Perfect for Canadian winters
By davidscott on


1998 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


Canada: I owned this vehicle for 4
years and 80,000kms. It was the
perfect car for a small family and was
truly capable in winter with some
Nokian Hakka snow tires. Had to have
the clutch replaced 3 times under
warranty, and the short block replaced
twice under warranty. A bit
underpowered for my taste though.
Despite these, I would definitely buy
another Subaru in the future.

Best Features

AWD, cold weather package. Versatile family hauler. Good looks. Fun to drive. A perfect foul-weather car - great for winter.

Worst Features

Low-range transmission like the rest of the world gets. Better clutch. Higher build quality of engine - shortblock had to be replaced twice due to piston slap. Headlights were not great - I added some 100W 6" driving lights for highway driving.
