Hey guys and gals! It's been awhile since last I was here, I went awhile without a car (subways, city living, etc) and now I'm coming into possession of a 2004 Outback wagon 4-cyl/5-speed with 120K. It's a one-owner car from the ski-regions of Vermont. I've spoken to the dealer, gave him the VIN and they said the owner was religious about everything that ever came up. They did a head gasket ($1400.00, was that one or both?)`, an AC compressor and belt, timing belt at 56K (why so soon?), other than that, they were religious about scheduled oil changes, maintenance and tune up intervals, all performed exactly according to the factory plan. He sees no clutch replacement and while I can make a clutch last a long time, when do clutches go in these and what would that cost? Any trouble areas I should anticipate? I have a sister that swears by these things, but from the look of some of the forums, they can have their troubles, too. The dealer went through the service history over the phone and said if I can get this car it's a definite "BUY" based on the service record and diligence of the owner. I figure the gas mileage is 20-27, not great, but with AWD, what can you do, right? Meanwhile, I've always been a Hyundai Elantra/Accent guy, since 1986 anyway, so this is a new adventure. I guess I'm just wondering what surprises are in store for me. Thanks one and all!
