Subaru Outback 2003 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Subaru Outback here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Should I buy a 2003 - 2007 Outback?
Generally, the Outback is a good solid car, well designed and built. My only concern is the age of the cars you’re looking at. While the Outback is a good car all cars deteriorate as they age, so it’s vital when buying an old car to have it thoroughly checked by a mechanic who knows his way round the brand. It’s also best to look for a car that hasn’t been used off-road.
WE ASKED Subaru to comment: ``Subaru Australia is concerned to hear of this customer's problem. ``We are confident it is not common and would like the opportunity to inspect the vehicle further via the customer's local Subaru dealer, where an in-depth report can be submitted to Subaru Australia for consideration. ``Subaru Australia has exceptionally strong product guidelines and any manufacturing defects found are covered under warranty (within the warranty period). ``We have an out-of-warranty `goodwill' arrangement where, on meeting certain criteria, manufacturing defects can be claimed out of the warranty period.'' There you are, Michael. Take your car back to your dealer, have them inspect it and report back to Subaru.
THE side support of the driver's seat wears fastest on most cars because the driver tends to slide their backside across it when getting in and out. I'm not aware of any particular problem with the Subaru trim, but you seem to be seeing wear far worse than I'd normally expect.
