|I think all 2004+ models have this issue resolved...|

This is the current logic. My '03 just had them done. '04 was still the BE platform in the U.S., so you'd want an '05 and up to avoid the HG issue with greater certainty.

I thought they made a change to the HG's for 2002...
No proof of that, just what I remember from researching Subi's before we bought ours.

|pretty sure the issue ends with the SOHC engines. the previous DOHC engines had the issues. |
I believe 2000+ Legacies are all SOHC. 1999+ Imprezas are all SOHC.
no idea when Forresters become SOHC.

I'd heard the problem only affected 1996-early 2001 subaru 2.5L engines when researching for buying a Subaru (ended up in a 2.2L) and for a possible Vanagon engine swap. Though, I searched, and can't find the info now.

|'96 is the only year for the 2.2 in the Outback, if you don't count the quasi-Outback '95 model. I didn't even realize that engine was available until I saw one for sale a couple months ago. I believe it was a U.S. model and that the 2.2 never came to Canada in the Outback.|
