    Hi all, Just looking for some expert advice on maintience. I am preparing to move from my current job placement in CA to FL which is about a 2700 mile road trip. My 2012 3.6R outback just hit 140k miles the other week. Since I have owned it I have already had all four shocks and struts replaced...

    Hi all, Got a new to me 2007 Outback 2.5i last august and it’s been great so far. It came with the timing belt replaced at 90k mi and the HGs replaced at 105k mi, so I felt pretty good about getting it. However, I’ve been trigger-happy with repairs (took it in because there’s a creak/clunk when...

    Hey everyone! I’ve had my 07 outback limited for a few years now and like the title says it has a brand new engine. Now that’s kind of a long story but we put a brand new crate motor in it back in June at 188,180 miles. The car now has 196,134, so almost 8000 miles in 7 months (I drive a lot). 3...

    Hey there, I am a new 2016 Outback owner, and am trying to do some work on my car. I plan to replace all four of my struts, my front-right tie-rod end, and my rear brakes. If you have space I could do this kinda of work, I can even pay to use the space. If you know of such a space, or you have...
  7. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I'm a firm believer in maintenance. Always have been. In my younger days I did much of my own. As I've aged I've used multiple shops. Dealers, ma and pa mechanic shops, and even franchised auto maintain ace shops like Grease Monkey. I like to talk to the mechanics working on my vehicles to...
