1998 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

I am the original owner of this car. It now has about 155,000 miles. Had to replace the head gasket at 89,000 miles. Was not a happy camper, but its been running OK since then. A few quirky problems, mostly with sensors and brakes, but once they are replaced, it seems fine. I will probably be replacing it within a year, and I don't think I will buy another Subaru, but I can't honestly think of a more affordable AWD vehicle with as much room as it has. Hopefully Subaru has improved its quality a bit since 98.

Best Features

AWD is great in the winter. Car like drive. Good cargo space for its size.

Worst Features

Hopefully, the engine is better on the new ones. To me, having to replace the head gasket at 89,000 was unacceptable. Hopefully, they've improved the brake system also.
