1999 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

Great vehicle until it falls apart. Unfortunately it happens right after the warranty expired. Simple inside but runs great. For last year (from 60K to 70K miles) wheel bearing died, clutch was replaced, famous head gasket blown out and finally crankshaft bearings burned out (new engine required). It looks like head gasket problem is very common (more then 20% of cars?). Unfortunately engine replacement (without prior problems - no overheats till red line) before 100K miles is not unique for that car. So my advise - if you have it - get rid of it right away. Otherwise if you plan to own it for a warranty terms length it's a great car.

Favorite Features

AWD, wagon, manual transmission, pretty high clearance.

Suggested Improvements

Make cars that lasts more then 100K miles as it used to be. More powerful engine would be nice too.
