1996 Subaru Legacy GT 4dr Wagon AWD


Purchased this vehicle as a lease turn-
in. What a GREAT car!!! Fit and
finish are excellent. The leather
interior is quite comfortable and shows
little wear after 8 years and 140,000
miles of ownership. While I have been
fairly attentive to "normal" service
intervals, I would be remiss to say
that this car owes me nothing!! I have
replaced the brake pads all arond twice
and the front rotors once (at Subaru).
Other than that (also changed the
timing belt at 90G as precaution), the
only other service the car needed was a
Thermostat (stuck open) at 136,000
miles. This is my 5th Subaru. I will
drive it until it is dead, and then I'm
going to buy another one.

Best Features

Styling, Performance and Braking. Comfortable and spacious cabin. All controls are easily readable and accessible.

Worst Features

WISH SUBARU HAD NOT STOPPED THE TURBO AT THE TIME. They have since mended the errors of their ways!
