Questions for Outback owners

Ask the People Who Own One:

2005 - 2012 Subaru Outback
NoWittyNameHere

I currently own a 2001 BMW 740i and am looking to make a switch to a Subaru. What has been your longterm repair and maintenence been like since you bought it? I know that these should be far less expensive than a BMW, but I do see some expensive costs. I have done a lot of work on my own car, including engine repair, suspension and breaks. How easy is it to work on these?

I\'m new here, so I\'m not sure if I am asking this in the right area.

Thanks in advance.

You might want to brush on Subaru oil consumption class action suit. Not unless you like tearing engines down and replacing piston rings.

This era also had head gasket problems too.
