1995 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD


A plain, unassuming car, but very reliable overall. AWD is handy, esp. in ice/snow. Disappointing gas mileage for a 4 cyl. Cup holder an abject failure. Horizontally opposed 4 (get the 2.2, not the 2.5) is dated but very reliable. (Thank you, Dr. Porsche, for the concept). Auto. trans. is a balky Borg-Warner unit. Ugh. Shades of Rambler. Car is too low slung, but corners well. I installed a cut-out switch to select FWD or AWD, which helps with fuel economy. (Why did Subaru eliminate that feature?). One of those cars which, despite its faults, grows on you, and is a worthy ride. My next car will have to compensate for the Legacy's plain vanilla persona. Perhaps a Caprice Police Interceptor?

Best Features

AWD, flat four engine, good sound system, sturdy unibody, overall reliability.

Worst Features

Re-design cup holder. Auto. trans. needs upgrade. Improve fuel economy. More space between gas and brake pedals. Raise front seats 3". Bring back selector switch for AWD/FWD. Re- design rear seat fold-down.
