1999 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

We don't. We have had this vehicle in the shop more than any other vehicle we have ever driven. We have had to have the engine oil seals replaced twice. The clutch release lever went out. We had already replaced the clutch... The air conditioning system went out. Ok, I could go on, but you get the idea. We can't wait to sell our problem child to someone else!

Review

Started driving Subaru vehicles in 1985. This is the 4th Subaru in our family (1985 SW, 1986 SW (son), 1999 Brighton SW, 2005 Imprezza SW (wife)). The 1999 Brighton has been a solid car; excellent handing and good in the snow with Michelin all-season tires. Only one mechanical problem -- at 77000 miles, the front viscous coupling failed. Dealer recommended replacement of the clutch at the same time. Hope to replace this car at some point with another Subaru; will probably will opt for a Forester or the cheapest Outback.


Favorite Features

Good handling car. Got it at an excellent price.

Review

I bought this car over a camry or accord because it seemed faster, more sure-footed and useful. The car has been driven across country in Jan/Feb twice through the worst weather and just performed admirably under all conditions. The 2.2 litre flat 4 is reliable and powerful enough when mated to the Man 5. Wouldn't get the auto with this engine or the 2.5. I like the spartan no-nonsense interior with manual everything windows,doors, locks etc... 24 to 32 MPG 78000 trouble-free miles


Favorite Features

Simplicity, handling, reliability, AWD


Suggested Improvements

Larger fuel tank, softer more supportive seats and brighter headlights.
