Reliable and Comfortable
By Genericman on


1998 Subaru Legacy Outback Limited 4dr Wagon AWD


85k in five years with minimal
problems - replaced rear axle clutch
plates last year, and some A/C and
button lights have been out for years
(expensive to replace). Handles lovely
on curvy roads, although a few more
horses would be nice; perfect
suspension balance between handling and
comfort. Extremely comfortable. Never
been in a better snow (or other
inclement weather) vehicle. Piston slap
is normal and disconcerting, but three
dealer mechanics have told me it does
not cause problems.

Best Features

Build quality - over five years and no rattles yet - and I drive it hard. Still cleans up as pretty as the day I bought it.

Worst Features

Power and cupholders. Stronger A/C.
