The 3.6 is the updated version of the 3.3 that has been in use for the Tribeca for a few year I believe. All in all the older 3.0's are dang near bulletproof, I have no reason to expect different from the 3.6. Even better now that they do not require premium fuel for optimal performance.
Speaking of performance, there is little in the H6 aftermarket area. But the amount of horsepower and torque are about what my old Ford V8 had, the OB just weighs a little more and has less aggressive gearing in the 5 speed auto.
2003 Outback wagon: "Kaylee". 144,000 and counting.
Basics: Quaker State Ultimate Durability 5W30, PureOne oil filter, Fram air filter, Valvoline Maxlife Dex/Merc ATF, Mobil 1 75W90, Michelin Primacy MXV4.
Mods: 2004 Forester XT shift knob, Fumoto oil drain valve, Phillips VisionPlus low beams, Phillips HIR1 high beam upgrade, Nokya Hyper Yellow 2500K fog lights.
Also: More rust than I care to think about.
