1996 Subaru Legacy Wagon LS 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

This car is very dependable and has been very comforting to drive in very bad weather. We've gone on numerous road trips, skiing, boating, camping etc., with the car completly packed with gear. I've never hesitated going off the beaten path into remote areas. AWD and ABS are amazing. It feels really good on the highways, nice and smooth.


Favorite Features

AWD/ABS. Large cargo area. Great heater and A/C.


Suggested Improvements

The cup holders on this yr are poorly designed, they're in the way of the radio. The interior lights for the heater at nightime are not enough. The windows do have some wind noise @ freeway speeds.

Review

Purchased Subaru for Safety ratings and what a mistake. I am convinced the safety rating are good, because its never out of the shop long enough to drive. Warrenty repairs: radio repaired twice, window repaired twice, battery terminals corroded, clutch adjusted. Everything else is not diagnosed until after warrenty: replaced front axle, replaced clutch, replaced wheel bearing, timing belt and replaced clutch. Guess what? It needs to be replaced again after only 18,000 miles. This is a family garage kept car. It is only 6 years old with mostly highway miles. The national and local dealer claim it is my driving and these repairs are "normal."


Favorite Features

NONE.


Suggested Improvements

Everything. I say its time for unhappy Subaru owners unite!!
