Question about Subaru Outback
Subaru has common problem with overheat due to head gasket leak. as long as it doesn't have a problem with Overheat, it will run fine. If there is a problem with overheat, then you need a head gasket replacement. The cost is somewhere around $900 due to other things associated resurface block and valves job.
Depend on the year, you can check Blue book used car on the model you want to have a range of price, then take a look of the one you intend to buy then deduct it for what you think is fair.
The year is making a diiference: For example The DOHC ( dual over head cam), used in the Outbacks from 96/97 to 99 famous for internal head gasket leaks. Thee leaks only opened up when the engine was hot, letting bubbles of exhaust enter the coolant. These bubbles impede the flow of coolant, create hot spots, and eventually will cause the car to overheat) It is difficult to fine this until the car had a blown head gasket. After 99 Subaru designs with a new SOHC system (single overhead cam) and it remains until today. However it is still famous for external leaks (that is, they leaked coolant out of the engine and onto the outside of the block).
Therefore you need to check head gasket when you buy it.
The manual vs. standard price is much different only on new carsr depended on trim model. But it should not be much difference in used car since the value now is depend on the mileage providing the same engine on the car ( ex 4 cylinders). You can use plus or minus $200 is the max. Hope this can help.
