1996 Subaru Legacy LS 4dr Sedan AWD


I bought this car new in 96 and have
amassed 133K+ miles. There was never
any major issues with this car. It has
been flawless in all weather elements,
especially in some recent brutal
Northeast snowstorms. And, with the
fold-down seats, it has held up well
for the weekend warrior Home Depot
trips. I will be trading the car in
today for a Mercedes E320 4Matic and
hope the new car will hold up as well
as this Subaru.

Best Features

Reliability (Cold, Hot, Rain, Snow). Great Gas Mileage. Fold-down rear seats. Very roomy for a car of this class.

Worst Features

Cup holder design - It's right in the middle of the dash, blocking the vent and radio controls. Light bulb behind vent controls went kept malfunctioning; eventually stopped fixing it.
