1997 Subaru Legacy Outback Limited 4dr Wagon AWD


I just bought this car in early august with 339,500 miles on it, now its got over 400k and i have little complaints. The hatch wont open...idk; the gas gauge does not work, however the gas dumby light does; The seat heaters, 12v outlets, heated power mirrors, all work, but by some manufcturers ****, they all are on the one 20 amp fuse, which means they all work but dont try and use the 12v...once again im confused of how to fix it. But everything else works, minus a fog light which had a rock put through at 60mph a couple weeks ago. Great on gas almost 400mile on one tank. Satisfying perfomance and handling. Stereo is weak, and finding a wiring converting kit for it is impossible.

Best Features

Heated seats, heated mirrors, AWD, cruise, fog lights, extremely hot heating system for the cold winters.

Worst Features

Improve sturdiness and position of cupholders. Stereo quality. Brightness of dash cluster backlights.
