1996 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD

Review

I bought my Subaru for two primary reasons: Subaru's reputation for reliabilty, and AWD. The car has been rock solid reliable, without a single unscheduled repair in nearly seven years. The AWD had come in handy on occassion (especially this year), and is nice to have. Handling is excellent. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly and downshifts predictably when needed. The interior is comfortable, though material quality is unimpressive. My only complaint is the lack of low end power - I have the 2.2 engine, and should have sprung for the 2.5.

Favorite Features

AWD - has pulled me out of snow that has left others spinning their wheels. Interior space - surprisingly large back seat.

Suggested Improvements

Subaru dropped the 2.2 engine from the line-up, as they should have. The cupholder is badly placed, small, and flimsy.
