1998 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

The Subaru has a nice quiet smooth ride and handles quite well around curves. I have gotten good gas mileage up to 30 on a trip in the summer and about 26 locally in the summer, the mileage drops alot in the winter to about 22 locally. I had the dealer change both the front main and rear main seals under warranty. Only because the were dripping slighly. Also the heater selecter switch light burned out and they repalced that. My main only concern is the noisy engine it runs fine but is really noisy at cold starts then gets a little quiter when warm. I like the room and utility use of this vehicle and I just turn up the sterio to overcome the engine noise.

Favorite Features

The looks of the Outback and the cargo area, roof racks, also I have a trailer hitch to pull a small utility trailer. Gas mileage is decent.

Suggested Improvements

To decrease the motor noise, also the cup holder needs to be moved it blocks the radio heater blows on drinks.
