1999 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

I bought my Outback Sport with 70k miles. I'm at about 125k now, and besides routine maintenance, the car has not cost me anything. This is exactly why I bought the car. I know that Subaru has addressed in the new OS/WRX all of the issues I had with this one (hp, wheels, etc.). That being said, I realize this car is a '99, and for what it is, I'm totally satisfied. If you don't abuse the car, you won't have any problems. Mileage is decent (mid- 20s). Interior room? I'm a drummer, and I fit my entire kit, plus a passenger! AWD? Put a set of snow tires on in the winter, and the car is unstoppable! Finally, get a set of WRX style wheels for the car, and improve the looks 100%.


Best Features

Versatility; interior room great for small car size; small exterior size great for city driving/parking; capable in ANY weather; ABS.


Worst Features

HP, wheels, cup holders (all of which Subaru has already addressed).

Review

had this car for about 5 months and am
still hooked to it.. 1st AWD car and
WOW FWD SUX.. i love it cuz everyone
else has a civic or a corolla and
such.. this cartruly blows all those
away.. very quick for a H4... its the
most enjoyable subcompact out there..
simply put it 5 speed fun.. its
reliable thats y i bought it at 122,000
miles (WITH A PREVIOUSLY ABUSIVE OWNER)
the fuel pump went out and the
indicators did also due to the previous
owner messin with wires etc.. no
problems since and plan on havin it for
many years to come

Review

53000 miles and a new engine block?
they made the pistons too small for the
cylinders? WTF? the frameless doors
rattle and eventually do fall apart
inside, nothing to support the glass.
heater fan squeals/ chirps/doesn't
work.


Best Features

no complaints about the AWD. goes thru 2 ft of snow no prob. 30 mpg, well, before my engine went that is.


Worst Features

i cannot beleive they have stuck with the frameless door design.

Review

I love my 99 outback sport. I wouldn't
want any other car besides a newer
one. It is very versitile and the
engine is great. The only problem I
have is the cruise control doesn't work.


Best Features

AWD, lots of room for a small car, great handling, good pick up


Worst Features

I only wish that the two tone paint job was scraped in favor of just one color.
