I just bought a 2006 Outback with 146K miles. The previous owner was an avid kayaker and put miles on it furiously until he died tragically in an accident on his favorite river. I plan to use it as my next hang glider carrier and general errand getter - replacing the far more spartan 1994 Toyota no-frills 2WD pickup. But will be putting miles on it at a much lower rate. The other difference is the previous owner relegated all service to a dealership. Me, I'll be tackling maintenance and every repair I can myself. The last "pancake engine" car I owned was a '70 VW beetle, so the complexity of this car looks daunting.

I look forward to lots of useful advice here.
