1997 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

I bought this car over e-bay at 85k and I now have 104k on it. I've spent $2500 since then for all the normal stuff (brakes, tires, struts, timing belt, ect,). It lives outside and since I'm always in a hurry, I drive it hard. So far, it has taken all my abuse in stride. Since it has the 5- speed, it can be fun to drive. The ride is rough, but it handles well. The rear fenders have started to rust where the wheel well meets the rear bumper. This may be due to poor care on the 1st owners part. No other rust.

Favorite Features

AWD is great. As long as you have good tires and you don't bottom the car out, you can make it through any snow storm. Lots of leg room for back seat passanges. Good trunk space. Sporty look for a 4-door. Nice wide tires. Does not use oil.

Suggested Improvements

Better milage. Less noise. Softer ride. Bigger cup holder!
