hi all
i am looking to buy a car(or wagon) for around $9000. I found these two cars

1. 2006 Impreza Wagon 2.5i, 66k miles
2. 2005 Outback Wagon 2.5i, 88k miles

I checked AutoCheck(like CARFAX) for both the vehicles, they are clean titles.

I have a few questions for experienced Subaru users:

I have Head a lot about Head Gasket problem, are these models affected by that.
Which is a more reliable car. I want to drive this for a long time.
Other than the size, does Outback has any other advantages over Impreza.(or otherwise)
Based on the mileage of these vehicles, what expenses should I expect in the near future.

Thanks a lot in advance.
