Do you ever gaze into the distance at the gorgeous, jagged mountains reaching for the heavens and think to yourself “man, I want to climb those in my car”? Do you ever stare longingly at the beautiful vistas and seemingly endless waterfalls that adorn the calendar on your wall and think “man, I wish I was there so I could drive my car up those”? Do you ever find yourself longing for adventure, watching Lord of the Rings and thinking “man, I want to drive my car up the side of Mount Doom”? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, this Subaru might just be the perfect car for you.
Note: A $125.00 document processing fee will be charged to all buyers. This fee is not negotiable, and will be added to the final purchase price. See more information below.
That’s not to say that this Outback is a “perfect” car. It’s not. As a testament to its age, the wheels are showing some corrosion, the trim strips on the corner windows are a bit flaky, and there is a cluster of frankly bewildering dimples on the dash pad, above the glove box. If you’re the type to believe a car can have character, then this car certainly fits the description.
Character alone does not a great car make, however, and this Outback comes packing plenty more. Beefy Yokohamas, chunkier than Campbell’s soup, are ready to scratch and claw their way to glorious victory across the most inhospitable tundras (or the grocery store or whatever). Heated seats nail the juggernaut one-two punch of being both heated and seats. The 2.5L boxer engine and 4EAT transmission are as solid and dependable as an M1 Abrams.
(NOTE: I have no idea how dependable an M1 Abrams actually is. If you’re more well-versed in military equipment than I am, and know something about the Abrams that I do not, substitute “M1 Abrams” for “something really dependable.”)
Just as important as what’s there, is what’s missing: rust. A Subaru of this vintage with fully-intact quarter panels is as easy to find as an early-90s Civic with an exhaust smaller than a Folger’s can, but here we are.
This car been through trials and tribulations, no doubt: the gauge cluster was replaced at 130,000 miles. A new front clip had to be surgically installed after a collision in 2014, granting it a reconstructed title. But the car persevered, and it came out stronger on the other side.
Yes, this Outback has had its setbacks (haven’t we all?), but it’s back. It’s tired of staring at those mountains in the distance, those waterfalls on the calendars, and it’s ready to get out there and drive over top of them. It’s sick and tired of watching Samwise and Frodo stumble blindly towards Mordor. It’s ready to show them how much better life would be if they had a Subaru.
(NOTE: Don’t actually drive over a waterfall. This is a terrible idea and is generally frowned upon by the National Wilderness Preservation System, Carwrex Preowned & Rebuilt Autos, and Subaru’s internal combustion engines.)
