What Could Go Wrong Next?

1997 Subaru Legacy GT 4dr Sedan AWD

Review

The alternator went...the antenna will not retract automatically...the dash lights behind the heating controls do not work...the radio would turn on only when it felt like it and would sometimes be off for days...the wiring to the headlights had to be completely redone by a dealer...the driver's side door lock does not turn...the left rear passenger window control does not work...burning oil smell coming from the engine...and this week while driving at night the whole dashboard suddenly went black!...stuff like this is all too typical for this car! Not acceptable. This is my last Subaru.

Best Features

Full-time AWD gives you the peace of mind to get where you need to be no matter what the driving conditions. Had a blast with this car in the snow, it can handle an unplowed road with 6 inches of snow. Sunroof. Styling and look of the car. Generous trunk space and folding rear seats.

Worst Features

Cupholders that hold onto something bigger than a 12 oz. soda can! Reliable hardware, mechanical, and electrical systems. An engine that doesn't knock, tick and smell. Running the A/C produces a white film on the windows, especially the rear window.
