Sally Subaru #5 And Stuck in the 90s...

1999 Subaru Legacy Limited 30th Anniversary 4dr Sedan AWD

Review

Sure there are things about Subarus that are truths... if it's a 2.5 and yours hasn't blown a head gasket... it will. (best to wait to buy one that's been there and done that). At the first signs of bubbled paint on the rear quarter panel, get the strut towers patched - sealed and get rid of the rust... .or quickly watch the rear end rust to pieces. Your rear wheel bearings will fail, plan on it. I'm watching the throat on the gas tank... one day... it's going to go... been there done that too. Otherwise... you've got yourself a sweet ride... Change oil regularly... and you'll be driving your sooby for a long long time.

I bought my lgt for a steal, it leaked a lot of oil after 90k miles. I'm rebuilding the engine with all new seals, sti headgaskets and having some port and polish work done to the heads. after that and some basic transmission, brake and differential service the car is solid for hopefully another 100k. I like this car and think its a great fixer upper if you know how to.

That Box May Have a Use

Review

I got this about 6 years ago for my wife. I loved it in 2002. Now, in 2008, 9 years later, boxy doesn't fit my cool image. I love the AWD but the styling sucks. It's a box! I do not like any imitation wood or ugly black plastic. It has some wind noise over 65 mph. I like that the Limited interior for its modern decade features like CD player and heated power leather seats. I wish I could have got the wagon after I got kids, but I changed my mind after I folded down the seats for the first time. Soccer moms come here! Over all it is a great vehicle, but do you and your cosmetic mind a favor: Year 2000 or up Subaru Legacy or Impreza.

SNOW KING

Review

We've only had this car for a short time, but already we can tell that it is built solidly. This car is unmatched going through snow. It's as good as my '98 Dakota 4x4. We also had two AWD Eagle Talons, and this car beats them in bad weather hands down. But with this being said, you must remember that the Talon's AWD was built for quick cornering and handling, not so much for the snow. The Subaru was made for rough terrain and bad weather. So if you want speed and torque, pass this car up. With only 165 hp what you see is what you get. This is a superior winter car and the heated leather seats are awesome. Plus it holds it's value well and for a sedan it looks pretty darn sporty too.

Always reliable, goes anyplace, stops on a dime. However, Subaru did replace the engine at 42,000 at no cost. There was a flaw with it. We often hit 29 or 30 mpg on regular gas.

Review

I live in the northeast and this car gets me where I need to go through all weather conditions. It's AWD and winter weather package are wonderful alternatives to waiting for the snow plow to pass by my road on a wintry morning. I got in an accident with this car, but walked away without a scratch. I love driving my subaru!

Review

I bought this after researching for almost two years. I bought it for the all-wheel-drive system, which is the only sedan that offers this at a reasonable price. It has been great. Great pick up on the 2.5 l 165 hp engine. Quick! Great on snow also!

Handles exceptionally well in our NE winters! Classy feel and great ride. I'll run it into the ground, but looks like that'll take awhile!
