1998 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


Subarus are well-known cars for their reliability and durability, esp in weather conditions like the Northeast. So I bought one and don't ever regret it. Change the oil every 3k and general maintenance and you can log 200k+ miles on these machines. As other posts have mentioned, it does like to leak oil, so have them check for leaks during oil changes. But parts are cheap and mechanics love working on Subaru's because they are easy, albeit, when you need them to. They will rarely leave you stranded!!! Goes right through the snow and rain, the engine is quite peppy for a 4 cyl and good on gas and can run just fine on 89. Your overall cost owning a Subaru is one of the best.

Best Features

Cargo/rear folding seats, AWD, roof rack, fog lights, over-all design. Nice acceleration, sporty handling and durability.

Worst Features

Better seats. Improve console design, more sunroofs as standard feature. I wish the alloy rims didn't get corroded as easy.
