1997 Subaru Impreza L 4dr Wagon AWD


I've replaced the axle three times. all
the mechanics have told me it's a

Out where I live asphault covers only
a small percentage of the terraine.
I'm not going four wheeling with the
thing, but it is exposed to terrain that
has seriously messed it up.

Other than that though the car has
been great. It's fun to drive. It's the
right size for me. It's got a great

I'm now selling the thing, but only
because of the axles. If that hadn't
been the case I probably would have
been able to keep this car for at least
50,000 more miles.
