Hey guys, im looking into buying a subaru Outback and need some advice. I will be using it as a daily, and will be taking it for several skiing trips throughout the season, also next summer I will likely be using it to tow a small boat. At the moment two best deals I can get that i like the idea of (through contacts with dealers) are:
2005 Outback 3.0R. pearl white ext. black leather int. 73000 kms. $9500
2012 Outback 2.5l. pearl white ext. black cloth int. 97000 kms. $12000
both are fresh imports.
I guess my questions are, is the 2.5l engine okay? (with cambelt issues etc.) Will fuel on the 3.0 cost me a significant amount more? Is the price difference I would be paying for the newer model worth it? Any advice on any of these questions or more info would be massively appreciated, Cheers!
