I am a new owner of a 2000 outback. What are some of the common problems I can expect to find in car this old.

Use subaru only parts for radiator cap, thermostat, ignition coil, spark plug wires. Use NGK spark plugs.
This is just a short list off the top of my head... I'm sure the resident Gen2 braintrust will add to this list.

I would not throw out a subaru OEM coil, as a wear part until I was sure it was busted giving the problem,.. and I had another OEM coil on in its place
.(some here have 200,000 mile cars and the original coil is still on it).

and its something to nab on a part out or at a pick and pull. mine says "subaru" stamped in small letters right on the front. (aftermarkets can be just plain junk to cause unexplained misfires).
