1997 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

Learned the hard way that head gasket problems are not uncommon w/2.5l engine. Mine went out at 87,000 mi, engine seals at 85,000. The car is fun to drive, but reliability has been a big dissapointment. I won't buy another Subaru.

Favorite Features

Handling and acceleration are great.

Suggested Improvements

Aforementiontioned reliability problems, cupholders block the radio and heater controls.
