Hey All,
Been following the forum for a few weeks now. Former owner of a 91 Legacy wagon. Sold it when it was still new (260,000 miles) and have been regretting not buying another. Sold it to a guy that works with me and it had over 600,000 on it before it died. How stupid could I have been. Replaced it with a 02 Ford Exploder. Boy, what a POS that has been. Fixing to buy another Subaru and never drive anything but a Subaru for the rest of my life.:banana:
I refuse to buy another new vehicle again, so I will be looking for a low mileage, mid 90s Outback wagon. Looking forward to modding it and hanging out with all of you. Got a line on 2 Brats out west of Fort Worth that I will also be checking out in the next few weeks. I want one, but if the guy will sell, I will post the info on the forum.
Bob

stich to the 97 or prior legacy as the later models were prone to heag gasket problems.

but then again the later models with problematic mothrs will swap in a n older 2.2 plug and play. suppose you can find a newer one with a bad motor for a good price and find a junker 2.2 that still has life in it.

I say go with a BRAT.:brow: But my opinion is biased. No matter what you choose I hope it treats you well and you have fun with it.

'98 and later Outbacks are roomier. By this time they should have had the headgaskets done along with the timing belts. We just got a '98 and love it.

I do not understand why anyone would swap a 2.2 for a 2.5 though. We now have 3 2.5's in our family and have had zero problems!
