1997 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD
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.
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.
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.
