1998 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD

Review

My wife bought it new and handed it to me when we bought a new Forester this year. She's used it to carry dogs & horse stuff, to drive over fields, to carry our boys to all the usual places. I now drive it back and forth to work (15 miles/day), & my son drives it when home from college. We about 22 mpg, 24 if highway driving (but that's not often). So astonishingly dependable that when something goes wrong, you think somebody's been fooling with it.

Favorite Features

Cupholders. The Forester's cupholders are in between front seats - very clumsy to use. Legacy's are flimsy, but much more convenient. Huge storage space compared to Forester '08.

Suggested Improvements

The front seats are uncomfortable during long drives. Subaru fixed this as of the '08 Forester.
