1992 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD


Hard to imagine a more suitable car for snow country. The AWD works flawlessly. Wife bought it new in '92, she bought a new Outback in '02 and the kids still drive this one. Maintenance is a snap. BUT has always pinged on regular gas - and only a few premiums work well so fuel costs are higher than they should be. Now my kids are fighting over who gets Mom's old car. It's peeling paint in a few spots, but still starts and runs very well. One of them will have a GREAT 2nd car.

Best Features

AWDrive is effective and seamless on automatic. AM/FM cassette still works. Everything still works - the cruise, the rear wiper, the air. It's just a solid little car -- well engineered and well built.

Worst Features

The premium gas problem was resolved by the time we got our new 2002 Outback. It runs well on regular anything. That has been our biggest headache and unexpected expense. Paint started peeling pretty early on; cosmetic problem only - no rusting corrosion.
