1998 Subaru Legacy Outback Problems

Failure in ABS causes pump to run continuously and wear down battery
A failure in the anti-lock brake system (ABS) causes the ABS pump to continuously run, which will eventually wear down the battery. An improved ABS relay is available to solve the problem.
Mass air flow sensor recall

Subaru issued a recall (WWG-90) because the mass air flow sensor has a manufacturing defect.

Engine Oil May Leak From Camshaft/Crankshaft Front Seals

Front engine oil leaks can develop from the camshaft seal and the crankshaft front seal. If one or more seals require replacement, it may be wise to consider replacing the timing belt as well. These seals are commonly inspected and replaced as needed as part of a timing belt service.

1998 Subaru Legacy Outback Reviews

awesome car rides smooth and very quit
This car is a good, solid car. It easily handles virtually any road condition, the brakes are excellent, and has good gas mileage. It also can carry a large load for a car. The cupholders are flimsy, and the sparkplugs are hard to reach; but this is a car that I recommend to anyone looking for a good, non-expensive car.
