1996 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

Overall, I've been very happy with the
Outback, a great alternative to SUVs.
Generally reliable until my 95K mile
gotcha -- exhaust valve replacement for
$2,400. Apparent design defect; my
local dealer said they see this
sometimes on the '96s. I opted for the
repair since I had had no other
problems in 7 years, just routine
maintenance.

Best Features

Size -- easy to get in/out, easy to navigate in a city, plows through snow

Worst Features

Design the gotcha repairs out of the car.l
