1997 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD


I love this car. Bought it with 223,000 miles on it. Redid the cam seals, timing belt, fuel pump, fuel filters and put a new head on it. It now preforms as a new car only at the $3000 I paid for it and with the $1500 I spent to re work it. I feel as though I have a $10-15000 car and I expect to get 400,000 miles with it easy, with regular oil changes and belts. I rate it a 9.25 now. For $4500 find anything better. Let me know, I will take 10 of them. Hope this helps. Only fault as of now - check engine light is on due to fuel heat sensor unit is bad. Being able to do the work myself it does not bother me. I would drive to Alaska.

Best Features

It is a Subaru and performs VERY well and is quite safe, built with safety in mind.

Worst Features

Fuel sensor light malfunctions. Needs to be 1-2" more ground clearance for me but I drive off road.
