1998 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD


245,000. This engine is still very zippy. However, the previous owner "cooked" the original engine; probably the head gaskets. So, we were fortunate that the car had a newer engine and have had "zero" problems since we purchased it four years ago. We have had the paint touched up, installed an immobilizer, beefed up the sound system, bought it high- performance tires and started running it on synthetic. Have had it up to 140km/h recently, just for fun on a straight open highway and the car barely vibrates... so smooth! My 6 and 7-1/2yr old kids love it and since we've started looking for something a little less hungry for fuel, they've been sad that we may trade it in. I'm a little sad too!

Best Features

All wheel drive! Literally passing trucks and jeeps in the ditch in two feet of snow! (Do have a separate set of rims with winter tires if you live in a very harsh "Canadian" winter climate.)

Worst Features

Fuel economy is only "fair". Cup holder is a little "iffy", so you have to watch that your drink isn't leaking as it will go right into your stereo system's deck!
