1997 Subaru Impreza Brighton 2dr Coupe AWD


My husband, who is absolutely not into cars at all, who wouldn't know a ping from a thump, and who therefore could conceivably really run a car into the ground without even knowing it, has been driving this vehicle for 11 years now completely problem free. I make sure that all the regular maintenance is up to date, so that does help, but seriously, I think this is a super-car, to have survived this long this well. Utterly great in snow, and we're in a snow-belt area, so we really know. Fantastic car.

Best Features

AWD is great. Instrument panel well-designed. Reliability is amazing.

Worst Features

Hopefully the stupid 1997 hubcap design has already been corrected in newer models.
