Just bought a 2001 Outback.  Probably overpaid at 7000 but 1 owner car, fairly low miles and clean as can be.  Looks to be amazingly easy to work on, which counts for a lot.  I've been reading about head gasket problems with these motors - how much truth to this?  Even so, doesn't look to be too difficult to replace if they do go bad.   Hoping for reliability above all.  I have the Carfax report on it - no problems reported.  How much can this be trusted?  FYI, the newest car I ever owned before was a 77 TransAm.

Welcome to the USMB!

 

You may want to post in the new gen forum asking about the head gaskets.  You may get more responses over there.
