1998 Subaru Legacy Outback Limited 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

85k in five years with minimal problems - replaced rear axle clutch plates last year, and some A/C and button lights have been out for years (expensive to replace). Handles lovely on curvy roads, although a few more horses would be nice; perfect suspension balance between handling and comfort. Extremely comfortable. Never been in a better snow (or other inclement weather) vehicle. Piston slap is normal and disconcerting, but three dealer mechanics have told me it does not cause problems.

Best Features

Build quality - over five years and no rattles yet - and I drive it hard. Still cleans up as pretty as the day I bought it.

Worst Features

Power and cupholders. Stronger A/C.
