I'm considering buying a used Subaru. Probably an outback, legacy, or forrester. In doing some research I've found a lot of people complain about engine problems (i.e. blown head gaskets, water pumps, as well as electrical and other problems). I definately want a dependable car I can rely on for many years to come. Whats the scope on Subaru reliability? Thanks for any help.

bought my first legacy in 91, replaced engine at 146,000 (cracked head) rebuild tranny at 194,000. I love this car. Bought my wife a new imprezza in 2000 she drives 72 miles a day. put 110,000 on it NEVER a problem. bought her another new one in 2003. Has 145,000 now, replaced altenator. We live in a area of lots of snow and ice I wouldn't be comfortable with all the driving my wife does if she didn't have a Subaru.
