Tough overall, some weak points
By martes on
Vehicle1993 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan
ReviewGot 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 FeaturesStrong engine, 2.2 liters, yet easy 31 mpg (highway).
Worst FeaturesBrake 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.
