Great Little Car by Rhonda from Nicholson on 04/14/2010. Trim: 1999 Subaru Legacy Wagon Outback, Owned 8 years.
Pros: Had to work outside the home for the first time this last winter. Worst storms we've had in a very long time. Drove through nearly a foot of snow 20 miles one way home at night more than once. Love this car. Love the heated seats and the wiper de-icer saved me in one of those storms. We will fix the minor problems it has and give it to my daughter next year for her first car. Has over 150,000 miles on it and is running very well still. I would like to answer the guy who said the 4 cylinder has no power. Our Subaru holds it's own very well on the Skukyll Expressway in Philly. I recently took it on a trip and it excellerated nicely when needed and handled very well.
Cons: Would like to see better gas mileage. And the seats are a little uncomfortable for me ( I am 6ft tall). It taps when it is first started and is beginning to use a little oil. The rattle is the heat shield cover and it seems to want to rust.
Overall review: Overall, we have gotten much more than our money's worth from this sweet little car. I feel safe in the snow and rain. I just got rid of a 2000 Dodge Caravan with only 80,000 miles and bought a 2001 Subaru Legacy Outback wagon for me (184,000 mi) so I can give this car to my daughter next year. I expect to get at least 4 - 5 years on my new one and at least 2-3 more out of the current 1999 model. This is a very well made car and worth every little expense to maintain it.
