A Sad Tale
By Ex-Subaru Fan on
1997 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Sedan AWD
This was a great car for 7 years and about 65,000 miles, then the engine problems started: the engine seals leaking, the throttle sensor failing. Same thing the other reviewers experienced. The dealer estimates it needs close to $3,000 in repairs. I took it to an independent mechanic who agreed with the dealer's assessment, but would charge somewhat less to fix it. He said this should not happen to a car with such low mileage, but he said he has replaced Subaru engines because of the problem. Will I fix it? No! Trade it? Yes! BUT NOT ON ANOTHER SUBARU. Never again will I buy a Subaru, and that's a darn shame.
Favorite Features
Styling, handling, especially in the snow, general fit and finish, cargo space.
Suggested Improvements
Better brake rotors which always were warped no matter how often machined or changed; trouble free engine.
