1996 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

Overall, I've been very happy with the Outback, a great alternative to SUVs. Generally reliable until my 95K mile gotcha -- exhaust valve replacement for $2,400. Apparent design defect; my local dealer said they see this sometimes on the '96s. I opted for the repair since I had had no other problems in 7 years, just routine maintenance.

Favorite Features

Size -- easy to get in/out, easy to navigate in a city, plows through snow

Suggested Improvements

Design the gotcha repairs out of the car.l
