I just bought a 2005 Outback XT. I have some maintenance records, but from what I have it's not clear whether the previous owners followed the currently recommended 3750mi OCI.

I'm a little concerned about the screen in the "banjo bolt" and the related turbo failure. Not so worried about the turbo itself, but the damage that it could cause to everything else if it goes.

There's also a catalyst in the "up pipe" for this year that can take-out the turbo, which again can take out the motor.

Are there any good aftermarket warranties / insurance policies for these issues?

I got mine with the dealership I bought the car from. I would be very weary of any high mileage XT without at least a 20-30k extended warranty. Sounds like you might not need it, but if you do...
