my boyfriend just ran out to do errands, so I am not sure, bu I know I dont have a turbo and it is not a stick, does that help?
Subaru Mechanic: Randall C, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Sorry, It does not. The car either has a V6 engine OR a 4 cylinder engine. Need to know which when you can. Thanks

You can order them from a dealer or just have them look up all the correct parts...the manuals are quite expensive

how expensive, we want a paper repair manual 2008 outback 2.5 i Limited but would also buy elctronically if we must
Subaru Mechanic: wrxteck, Subaru Technician replied 8 years ago
You could try using Google and search for them online..I've seen a few sites that people will post manuals online for free...all manuals which is about 8 books will be a couple hundred dollars..
