1993 Subaru Legacy LS 4dr Sedan


Review

Got it used from a friend back in 2000 with 78K miles, now has 152 k on it. Great engine, no problem tranny, fantastic ignition, never failed to start in coldest Chicago and Boston winters, nor does it fail in the hot humid Miami summers. Drive 500 miles a week, including nonstop 160 mile trips. Nice smooth ride. Okay, problems - ABS unit cracked back in 2002. Slow leak of brake fluid requires refilling either every week or once a month. CV joints chronic. Other stuff maintenance based.


Best Features

Strong engine, 2.2 liters, yet easy 31 mpg (highway).


Worst Features

Brake system. While ABS malfunction does not affect brake system as the manual indicates, still, the brake fluid leaks from the unit, thereby needing replenishment periodicaly, as frequent as weekly. Replacing the ABS is not worth it on this old car, unless one can find on in a junkyard.

1993 Subaru Legacy LS 4dr Sedan


Review

It is hard to believe that the automobile technology 10 years ago was this good. My legacy has almost 130000 miles and it's still running like new. I still drive this on 300 - 500 mile trip regularly. And I don't get bothered by any kind of weather situations. Love this car!


Best Features

All-wheel drive and ABS


Worst Features

Electricals (Display pannel lights), and the wind noise.
