1997 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

Bottom line, this just isn't a reliable car. Bought the car with 100K thinking that Subarus run forever. I was wrong. Brakes wear down quickly and it seems to always be leaking oil. At 130K the head gasket blew and the cylinder heads cracked. Repair bill ran over $2,500K. Next time I go Japanese it'll be Toyota or Honda.

Favorite Features

Handles snow effortlessly. Looks great from the outside. Roomy in back.

Suggested Improvements

Reliability. Power. Turning radius.
