I had a suburu 20 years back..lots of maintenance, BUT...In my trips down Baja and other az backroads in jeeps you will see two other kinds of vehicles in some crazy places...old style vw bugs/busses and modern suburus. Pick ups and old suburbans of course but you didn't ask about those.....fwiw

I've had two back to back Subaru Outbacks that I bought new.Traded the last one in on the Jeep. Out of the 20+ cars I've owned, they were by far the BEST. Never had a single problem with either of them. That was a total of 6 years with ZERO garage time. They were fun to drive, and handled the snow like nobody else. When the Jeep gets paid off I will be getting another Subie as a DD.

I have had 4. A 2006, a 2007, a 2014 and a 2020. The Outback is very comfortable - though the 2020 model is much better for large/tall folks, but I am guessing not an issue for you here. GREAT snow or bad weather car. Going skiing - no problem.

That's why I still have my Outback. Never gave me any headache on the road, throughout the years I've been using it.

We bought a 2012 Outback (4 cyl., auto trans.), new, for my wife. It's at about 75,000 miles, now. Other than usual maintenance items, it has needed virtually no repairs. I replaced the original tires only at last Winter's beginning (and they could could have run longer). The only recurring issue has been headlamp bulbs' failures. Oh, and the rear-view camera only lasted a few years. It is garaged and waxed regularly, the kids have been gone, so it looks practically new. No oil usage or leaks. We usually use the Subaru (28-29 MPG) rather than the Jeep for long trips due to fuel consumption and frankly, ride quality. And as someone else said, it does well in snow - even with non-aggressive tires, in our case.

When we were shopping, I considered - and regret not buying - the six cylinder option, at a penalty of $1000 and the loss of one MPG. That package also featured larger wheels (& brakes?), beefier suspension, a "real" transmission with gears, and a timing CHAIN. Soon, we will be looking at replacing this car's timing belt, at about $1000... (sigh).

We have been pleased with the Outback.
