  • 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.

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD

A plain, unassuming car, but very reliable overall. AWD is handy, esp. in ice/snow. Disappointing gas mileage for a 4 cyl. Cup holder an abject failure. Horizontally opposed 4 (get the 2.2, not the 2.5) is dated but very reliable. (Thank you, Dr. Porsche, for the concept). Auto. trans. is a balky Borg-Warner unit. Ugh. Shades of Rambler. Car is too low slung, but corners well. I installed a cut-out switch to select FWD or AWD, which helps with fuel economy. (Why did Subaru eliminate that feature?). One of those cars which, despite its faults, grows on you, and is a worthy ride. My next car will have to compensate for the Legacy's plain vanilla persona. Perhaps a Caprice Police Interceptor?




So long my subaru

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD

I just had an accident with my 95, and the insurance company has chosen to total it, but I will really miss it, and look forward to my next Subaru. With 124,000 miles, it still got 28-30 mpg on the highway, could hold an amazing amount of cargo, and was great in the snow. Sure, it leaked a little oil like most old Subies, but not enough to have to add any. Had some wind noise around the driver's door, and no mechanic could ever figure out the vibration that happened between 60 & 80 mph, but nothing that made me regret buying it. It's a great practical car.




Super reliable 1995 subaru wagon

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD

I'm the original and sole owner of my 1995 Legacy L wagon. As of July 07 it has 125000 miles and is going strong. Three years ago I bought a 2nd, newer Subaru thinking I'd sell the '95 after another winter. Well, I'm still attached to it because it's just SO reliable. Engine needed new oil gaskets at about 95000 mi, that's about it. It's a 5 speed manual with original clutch. Changed oil and rotated tires every 5000 milies and the car stays happy. Like other reviewers, my gas gauge is weird... use the trip odometer. Car still gets ~26 mi to gallon.




Great car!

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD

I bought this car used in 2002, drove like a brand new car and continued to perform and handle like new with routine maintenance and care. All standard and optional features continued to perform as new - rear window defrost and wipers, cruise control, audio, auto locks, mirror adjust, air conditioning, everything!

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD

We bought this car with 120K miles on it. Now it has 160K and is still running strong. It does excellent in the snow, and we have only had to do the regular maintenance on it. Had a '92 Subaru wagon before this one with 180k that was still going strong with no problems until it got totaled. Unfortunately, the wagons will not fit 3 car seats in the back, so we have to search, very reluctantly, for something else. We will dearly miss our Subarus! Interior has held up well, with 3 kids and a dog and numerous camping trips. Speedometer does some weird tricks. Hauls 3 bikes, a rocketbox, and snowboards easily on top. Mechanically exceptionally sound. Where is the Subaru minivan?




My second subaru wagon

Vehicle: 1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD

I've owned 2 Subaru Wagons for 18 years. I've found them to be reliable & easy to handle, especially the range of the steering wheel. The cargo area is quite attractive with the cover to conceal all items. I have always maintained my vehicles be- cause I dread having my car break down in the middle of nowhere. I also have a complete record of all maintenance & repairs to this vehicle for anyone to peruse. My most recent maintenance included brake work and oil change. The tires are in good condition & are con- stantly rotated in order to keep them balanced. A wagon makes a good family car because it's roomy & has plenty of space for lots of baggage.
