    I just gotta tell you, I LOVE my subaru! I had a 98 legacy wagon that had a rear main seal leak and smoked all the time, but she never let me down, even when I was going to grooming school and driving an hour each way for a month. After 2 years I decided I wanted something newer and nicer(got my tax return lol) so I got a 2000 outback wagon with heated seats, and a dvd player. I've had her for 2 years now with very little problems. My boyfriend has a 1995 legacy, I think we got her about 3 years ago now and he also have very few problems despite her age. The biggest plus, the wagons can hold LOTS of horse stuff!! Lol Mine often looks like a tack shop on wheels

    I, too, love my Subaru Outback, 2000. But, I would recommend either getting a pre 2000 or a post 2006. The model that is my year have a problem with the head gasket. About 70% of them , upon reaching 130,000 miles or more, have to have the headgastket replaced. That costs money.
    I did it, becuase in every other respect, I love my Subaru. I have 172,000 miles now.

    My first car (in 1996) was a 1986 Ford escort wagon white exterior and red interior with more rust than paint left on it. Cassette tape, no a/c, no power anything. That thing took me everywhere. And I mean EVERYWHERE. I was doing competitive kayaking and I would throw my boat up on top and go down roads that were barely even there. I loved that thing.

    Keep in mind that looks and extras mean nothing. If it runs and you can afford it, it is worth it. Plus, it gives the car character.

    Mine also had the head gasket replaced before I bought the car, previous owner has all the service records, from the looks of them that was the only problem.
