Great awd car that thinks it's an SUV
By pasublvr on


1996 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD


After years of owning American made SUVs, and still wanting the roominess and 4wd of one, I settled on this. I am single and have no children, so friends and family thought I was crazy at first, but what a great car it has turned out to be! Am trading it in, 80k miles and no major repairs later, for a much newer Outback tomorrow.

Best Features

AWD, AWESOME fuel economy, comfortable, even for a guy who is 6'5", 275 lbs.

Worst Features

More power is needed, when loaded down to go to camp for a few days, doesn't have any passing power at all. Trade- off for fuel economy I guess. Drove v8 Explorers before this though.
