1994 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car & drove it for nearly a year before selling it to my teenage son - his first car & he wanted to pay for it. Easy car to learn maintenance. He has had it for last 2 years of HS & first 2 years of college. Now has 144K miles, uses no oil between oil changes and still runs fine. I think this was a good choice for a first car. Its FWD-only, so gets good fuel economy ~28/29mpg. Only problem has been with axles, exhaust, and brakes - all routine stuff to expect on a car of this age. A/C has recently stopped blowing cold but he doesn't care. Nice size roof for aftermarket Thule racks and attachments that are now worth more than the car itself - easy to load bikes onto roof racks.

Favorite Features

The 2.2 motor is great. 94 Subaru is more fun to drive than my boring 02 Prizm. Easy routine maintenance. Big trunk. Airbag for new driver.

Suggested Improvements

of course, the cupholders. wheel wells collect dirt/mud & if debris is not removed, typically rust at same location at back of wheel wells.
