1998 Subaru Legacy GT Limited 4dr Sedan AWD

Review

This 1998 model year car had 36,000 miles when I purchased it in 2001 and I saved about $11,000 off the new price. Buying used, it was a very affordable, excellent handling sports sedan that is very capable in the snowy winters of New England. The 165hp 2.5L engine provides engough power to beat the traffic light rush from 4 lanes to 2 in some Boston intersections though it's nothing compared to the turbo rush of the WRX. The reliability problems I have had include several oil leaks from the crankshaft seal (40,000 miles, $400, covered by warranty) and the oil sending unit (75,000 miles, $150).

Favorite Features

All wheel drive, sporty handling, comfortable sport seats, sunroof, surprisingly big trunk for a sedan (I can easily fit 2 bicycles inside with the seats folded down).

Suggested Improvements

Cupholder placements, as others have mentioned.
