1997 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

This is my 2nd Subaru and handles the Washington winters-I've pulled many larger cars and 4X4's up our hill with this car. The 5 sp manual is fun, gets better acceleration/mileage than an automatic. It has been very reliable, though it has a slow oil leak and have had to replace the struts. It goes very well off road, hauls a trailer easily, and has a very versatile interior for hauling people or cargo. The exterior paint has been very durable. It could use higher headrests, exterior mirror pivots, better drink holders in a better position, and better sound insulation. Three kids have learned to drive on this car and I plan to keep it until "Sabastian" is abducted to college.

Best Features

AWD, safety rating, good gas mileage (for AWD), flexible interior, seat height adjuster

Worst Features

It could use higher headrests, exterior mirror pivots, better drink holders in a better position, and better sound insulation.
