1997 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD


I've dreamed of owning an Outback ever since I was 13. The vehicle was everything I expected it to be. Great with every driving condition (dry, rain, ice, snow). Great interior room and ride. I'm seriously considering buying another newer model of the Outback.

Best Features

AWD. Good MPG (for an AWD). Ride quality. Reliability with good maintenance. Drive terrain capability. Speedy acceleration.

Worst Features

Interior design (especially climate controls, bulb burned out and can't see at night). Noticeable road noise. Head gasket problems at 100K. Engine fumes seep into interior. Gas gauge fails to give good reading (estimation w/ trip). Better brakes (wear too easily). Transmission jerky.
