I bought a 1990 Subaru Loyale for three years and fell in love with it even though it doesn't have enough power to get out of its own way and I have to turn the air conditioning off to get on the freeway. I love the look of the Outback and have kept my eye out for one. Well, I got a 1996 Outback this week that I bought from a privite owner who bought it new and took great care of it. He gave me a folder with everything that was ever done to the car. I got it home and noticed that it was leaking oil pretty good but not to fret, the records shows that in March he had the timing belts changed as well as the crank seal. As I was looking through this folder I also noticed that he took it back in May because of leaking oil and they replaced the crank seal. I took it to the dealership and now they are going to put another crank seal in it and of course, free of charge. Is this a common problem with the Outback? I mentioned putting a speedy sleeve on it to the service man and he didn't know what I was talking about.
