What engine is this? A 2.5 or 3.0? Only the 2.5 has a timing belt. If the timing belt has not been replaced, yes, you should have this done immediately. If it were me, I wouldn't be driving it all until the belt is replaced. While they're doing that, have them check the head gaskets as well. These are common issues on the 2.5 engines.Good day all,
I just inherited an Outback 2008 with 125,000miles on it. I have heard that I should have the Timeing belt replace right away. Is this true?? Do they break frequently? Any and all advice welcome..
Thanks in advance
So, you should have some kind of access to its maintenance history...? Get as much of it as you can acquire (receipts, invoices, accessory manuals, etc), and go through it to see what major work has been done. Record all the significant stuff like fluid changes, spark plugs, belts, alignments, brake pads, tires, etc for future reference.I just inherited an Outback 2008 with 125,000miles on it.
