1996 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Turns easily, storage capacity has been great, comfortabe interior; has been dependable.

Suggested Improvements

Too loud on the inside when driving (of course I had a camry prior to this); too difficult for weekend "mechanics" to get to certain things within the engine area; fuel economy sucks!!
