Disregard I read your post under high mileage CVT. Sounds like you got some good miles out of your 2 trans before they went out.
Yeah, 261k then about 170k. Unless trans price comes down, or service becomes available with reasonable cost, I think the next time trans goes will end of life for this car. Guessing it might come up short of 700k.

2010 3.6r limited w/ Nav package. 160k miles, I am the 3rd owner of a neglected car and I'm almost done getting it up to my family's standard.

Runs great and shifts smooth, engine weeps oil, largest weep from drivers side upper side of head gasket and from the rear of the upper oil pan. Only uses about 400ml of oil every 2500kms.very impressed with the awd system and the handling considering the ground clearance

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling.... Keep them doggies rolling...... 233,333 miles.... 2000 Subaru Outback EJ251. Sporting fresh gaskets, timing belt, plugs, wires, fluids and all other issues addressed approx 6k miles ago. Runs fantastic. Still can get 29mpg on the hwy if I keep it under 70 without the A/C on. Still working on detailing the interior. Seats and headliner have been steam cleaned.

154k 2011 Outback, previous owner never had the timing belt serviced, chain broke valves bent, I got a deal on a non-running 2011 6 speed outback,

new valves, new head gasket, new water pump, plugs, new coil, new clutch flywheel, brakes, new starter then the center diff went, so new center diff

she is running real well at 154k
Hold on... 2011 never had three timing belt serviced, but then a chain broke? There is no timing chain, is the TIMING BELT. They switched to the timing chain for 2013.
Also, who told you valves were bent? And how did the valves bend? The 2.5 is a zero interference motor. I had abelt fail in my '10 with no damage to anything else....

Someone is offering me a 2011 automatic Outback with 200k miles on it for $3000. It has a new timing belt, water pump, radiator, and battery. Should I get it?
