Snow bound in Siberia
By Leadfoot on


1999 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


The car was purchased prior to transfer to Finland for its 4wd. It's handled great on the ice covered roads of northern Finland with some issues related to brakes wearing out early (Maybe too much salt on the roads). It does suck down the gas but has reliable starting history and only required some minor maintenance on the cooling system to date. It is an oil burner but not such that it needs any additional in the 3,000 mile change intervals that I am using. Found the Fully synt oil burns or runs out faster than the partially synt. Now looking at a new clutch set replacement after 120k. Not bad since it does take a bit of abuse.

Best Features

ICE and snow handling. Heated seats in the cold of winter.

Worst Features

Poor brakes and cooling problems through the life.
