1997 Subaru Legacy GT 4dr Sedan AWD

Review

Reading other reviews proves I am not
only one. At 16000 miles had to have
engine replaced due to bad cylinder.
Also the auto antenna sticks
constantly. It is erratic, can't make
up mind whether up/down. Also the ride
is like a truck, very noisy. Mechanic
at dealership says it is the tires
which are original wide tires. It is
VERY good in snow. Design of the cup
holder is extremely poor which has been
changed in the latest ones.

Best Features

The interior is nice with the leather seats and steering wheel. It is stable in rain/snow/ice. The AWD is a PLUS for handling. It compares in looks with the expensive European sedans. Space good for 4 adults, tight for 5. Children space is adequate.

Worst Features

The engine is weak when loaded with passengers and luggage, needs the 6 cylinder. The radio antenna needs to be changed since it is a common problem with this vehicle.
