By monster B on


1997 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Sedan AWD


I have had this car for 4 yrs now, and
I must say it is not what I thought it
would be....I have spent over 3,000$
repairing it in the past year....head
gasket(1500$)....wheel bearings,
struts, the heater only works on full
blast(had it fixed once already), the
lights on the heater control and the
seat heaters dont work, the powerlocks
dont work, the enging howls at
40mph....and it leaks oild like a
siv...I take good care of my cars, and
this one has not been reliable at

Best Features

all wheel drive, this car is incredible in the snow..I actually towed a friend out of a snowbank with a jeep wrangler that got stuck, mine drove right in and towed his out

Worst Features

more power(avalable in newer models) better reliability.... better gas milage
