legacy sedan, with about 57K miles on it. Ideally I'd like to get another 80-100K out of it.My mom said something that I thought made no sense at all, but I thought I'd solicit anecdote from the Lounge. She says that most people get rid of Subarus because of problems like I'm experiencing, to which my knee-jerk reaction was "That's retarded." Has anyone had problems buying used Subarus? My car was fine until about 1000 miles ago. Please help I didn't find the right solution from the internet. References: Creative production company Thank you
  4. Hello, I have found a 1998 Subaru Outback with 95K miles on it. It is a 2.5L enginge with a 5 speend manual tranny. I like the car and I need the 4 doors and the wagon capability. AWD might not be that useful in Texas, but I don't plan on driving the car only in Texas. I currently have a 1990 Honda Accord that is looking to have some work done to it (1) timing belt 2) leaking, but not burning, oil 3) dodgy power steering) and it has served me well. It has 220K on it as well. It is also a 2 door which I find very burdensome at times especially when I could greatly use the space of a wagon or 4 doors. I test drove the Outback this past weekend and here is what I noticed:1) The engine has a meatier sound to it than the Accord because of the H4 engine2) The Accord feels much more nimble and easier to steer, but I know these two cars and totally different in design3) I can feel the engine vibration through shifter whereas the Accord is almost perfectly still when driving. THis could be because the Subaru needs a new clutch as well.4) I like the driving stance of the Outback better since it sits higher and is easier to get in and out of.So, there you go. Also, here is the ad from Asking price is $7950 which I think is ridiculous. I'm going to offer him $6000 and start from there. The car needs a new clutch and new rearbrakes well. Can someone with a Carfax account pull the report for me, please? Here is the VIN: 4S3BG6856W6641540 Finally, I have bee doing some research towards the Outback and the engine (EJ25 Phase I) in the car. Apparently, this engine is known for head gasket problems. Has anyone heard about these HG problems? Should this disuade me from purchasing the otherwise car of my dreams? Here is a link to more info about the head gasket problems. And for former and current Outback owners, how do you like them?. Please help I didn't find the right solution from the internet. References: Video production quote Thank you
