I want t love my Subaru Outback But ..,. by MrTibs on 05/05/2013. Trim: 2005 Subaru Outback 2.5 i Wagon, Owned 6 years.

Pros: All wheel drive system is the best. The Outback feels screwed into the ground on snow and wet roads. The Tiptronic automatic transmission is very smooth and fun to drive, The vehicle handles well on all road conditions that northern New England dishes out.
Cons: There have been too many maintenance issues: drivers side axle replaced, 2 rear wheel bearings, 1 front wheel bearing, oil pan rusted out and replaced, valve cover gaskets replaced, both cat. converters failed and needed replacement. Oxygen sensors and a rear muffler replace as well. Add these unexpected maintenance costs to the scheduled maintenance and you better be a rich man to drive this car. The vehicle is very tough on tires. I got 3 years on factory original Brigestones and 3 years on replacement Bridgstones. Running on Michelin now with 720 tread life-we will see. In addition, all the exterior light bulbs keep burning out. So many times that now I can now replace them blindfolded.
Overall review: It's a car I love to drive but from a maintenance perspective I am afraid to own. Please see my maintenance comments on the "Cons:" section.
