1991 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon


Review

I bought this 1991 Subaru legacy wagon with 5 speed manual transmission from the original owner 13 years ago. It now has 247,000 miles on it. It runs great. Most repairs have been normal maintenance. The biggest issue now is that it barely made it through DEQ last year. Too much CO. Next year may be it. Oh, and yes, gas mileage is pretty bad if all you do is drive traffic light to traffic light. That produces 15 mpg when I do that. But usually I get 19 in mixed, mostly city, driving, and 30 on the freeway at 60 mpg. There are lots of SUV's out there but very few Japanese station wagons being made any more. I'm keeping this one until it blows up. Or flunks DEQ.


Best Features

The overall size is small, but it has ample room for 5 adults. Back seat has good leg room, even with the front seats pushed all the way back.


Worst Features

Mine requires premium, for some reason. Other people with this model run regular. Do not expect to blow somebody off the line at a traffic light. Going up mountains with any kind of load you may end up in 3rd gear. Power is not its forte.

1991 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon


Review

My mom bought our Subaru Legacy L wagon used and drove the heck out of it (back and forth to college at least 3 times a week [94 miles a trip].). We still own this car and it still runs and drives quite well at over 350,000 miles. In owning this car for several years we have only had to have it worked on 3 times and have put a little more than 225,000 miles on it. This Legacy has been the most reliable and tough vehicle that we have ever owned. This was the first car I learned to drive and Subaru has been my favorite automotive company ever since.


Best Features

Roomy, very comfortable seats, good fuel economy, big trunk, great sound system, extremely reliable engine and powertrain, tough body and pretty fun to drive (for a wagon).


Worst Features

This car could've had a more aerodynamic body and maybe the air suspension system from the '91 XT6 to make the ride somewhat smoother, but other than that just a great car.

1991 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon


Review

i have owned and operated a 91 subaru legacy l wagon for the past two years and it has been wonderful. i have had no major problems and i still get about 21 miles to the gallon. i am a high school student and i think that it would make an excelent first car. for an old wagon i was extremely suprized to discover the pep that the car can deliver. i have an automatic transmission, and i really seems to choose the gears well depending on how much pressure you put on the gas. with a little wider tires, the vehicle seems to have a better feel on the road, so i would suggest that as an aftermarket addition.


Best Features

ABS, power steering, power windows, power door locks, security device


Worst Features

again the wider wheels. also a cd player is nice
