Hi , I plan to sell my Outback because I use it less often than my toyota Van (for work purposes)and want to save of for a Diesel when they come out in 2010.
I live in Ft. Lauderdale where you don't see many Subarus. When I was in Ashville, NC about 1/3 of every car on the road was not only a subaru OUTBACK, it was the same color as mine. Quite an unusual experience. Wondered if I should try to sell it up there...and how having never sold one by myself OR out of state. Is it worth it?
Car is in excellant shape. Brand new Kuhmo tires, leather, 10 spker upgraded wonderful radio,ONLY 19,000 miles. I would supply any records. so, ...
what are your best results in selling online; which sites etc.?

Are the radiator and heater hoses good?
Check the axle boots for cracks or tears and replace them ASAP to prevent CV joint damage.
If the inspection didn't include it, check the rubber brake lines for cracks or bulges and replace as needed, and in any case bleed the old fluid out of the brake system. If you have the timing belt done have them do the water pump at the same time (which will also get you new coolant).

There will be more buyers, but there also might be more sellers.
Can't hurt to try, I suppose.
If you sell it in Florida, put something like "Great traction in the rain" in the ad.

HI. I HAVE DONE THE BASIC PART CHANGES, GASKETS, ALT, STARTER, ETC. HOWEVER I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW SHOULD I BE AFRAID TO ATTEMPT CHANGING THE TIMING BELT. MY RESEARCH INDICATES THAT IT WOULD BE WELL WORTH IT. HOWEVER I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT A MECHANIC WOULD CHARGE, MUCH LESS BEING ABLE TO PAY IT. IT'S NOT THAT I'M AFRAID BECAUSE I LOVE THE CHALLENGE AND I DON'T USUALLY BACK DOWN. I JUST DON'T WANT TO BITE OFF MORE THAN I CAN CHEW AS THIS IS MY ONLY VEHICLE WHICH I LOVE. THANK YOU.
#11664 of 11746 1997 outback headlight issue
May 06, 2008 (8:10 am)
I have a problem. The headlights won't work on my outback, but the high-beams do. All fuses are good, haven't tried replacing the headlight relays yet, but I don't really know if that's the problem.
The switch is on for the lights, running lights go on, fog lights go on, and the high beams work, but the regular headlights won't come on. I don't get anything from jiggling the switch or moving wires around by the fuse box either...
Please help, I'm very confused, and I really don't want to drive at night without headlights (otherwise I'll be blinding everyone with the brights).

Sounds like the bulbs are blown. The high beams are seperate, so it looks like just the low beams blew out. Try new bulbs.

I'll try that out. I had always assumed low and high beams were on the same bulb, just different power levels or something... haha...
Seemed strange that they both went out at once, if that's the case... They're relatively new. About 3 -5 months old... But, I think it happened around the time that I was checking fuses to make sure nothing was blown out, so maybe I messed something up doing that causing them both to blow out or something...
Anyway, I'll try new bulbs and see if that does it. I really hope that's all it is.

In some cases it is the same bulb, but with 2 filaments. Other Subarus have 2 seperate bulbs.
It's common for both sides to go at roughly the same time. I had a set that blew within a week of each other after 8 years or so.

Usually, both lights do not go out at once.
Have you ever noticed how many cars are driving around with only one operational light? In general, one headlight gives enough light to drive by, and it is often difficult to tell (from the inside of the car) that a light has burned out. So you drive around unaware of the problem until the second one burns out. It is difficult to miss that event.
If both lights did burn out simultaneously, it is probably due to a larger electrical issue.
Are you aware that the Outback has a third pair of light (fog lights mounted down low)? I almost never use them, but they can be called into service to act as low-beams. They only work when you are using the low-beams
