#11267 of 11746 1993 Subaru legacy...
Jul 10, 2006 (8:46 am)
My car (1993 Subabru Legact Sedan) was running fine and then once I parked, the car died, and will not start again, it sounds like it's not getting gas and I replaced the fuel filter, but it's still just grinding. It should have enough gas, and has enough oil, and the battery has full power. I don't know what's wrong and I am scared that it will cost a fortune to find out!

My daughter stepped on the cup holder in the back of our '03 Legacy spec. ed. wagon. The dealer says it'll cost 100.00 to replace. Any where on line you recommend for spare parts that might cost me less?

Try subaruparts.com. They are a dealer out of Tacoma, WA which does a lot of on-line business. Rob M.

John, it might be worth your while to check auto wreckers in your area as well. I'm sure it's a part you could replace yourself, and it's likely common on all Legacy wagons (and maybe sedans) of that generation. Hope this helps.

#11274 of 11746 newer 2005-06 standard vs 2004 35th Anniversary edition
Jul 16, 2006 (8:23 am)
I am trying to decide on a subaru for ~20K and it may sound strange, but right now my choice is between newer 2005-06 standard and 2004 35th Anniversary edition. Both cars are used with low (~10k) miles on it. I know that std one is 4 cyl vs H6 in 2004 model, and my initial choice was hands down 6 cyl model (I am driving v6 accord now and I got used to some power in engine). I did test drive 2002 4 cyl outback and it didn't feel much underpowered, but not sure if I can trust these short test drives.
Anyway after reading these forums I got impression that 2005 models have a lot improvements over prev years including more efficient engine and auto-manual transmission and thought I should consider getting newer model instead of H6 engine. Main reasons for going with 4 cyl seem tobe: ability to manual shift eliminates underpowered question, better mpg, more warranty left with newer year.
Or am I just confused and 35th edition model is way better and clean choice? Any suggestions?
Please help to choose.

For only a bit more than $20k, you could probably get a new base model OB or Legacy after rebates.

Yeah, I'd shop for a new 2.5i SE model, those are very well priced. Low $19k range for a sedan, low $20s for a wagon.
