funky wagon; I love it!

1997 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD
Review
Flawless reliability. Except for the battery dying once, the car has given me no problems, despite being involved in one major crash in its first year. Interesting styling too, with the opening in the hood and aggressive- looking wheels. Definately not going to be mistaken for an old Buick wagon. In 1997 there was no other wagon with a manual shift that looked this good for a reasonable price. The manual shift is very pleasant, making this car fun to drive despite the not-earth- shattering power.
Favorite Features
Styling. Cargo space is excellant. The clutch and shifter work well. Clutch is especially nice, as it doesn't have the long travel that some cars have. Engine makes a nice, low- pitched rumble that makes the car feel higher powered than it is.
Suggested Improvements
The seats could use more lumbar support. Speaking of lumbar support, the adjuster knob for mine popped off, which would have been annoying if there was any noticable difference between the various settings. Needs more power. Fuel economy lacking...I get 19 city, 24 hwy.
