2004 Subaru Impreza Wagon 2.5 fuel injected non-turbo from North America
Head gasket leaking at 100,000 miles.
Right rear CVs had to be replaced at 60,000 miles.
Rusted oil pan is about to fall off.
Complete exhaust system, including CATS had to be replaced, along with O2 sensors.
Timing belt and water pump will have to be replaced shortly.
I am surprised about the lack of negative comments on this car. Buyer beware, check out Subaru forums or put Subaru Head Gasket in the search engine.
This car is a piece of junk. Bought it new with regular maintenance as per manual. Should have been recalls, but for some reason Subaru gets away with it on the head gasket issue.
A very expensive car to maintain. Exhaust system had to be replaced from the CATS back with all O2 sensors, a very expensive repair.
Oil pan is rusted out. Who the hell every heard of a rusted out oil pan on an 04 car?
Right rear CV joints had to be replaced at 60,000 miles. Unbelievable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sounds like this car was driven severely by a prior owner!

Sounds like you always went to the dealer, or, you just got ripped off by whoever did the work.
Nothing wrong with the car, more like the way it was treated.
Hence why there are so many positive reviews.
