It's a common occurrence: A visitor to our fair city finds herself driving down Broadway behind a Subaru Outback. But wait, there's one to the right, one to the left, two behind her, and, yes, one in the oncoming lane. No, you haven't just entered a Subaru parade, you're just in Missoula, and in Missoula we're driving Outbacks. And if Missoula's unofficial pace car is the Outback, our official pit crew is the master mechanics at Kent Bros. Automotive. Steve Bierwag and his team of Subie superstars are standing by to fix the inevitable, from blown head gaskets to cranky windows. But plan your breakdowns strategically, because these Subaru gods rest on Fridays.
