Not worth it if someone takes the SD card out

So this car was sold to my father back in 2015 and the battery went flat now it says the SD card is missing and that actually stops the whole stereo and reverse camera from working completely.
This SD card is at a cost of $650 to replace it.
The SD card is only for the navigation but it actually stops everything. Show details

Expecting 400+ ks

The car was left to me by my son who purchased a later model outback. It had just over 200k on the clock. All services were done throughout its life. It’s now showing 285k and still running well. First clutch replacement and struts and wheel bearings now. ( country car). The thing is still driving very well, everything works as it should. Chilling cold air and toasty heater. Paint is excellent and no rust anywhere. I’m a home mechanic so I will attend to all repairs myself for under $1k. I use it every day short & long trips. Very comfortable car. Roomy. I’m keen on squeezing every k I can out out of it. Simple no fuss car. Love it! Show details ·  1

Head unit failed

Car was bought new in 2015 and no problems until recently when my starlink unit failed. Subaru Australia offered no help saying it was not a known problem but suggest the dealer performs a reboot at a cost of $160. No guarantee it will work and no other offer. Show details ·  5

Great car! Comfortable, fast when need it to be, good looking. Only downside is the head gaskets don't last

I use this car to commute to places, personal use, I use it on average 4 days a week, Its serviced every 5000 km's, no issues except the head gasket. Show details ·  1

Best car I have ever owned

I bought my Subaru Liberty 2010 with 117,00 klm on the clock. It had always been serviced at a Subaru Dealership and still is. The Takata Airbag recall was done as well as the electronic brake recall problem. I drive the car most days. Melbourne trips are a joy to drive in my Subaru. I have now clicked 175,000 and I have not had one single problem in 58,000 klms. Paintwork holding up amazingly well as it is not garaged.
A cut & polish keep it preserved. Love my Subaru! Show details ·  3

Subaru GT Premium Wagon

I purchased new a 2014 gt wagon and still have it. It has been a great little car, now with 95k on it. Everyone that drives it cant believe how well it performs in acceleration and handle. A wee bit noisy with the low profile tyres on rough bitumen. It now steers around the windy roads of tasmania with ease. Service is not expensive and I have not had a mechanical issue yet. In the purple mode overtaking is quick and a lot safer. If I was to worry about what might go first, it would be the clutch as it pulls so hard.
OK these weren't the prettiest, but hey if you want a sleeper you don't want to draw attention.  Show details ·  1

Can’t fault it, great car. Great safety features. Does not lack power. Smooth drive and good visibility

Driving every day to and from work, using highway and freeways normally. Not bad economy. Servicing, average once a year or 12500kms. No issues as yet. For the price there’s good features. Show details ·  1
