Asked by Monkeywench Dec 20, 2019 at 06:33 PM about the 2011 Subaru Tribeca

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have oil leaks in my engine on my 2011 Subaru
Tribeca V6. The dealer wants $5000 to fix it. A
friend of mine has offered me her 08 outback with
a new short block Engine. Can they be swapped

was discontinued in 2012, there are different engines that year, look for similarities and differences~ same year might be okay review my data at wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subaru_Tribeca


5 grand for oil leaks? Get a quote from an independent shop instead of the stealership!

I went to an independent shop, who said I should go to a dealership. Going to try another independent shop tomorrow!
