I still love it

Vehicle: 1996 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan

I really like my car. I bought it for the NY winters and it hasn't let me down. I've had to put some money into it but almost all problems have been rust related (catalytic converters, gas line, oil seal leaks). My best money spent on it was to improve the wheels to after-market 5-spoke alloys. Makes the car look more unique and much better. If this car was in any other state than NY I assume that it would be best car ever built. I recommend them to anyone who needs AWD.




Subarus rock!

I am completely happy with the purchase of my 1996 Subaru. It has over 100,000 miles, but runs very smoothly. The only downside is that when idling it does kinda shake, but it's not an inconvenience. It's not very zippy and speedy, but once it gets over 50 it is easy to cruise. The cupholder is pretty much worthless, but that is it's only major flaw. If you have the opportunity to find one of these cars, especially for a first time buyer or teenager, spring on it! They are hardy and very reliable.




An ok vehicle but far

Vehicle: 1996 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan

Purchased in early 2000 with 68,000 miles. Subs are big business in the NW so figured it would maintain a great resale value. Now have approx 137k miles and will probably get rid of it. To often, something is going wrong, now it has another oil leak that will require tearing apart the engine to find. On again, off again pinging coming from underneath and squeaking from the passenger side wheels. This model looks better with the spoiler (which I have) but wished I'd chosed something other than the "suburu green" color which is far too common of a color for sub. Also, paid way too much for this car.

What's New for 1996

A new sport model debuts, with a larger, more powerful engine. The 2.5GT is available in sedan or wagon format. The luxury-oriented LSi model also gets the new motor. A knobby-tired, raised-roof Outback wagon appears, offering 7.3 inches of ground clearance and an optional 2.5-liter engine. Designed specifically for American consumers, the Outback provides a carlike ride with light-duty off-road ability.
