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.
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).
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.
