Hi-
Since the new 2.5 Turbo has been on the market for a while, I thought I would round up impressions/opinions/observations/experiences with:
(A) Reliability-particularly in real-world driving. Stop and go, or long idles a problem?
(B) Fuel-91 Octane (premium) required?
© Oil change intervals?
(D) Observed stress on other components, e.g. gaskets, hoses, engine components subjected to extreme heat?

If this sort of review is published elsewhere in forum, please just respond w/post numbers to earlier notes.

Thanks all,
Outback Fan


2000 Outback 2.5 5speed, 90k miles. Aiming for 200k.

I don't own one, but recently read in the latest automobile magazine on their long term Legacy 2.5 GT Turbo. They were very impressed with how it handled all their abuse and never let them down.
