My '96 Subaru w/ 108,000 miles and has had the following major fixes:
Replaced timing belt
Replaced rear struts/shocks
Otherwise - it is running strong and I expect it to for some time.

This is about the "cheapest" thing I've been able to find in my area ( Dallas/FtW).

I like to look at cars.com for price comparison.
You can compare the Subaru to other similar vehicles in other areas of the country. I have noticed that the Subarus are cheaper on the east coast and higher up here in the rockies.
If you are not tall - I'm 6'2" - then the regualar legacy is often times cheaper.
Best of luck.

It looks like the price is a pretty good one coming from a dealer. And Carfax didn't turn up any reported problems or accidents.
Skitown - do you think a 6'4" guy could be comfortable in it with 2 kiddos in the back seat? He's been driving my 1992 Nissan Sentra 4dr and his knees are up around his ears because of having a child's car seat right behind him.

I am a bit cramped when I drive, but it is only noticible when I ride in a different car: Explorer, Mini-vans, larger pick up trucks, ets.
In Colorado - there are Subaru Outbacks at every corner and in every parking lot. They have an excellent reputation here. Good milage and with snow tires, excellent in the snow.

Also it has been my personal experience that the outback is low on the list of cars police like to pull over... I've never been pulled nor have I ever seen another outback getting stopped.
One thing you might want to do is replace the 18mm rear sway bar with a 20mm or an adjustable swaybar. It will improve handling quite a bit for about $100.
