  1. Gen 2: 2000-2004
    In 2015, I bought a used Subaru Outback Wagon nearing 115,000 miles for about $5K. It's 2022, and it's at 150,000 miles. I'm the second owner of the car and in 7 years I've put only 35K miles on it. I knew that a 15 year old car (at the time of purchase) would be needing some replacements/...
  2. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    I have a 2009 outback with 173,941 miles on it. A dealership has told me that all of the following repairs need to happen, and I'm wondering whether it sounds crazy to do $6676 of repairs on a car that carmax is offering me $2800 for? I'm pretty inclined to just sell it and get into something...

    Bought my 2019 outbackfrom Carmax knowing it had these issues. Wondering if its work 950$ to pay an autobody repair place to fix it. 1. Door does not sit flush on driver side. Water/ice gets through. (My most likely guess is previous owner locked keys in car and had someone pry open to unlock)...

  10. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hey there. I recently purchased a 2012 Subaru Forester from a dealer 3 weeks ago with 96000 miles on it. All was well until yesterday I sped up to pass someone on the highway and the check engine light, cruise control light and off road light all came on at the same time. Plugged in my OBD2...

    Had my Outback for about a month and just left some hairline scratches in my infotainment trying to vacuum it (stupid, I know). They are driving me NUTS!!!!! I'm afraid that putting any cleaners on it will only make it worse. Obviously, I wouldn't use an abrasive. I read meguiars 17 clear...

    I was driving at high altitudes after refueling and when trying to restart my car, it wouldn't start easily. Now, I need to spray starter fluid to get it running and it occasionally loses power when accelerating. When the engine warms up, the exhaust begins to pop and doesnt sound normal...
