1994 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD


I bought my Legacy Ti Outdoor Wagon new in 1994 and have been the sole driver. I put a lot of upstate NY winter miles on it, and warmer climate too, it's over 200,000 miles now and still going. No engine trouble ever. Replaced some CV joints a few times, brakes and clutch once, heater core once. Air suspension was the only part with high maintenance needs; while useful it's understandable why they discontinued that. Performance + mpg have both always been better than sticker. Minor ergonomic issues with the interior. Cost doesn't justify major repairs at this point but I'm keeping it until it falls apart. Nothing made today could replace it's utility, fun, and reliability under $50K.

Best Features

Responsive and rock-solid H4 engine, safety features, roomy cargo area. Air suspension utility for off-paved road use. Easy access to almost all user-serviceable parts (except heater core) for even semi-skilled home mechanics.

Worst Features

Cheaper repairs and/or higher long- term reliability for air suspension. Easier removal of dashboard to replace lights, heater core. Move cup holders out of way of radio. Separate recirculate and AC buttons rather than single Max AC button.
