1997 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


great all wheel drive, needs more pep.
at 105,000 miles developed minor noise.
took it in and were told a rod or
bearing is lose or broken. $4000 for
new engine. what happened to japanese
reliability? test drove an '05 and it
seems they have addressed the pep issue!
wonder if it will last? seems like
hondas go on forever, hoped the subaru
would too.

Best Features

All Wheel Drive! great in rain or snow! flat engine also allows sport car like handling! throws itself around curves like a expensive sport car, but with ground clearance.

Worst Features

more reliable engine!
