My first subaru

Vehicle: 1999 Subaru Legacy GT 4dr Sedan AWD

My cousins have talked about these cars for years! I did not believe them at first, I needed a used car that was good on gas, I found this one, it needed brakes, a front wheel bearing and 1 tire, I bought it for $1300.00 and did the work needed, Well let me tell you after I drove it I fell in love with it, goes any where, gas mileage after a tune up is 39 highway, This is awesome,




Most reliable car i've ever

Vehicle: 1999 Subaru Legacy GT 4dr Sedan AWD

Bought this car in December of 2006 after I totaled my last car hitting a deer. It came with brand new snows on it and I was instantly amazed at how well it handled in the snow and ice. I have plowed through a foot of snow in an unplowed driveway without much trouble at all. In the 2.5 years I have owned it (35,000 miles) the only problem I have had was the knock sensor going bad. $70 later and it was back in action.




First japanese car

Vehicle: 1999 Subaru Legacy GT 4dr Sedan AWD

I bought this car for my wife after her 1997 Lumina blew a head gasket. But after 5,000 miles I am very happy with this car. Being meticulous about upkeep I immediately set about replacing all fluids, filters, plugs and wires. This car runs better than new. I bought this car with 90,000 miles mainly because it had complete service records from the previous owner who was almost as careful as I am about maintenance. Everything done at the dealership at the scheduled intervals. this alone made me buy this car it was clean inside you can tell it wasn't abused. My wife hated this car at first now I cant get her out of it. This is my first Japanese car and I think I'm going to be very happy with it.

I am very pleased with the value per $ I have gotten out of my 99 Legacy GT. The interior seems very stylish luxurious but comfortable. The exterior has razor sharp classic line styling. The 2.5 litre flat 4-cylinder has a suprising amount of torque not present in other comparable 4-cylinder equiped cars. All I can say is All Wheel Drive = All We'll Drive
