278,000 miles - remarkable car
By Happy engineer on


1990 Subaru Legacy LS 4dr Wagon


I bought this car used at a price of $
7,000, ten years ago. Now the odometer
is up to 278,000 miles and the engine
is still purring, economical... and not
a trace of smoke, transmission issues
or any old age problem. We had a few
repairs including seal replacements,
wear parts and gaskets,CV's,
alternators (2), drive belts and
pulleys, pump (2) and my own
recharging air cond - and now a couple
of small rust spots appear on side of

I've been careful to use best test
rated friction reducing oil additives.

Quite low cost per mile for such a
roomy and comfortable transportation?

Finally must take it to charity
donation -not due to problems.

Best Features

Longevity, engine, cost of ownership, roomy

Worst Features

Wish new Subaru's were cheaper today
