  • What's New for 1995

    New sheet metal freshens the flanks of one of our favorite compact sedans and wagons. Unfortunately the turbocharged engine has been dropped, leaving the Legacy with a rather anemic 2.2-liter four-cylinder that produces a meager 135 horsepower. The value leader Brighton wagon is introduced for budding naturalists. It includes all-wheel drive, air conditioning and a stereo with cassette. The Outback Wagon is also introduced as an alternative to the burgeoning SUV market.

Reliable, but not very sharp

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD

I bought my Subaru in April, 2009. It's very reliable and I am able to get anywhere I want, when I want. It drives great in the snow. It's built very solid, which most cars these days are not. I would recommend this car to any new drivers. It is a really tough car!

I bought this car for 2400 bucks and about 3 years later it is still chugging. I have had to install some things. I have to change the O2 sensor and speed sensor. I also had one CV joint replaced. All in all a good car and this is the second Legacy I have owned. I couldn't complain b/c I got my money's worth.




Reliable used car

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD

We purchased this car about two and a half years ago for a little less than $3K. It has held up very well over all and now has about 122K miles on it. The starter needed to be replaced and the ball joint on the passenger side wheel just was replaced but all other maintenance has been standard stuff. Given that the car is 12 years old, that's a pretty decent record for two and a half years.

Super reliable

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD

We live in Brooklyn and wanted a cheap & dependable car with AWD/ABS which was cheap to insure and wasn't on thieves' 'hot list'. A year later this little Subaru has proved to be exceptional - and 100% reliable. We make regular trips to the ski areas in VT in winter & to NC beaches in summer. And never a problem. We hit a major snowstorm near Stowe and this car plowed through 6" of fresh no problem! It handles great on the freeway and cruises wonderfully at around 70-75. Having done 80k all the struts need replacing thanks to very bad NYC roads - but suspension still ok regardless so we'll leave it. Only gripe is very poor mpg in city, yet freeway mpg is very good. Great value for 3 grand!

Keeps on goin...

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD

It is a great car. I have 200,500 miles on it and it runs like brand new with some preventative maintenance. It did seem to loose some pep after about 150,000 miles, but with a good tune up, the car was fine. The car has survived through a bunch of tough winters in New York and as long as good tires are on it, it is great in the snow! There is nothing like the look on someones face when you drive by while they are digging their Ford Explorer out of a ditch in a snow storm! The body has held up great with no rust present at all. Proper maintenance is important and should let this car last for years to come!




Most trouble free car!

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD

I've been driving this car for 7 year and have spent nothing on repairs. The alternator was replaced on a recall and the knock sensor under warranty. Oil change is a breeze. Filter and drain plug can be reached without jacking. Good handling, a little weak on pickup. Good in snow unless it's deep (15" plus)tends to pack under the body.
