1998 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD
Review
Bought used. 3 years old and 34000 miles. Avg hwy 27mpg. 2 problems, exhaust heat shield weld broke and rattles and like previous posts, head gasket gone at 95k. Was losing a third of my anti-freeze. Yet couldn't find out where it was going. Not on the ground or in the oil??? Other than that mechanic said engine is good, Cylinder pressure test 155-160. Leakage 2%. Except for the engine repair this car has served me well. I have done several 20 hour road trips at 75 mph. Including a DEN-IND-DEN run during the blizzard in Dec 06. Must have picked up a few hundred pounds of ice yet the car was stable and predictable. MPG dropped to 21 hwy.
Favorite Features
Heated seats/mirrors and wipers. AWD. Lots of room.
Suggested Improvements
Engine reliability. Seats need more padding. Better cup holders. Exhaust heat shield to avoid rattles.
