My little red wagon.
By Mark Paquin on


1997 Subaru Impreza L 4dr Wagon AWD


I bought this car last year. It had an exhaust leak and some rust. It lasted me a year before it started having more problems. The CV shafts gave on the right side, the entire exhaust system needs replacing, and the driver's side window stopped working. The floor carpeting seemed to be falling apart. Yet, despite these problems, it runs fine and deals with any weather like a pro. I wish I could afford to fix it. I drove it through the NH Ice Storm last year with no problems whatsoever.

Best Features

Good handling, nice power for a 2.2L, controls well in junky weather.

Worst Features

Not much to complain about. Most issues with the car were due to neglect by previous owners.
