I don't really know if the outback has a huge problem with head gaskets, but I live near Albany, OR and I see at least one (normally many more) different outbacks of all years. So if I see so many driving around then they can't have too many problems, right?

I used to have a 91 Legacy that had almost 200k on it, and it ran like a top.

It's been sitting outside the office since March. I have to pass it every day on my way to work. Sometimes it glares at me. Sometimes it cries. Sometimes it won't even look at me... "I hauled your rump roast around the state for 3½ years," it says. "Day after day you tried to drive me like Porsche, but I never complained. All I wanted was $600 for a clutch. $600. I wasn't even worth $600 to you? You're a bastard, Alex. I hope your stupid Forester blows a head gasket..."
I wish they'd fix her and get her out of there. It's driving me crazy.

But how long does it last?
My BC7-EJ22-4WD sedan has NEVER left me stranded. Okay, it did need headgaskets at 125Kmiles, but what car doesn't? And I did change the whole exhaust system, but even so, all the repair/maintenance I have done only amount to the first year's depreciation on a brand new car. "Scoobes" has now done 55K miles in two years, and the engine is still strong (125mph strong!) and so what if there is some rust biting at the corners? Living in a city, as I do, body work is not something to be too sensivtive about - new dents appear every day as inept drivers try to park next to me...
Oh, and the newer the car, the less "raw" they seem to be - even Subarus have gone a little soft. The feel of steering, gearshift and pedals is being engineered out of most cars, and it means a dull driving experience.
OLD LEGACIES RULE!
