    Hi there,
    Cindy in Norfolk, Va.
    I am really interested in getting the older outback wagons...
    Preferably the ll bean h6.
    I have become cross eyed doing my homework reading about 2.5 and head gaskets vs h6 and their issues.
    Sooooooooo
    If you fix the 2.5 with sun star gaskets, timing belt, water pump, new radiator, belts etc...are you going to have the HG issue again????
    And can you tell me a good year for the 2.5 and H6......

    I found an 07 ll bean with 163,000 1 owner but no real history on car fax of any work or how it was Maintained. Small little car dealer.
    It's clean, drove ok, exterior nice.....worth a pre inspection????
    What would need to be done realistically with these miles..?????
    To many miles?
    Not in a hurry to purchase....

    Thank you,
    Cindy
    Norfolk, Va.

    If the HG replacement is done properly it should be good for the life of the car. My car had no service records and I made the mistake of not getting it inspected and it ended up needing the whole deal (HG, timing kit, spark plugs etc). The upside to that is now I know exactly what has been done to it and it should be problem-free for a while but I will not make that mistake again. Definitely get it inspected by a competent mechanic.

    Hard to say if 163k miles is too much without knowing anything else about the car. It can definitely last a long time it was kept properly

    You do know this is a Minnesota group, right?

    As far as radiator replacement specifically, if it's not leaking why bother?

    I was just casually shopping for pretty much the same things you're comparing. Something to consider is the H6 requires premium fuel and sounds like it doesn't really get great mileage either. I'm sure the added power is a nice benefit, tho.

    Unless something is wrong with the radiator there's no reason to replace it.

    Not sure what it would all cost where you are. Probably at least $2,500-$3,000 if you're doing everything and with good parts

    I may not know a lot about Subarus, but I do know how to read......Yes, I know this is a Minnesota site. I'm trying to gather as much info from as many places as possible to properly make a decision when I'm ready. Not only can I read, but smart too!
    And thank you, any info is much appreciated!

    Thanks Niz, that's what I'm looking for is a ballpark price to do it all. That way I know what I can afford to spend on the car it's self. Hopefully armed with facts about HG issues and faulty design, maybe a little something off the top. Because I'll bet most, not all, but most being sold with 70-120,000 have weeping, or leaking HG!!!!!!! I guess as far as the radiator, I've read about doing it while doing it all as they are going to go at done point. Just start everything a new!
    Thank you

    Not to be a complete douche, I was going to ask the same question Krazy did about you realizing this is a Subaru forum in Minnesota, but now that I know you can read, but smart too (glad you didn't use multiple exclamation points there because they would be unwarranted), I'm glad I didn't ask.

    I'm also a little puzzled as to why someone with above average intelligence would think that a Minnesota forum member would have any sort of clue as to what automotive services cost in Virginia. But, maybe I not smart too!!!!!!!!!!

    Well douche bag it's quite obvious you are not interested in discussing Subaru's, but you do real well at being a jerk!!!!!!!! And pillboy says it all....a few too many prescription drugs???????? Hummmmm????????!!!
    Sadly, this is a sexest forum....it's obvious many men have a problem with women in your man cave.
    No worries, y'all need some southern warmth to thaw your ugly attitude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Good day

    I'm guessing she meant sexiest, so Ima taking that compliment.

    After that reply I had to go back to the original post and reread it for the clues she was female...I kinda just skimmed over the name on my first read. Guess I don't know how to read.

    I'm kind of reminded of some of the bat-****-crazy patients from my past that were noncompliant with their mental health medications. Not enough drugs is sometimes worse than too many. My recommendation is buy the damn car (without an inspection), and move to a state where recreational weed is legal and just chill out.

    Wow. Real quick to play the sexism card, aren't you Cindy?

    I'm pretty sure that people get called out around here for being obnoxious regardless of gender.

    The ez30d (H6) in a 2007 is a great motor. I'd take that over the n/a ej25 any day unless gas mileage was the top priority.

    More than one poster in this thread, other than the OP, is a girl or at least a girly man. I'm not telling who is who.

    Also: Subscribed for sexey times.

    It isn't that we don't want women in our man cave, as there are plenty of them in this cave. It's that we don't want stupid women in our cave, or stupid men for that matter.
    I like to think I've been a solid, equal opportunity monster over the years, I think I've been pretty fair with telling stupid people to pound as much sand as their little feet can pound. In fact, in my nearly 14 years on this site, I can't think of a single woman that I've had to tell to get lost.

    So, with equal opportunity in mind, and to not be labelled a 'sexest', I'm going to break my long running streak of putting the boots to dumbass males, and allow this to be my first time telling a knuckledragger with a vagina to get ****ing lost.

    You came here and asked a stupid question about Virginia service pricing from a forum full of Minnesotans. And someone pointed out the absurdity. Then you got the female version of butt-hurt about it (vag-hurt?) and lashed out and accused us of being "sexest." What color is the sky in your world? Oh, wait, is asking you about the color of the sky being "sexest?" I will admit, I'm not on the up and up about what is considered offensive to people based on their various combinations of X and Y chromasomes. If something I've said thus far has offended you as a woman for some reason, let me know so I can continue not giving a single **** about it, since my focus here is on the fact that you're being an excessively thin-skinned dip**** about this entire situation, and attributing someone's commentary on your misdirected line of questioning to "being sexest."

    If communicating with people that have personalities that differ from the ones you scrawled in crayon in your padded playpen is difficult for you, DreamHost has some nice web-hosting packages that are affordable, and you can one-click-install a PHPBB forum instance...not that you'd need to since you're so ****ing smart, you can focus all that brain power on setting up your own forum. Call it VirginaSubaruRainbowFunZoneNoPenisesAllowed.com or something. And then you can spend all day telling all the people who join your new site how ****ing smart you are, about how your vagina makes all criticism of you a gender-based attack, and the intricacies of Virginia auto-mechanic service pricing.

    Or you can stick around here for longer than 30 minutes, learn some things about Subarus, meet some really nice folks who have made this a thriving and inclusive car enthusiast community for a decade and a half, and stop being an internet martyr about every perceived slight to your femininity. Your call.

    All caps is for dullards and Trump voters, which makes a venn diagram that looks like a total eclipse. I type with my finger tips like an upright and evolved human being, with developed fine motor skills that allow me to keep the saliva from falling out of my mouth when I breathe and speak (most of the time).

    I should hurry and snap it up before miss smarty-pants grabs it and makes the most successful subaru discussion forum ever. Gotta get in on the ground floor if you want to rake in all the scratch.

    FYI, for the visiting geniuses, "Scratch" is a slang term for currency, or "money," please don't misconstrue it as derogatory slang for the vagina.

    That was a long time ago, good memory! Also, my feelings towards F&F franchise haven't changed. Though it seems now they have moved on to raping the corpse of Paul Walker instead of import car-enthusiasts.
