Texas Style: The Subaru Outback
A Texas-Sized Helping of the Subaru Outback
The Subaru Outback. A lot can be said of this workhorse of a car.
We get a lot of these each year at Public Auto Auctions and they always arrive well-loved. Anybody who buys a Subaru Outback works ‘em, and they were built to work.
A beach trip to Corpus Cristi, a cross-country road trip, or just commuting the daily grind on 35. It don’t matter; the Outback is reliable. 🌊 🛣️🏕️
While Subaru’s aren’t the most popular car in Texas, they have a lot to offer.
A rugged all-wheel drive, spacious interior, and a lot of durability under the hood, this is the story of a vehicle built for those who dare to wander and embrace the open road. 🌄🚗
🗓️ Model Years:
Among the used Subaru Outback models, a few stand out as the most sought after and trusted options.
The fifth-generation Outback models, 2015-2017, garnered significant attention for improved interior quality, advanced safety features, and efficient powertrains.
Another notable mention goes to the sixth-generation, 2020-2022 Subaru Outback’s, which offered a larger infotainment screen, a turbocharged engine option, and a spacious cabin, making it a preferred choice for many.
For those who appreciate a balance of performance and practicality, the Subaru Outback XT trims, which feature turbocharged engines, have become increasingly popular.
But what about a truly used Subaru Outback, which is more likely to show up here at Public Auto Auctions? Well, it’s hard to go wrong with the 2012-2013 models.
And if your budget is very tight, definitely consider a 2003, 2004, 2007, 2008, or 2009 model if you see them at the auction lot. The 2nd generation facelift 2003-2004 Outback’s are hitting 20-years-old and proving they still got what it takes.
The 2004 model in particular went through a major redesign, adopting a more robust wagon-style body, distinguishing it from previous iterations. The introduction of the 2.5XT model, equipped with a turbocharged engine, provides a livelier and sportier driving experience. This makes the 2004 Outback an attractive choice for those aiming to balance cost savings and a reliable and more modern design and features.
The 4th generation BR facelift in 2014 is another great choice. Head over to our inventory page and filter by “make”.
You have very good reason to buy a car at auction in Texas.

⚠️ Things to Look out For:
While the Outback has certainly proved its mettle over the years, like any vehicle, it's not entirely without its quirks.
Some common issues that have been reported in older models include
- head gasket problems, which may result in oil leaks,
- or engine issues.

However, Subaru has addressed many of these issues in newer models, and diligent maintenance can help mitigate these concerns.
