How long do Outbacks last?
I am very interested in buying a Subaru Outback, but I cannot afford a brand new one. I don't like how the 2000 and newer models look, that and the fact they too are too expensive. I like the 95-99 version, but the ones I have been seeing are rather high in miles, but they fit my price range. I am curious to know how long Outbacks have been known to last before things start breaking down? I have been finding cars around the 80,000 mile range and I am not sure if that is too high or not so bad. I know that if it were a Volvo, the car would just be getting broken in, but I don't know how that translates to a Subaru. I am looking for it to last at least 5 years when I hope to finally be able to get a brand new one, but I need to know if I get one of these higher milage Outbacks I am not wasting my money.
