1998 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD


I had wanted an Outback but I test drove the GT & loved it. It is an agile performer & is lots of fun to drive. Last Winter I got to try it out in the snow & ice. What a blast! For the first time I did not worry about losing control & ending up in a ditch on my way to work. Wouldn't do a donut in the parking lot though... I have been very impressed with the ease of maintaining this car. Reliability has been great. Have only had one minor problem that the dealer fixed (oil drip).

Best Features

I really enjoy the handling & the sports car feel. I know that this car will be very reliable. Resale value continues to be pretty good.

Worst Features

Could use a little more power but I found a supplier that carried K&N filters for Subarus - got a few extra horses from the extra air flow. On cold days you can hear the valves tick until it warms up. Don't use the cup holder if you want to use the stereo.
