1999 Subaru Legacy Outback Limited 30th Anniversary 4dr Wagon AWD


I have a 1992 legacy 2.2 with 245K miles, that still works flawlessly. However, I needed a lower mileage vehicle so how could I go wrong with another Suby so I bought a 1999 which now has 101K (I think because the speedometer/odometer is garbage). The 2.2 SOHC changed from a noninterference on my 92, to interference on the 2.2 SOHC 99 (won't get off with just a broken timing belt). No speedometer cable on the 99 only cheap three strand spaghetti wires (way too many). Subaru changed from reliable, to electrically ridden piles of crap, overpriced for the reliability. Love the wagon though. Ford Freestyles are a great AWD wagon alternative,good mpg too :). Sorry Subaru this will be my last one.

Best Features

AWD. Capacity.

Worst Features

Go back to what you were good at Subaru. Instead of saving a buck you should think about your loyal consumers who won't buy another Subaru now. Oh and the cup holder, better off holding a cup between your legs.
