by veedubberlover on Mar 1, 2011 Vehicle: 1990 Subaru Legacy LS 4dr Wagon
I bought my Subaru Legacy LS in the beginning of 09.
I am the third owner.
When purchased it had a rebuilt engine at about 80k miles. Though the car had 189k miles. Purchased for 1000$.
I put about 3k into it in the last two years. It was in pretty bad shape.
But after all that it was a wonderful car.
Though last weekend a big suburban crunched the rear end on it. Now the insurance wants to give me 900 for it.
I intend to get at least two k.
About what replacement would cost.
I put a good 50k miles on the vehicle and she still purrs like a kitten.
May even keep her and see if I can find another to move into and have a parts car!
Other than this she has been a joy!

I bought this car used at a price of $
7,000, ten years ago. Now the odometer
is up to 278,000 miles and the engine
is still purring, economical... and not
a trace of smoke, transmission issues
or any old age problem. We had a few
repairs including seal replacements,
wear parts and gaskets,CV's,
alternators (2), drive belts and
pulleys, pump (2) and my own
recharging air cond - and now a couple
of small rust spots appear on side of
I've been careful to use best test
rated friction reducing oil additives.
Quite low cost per mile for such a
roomy and comfortable transportation?
Finally must take it to charity
donation -not due to problems.
The Legacy is an entirely new line that is geared toward a more traditional audience than the Coupe/Sedan/Wagon. The Legacy is the largest vehicle produced by Subaru and is available as a sedan or wagon. A multi-valve engine is offered for the first time on a Subaru, as are the optional antilock brakes.
