1999 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

In case you are considering this type of vehicle, please do your homework on the specific car you are looking at! Especially when the last time the head gaskets were changed. It could save many headaches. Subaru had a problem with the head gasket design in the 97- 99 2.5 liter engines. They have redesigned it at least three times. My Subaru was my third and will be my last. Love the car and expected reliability, got a $1400 repair bill within 3 weeks of ownership to replace the HGs. Dealer had a big grin when he quoted me without looking it up and said, 'yeah, we do a lot of those.' BEWARE!

Favorite Features

Actually like the design and handling.

Suggested Improvements

Engine design/reliability is awful! Go with a 2.2l or an 03 or newer 2.5.
