1999 Subaru Outback 2.5 from North America
Costing more money to repair than the car is worth
I have owned this car since 1999, and have had a few problems with it.
The transmission is the major problem at the moment. I reverse out of driveway and then put car in drive; it stalls, and then after a brief delay, finally goes into drive. I have it at the shop at this time, $2,300 dollars to rebuild the transmission. I am not happy knowing that this is a common problem, and yet I still have to spend money that I do not have to fix it.
I also have a problem with a scraping noise coming from the rear of vehicle. I have had it at the shop on at least three occasions, and although the mechanics can hear the noise, they cannot locate it, to repair. This includes the Subaru dealership. I am not a happy customer.
I also have the issue of an oil leak; that of course is going to cost even more money to repair.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
