1998 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


Bought it used 8 years ago. Doing regular maint, it has been 100% reliable. With snow tires, it just goes and goes in New Hampshire winters - even on unplowed roads and driveways with 18 inches of snow, it can't be stopped. Not the most comfortable of cars (we have two other cars for long distance trips), but when the snow starts falling or we're headed skiing, it's always the Subie we take out. Best 11k I've ever spent.

Best Features

AWD in the snow. Forget the Cherokees and other SUVs we often see in ditches off 93 or 89 or 95. It is great in the snow.

Worst Features

Better seats, preferably heated.
