poor man's Audi
By canuck on


1998 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


Have had this car from new with no
major problems only routine
maintenance. A very reliable car and
great in snow and rain especially with
real snow tires mounted to spare rims.
Could use a little more power but with
the 5 speed a quick downshift brings
you back into the power band. Expect
to get many more years out of it and
appreciate the reliability and build
quality. A poor man's Audi A4 but with
more room and affordable repairs and
parts. Good, not great, handling and
very comfortable on a recent cross
country trip(4K miles in a month)

Best Features

All wheel drive, you forget it's there till the road turns slick then you wave at all the oversized SUV's you pass.

Worst Features

Quieter and more powerful engine, just an extra 20-30 horsepower please.
