A 'Go anywhere, do everything' vehicle
By Mr Fussy! on


1997 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


Owned my 97 Outback for 6 years now. A
wonderful vehicle for doing just about
everything (except racing). It's
comfortable, loves to cruise (happiest
at 75-80), handling predicatable and
the quality remains. Great for hauling
big stuff, groceries, building
supplies, kids, pets and even towing a
small trailer. I'd give up ALL my other
cars before this one. Only big problem
was an alternator that suddenly died.
Out of warrantee, I got it fixed, but 1
month later Subaru writes about a
voluntary recall for this problem. Sent
Subaru of America my bill and received
reimbursement 4 months later! I'll
never be without a Subaru as long as I
can still drive.

Best Features

Ride, handling, reliability, mileage and unending ability to do just about anything and everything I want it to do! The lift tailgate is a wonderful roof when loading groceries a on rainy day, also.

Worst Features

Bigger engine (it's not a stop light burner), dual 8 way power seats, heated back seat.
