Hard to Beat!
By mtnsnows on


1996 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


Bought with 60K, now 170. Have the 2.5 -
NEVER buy the 2.2! I drive in snowy
mountains and fast, hard highway
driving. Can't imagine a better car.
Comfy and full featured. Just noticed
the seats could be better (I'm 6'4",
230 lbs.), but has adj. lumber support
and seat heater makes popcorn!
Fantastic reliability. NO unsched.
maint. until 10K mi. ago. Overheated,
led to head gaskets. Re: other reviews.
The oil seal is designed to be replaced
with timing belts (at 60-80K), any
GOOD, TRUSTY dealer/mech will do this.
Awesome AWD, goes thru snow that leaves
Jeeps, Explorers and Rodeos stuck. Love
it! Hard to replace.
