What do you think? I need advice please.
I am in the market for a Subaru Outback. As of now, I have two options available.
2000 Outback 2.5
$5,600 w/ 3 months warranty
2001 Outback H6 3.0 LL Bean Edition
$5,600 (warranty at additional cost)
Both vehicles are very clean and don't seem to have any problems. Both have a clean history w/ no accidents. The 2.5 may require a timing belt and water pump change whereas the 3.0 will not as it has a chain instead of a belt. I know that timing belts can cost quite a lot to change on an Outback. (Anybody have a guess as to how much?)
Also, from what I understand, the 2.5 models have had problems with head gasket blowing whereas the 3.0 does not.
If anybody could offer some advice, it would be much appreciated. I am leaning towards the 3.0 but the mileage is really quite high so I'm a bit torn. Thanks.
