Love this fun, safe car
By AdeleA on


1997 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


I have owned it for four years, and
drive it everywhere (across country,
vacations, work everyday). I feel safe
in it, and trust putting my family in
it everyday. Was in a car accident (not
my fault!) that pushed me across the
road and up on the sidewalk. Even
though caused alot of damage, I walked
out of the car with no injuries. Thank
god for a well built car.

Best Features

Pros: After buying it used (with 30K miles on it), it has been great. Have added over 80K miles to it, and still reliable with no major repairs (besides my accident). I love the look of it, and get compliments all the time. Everything (minor electronics/gadgets) still works.

Worst Features

Doesn't have much power (especially going up the mountains loaded down with gear), poor on gas mileage, and with a child and big dog, space is limited. The seats can become uncomfortable in long drives. Highly recommend it, only which it was 6 cylinder.
