1997 Subaru Legacy GT 4dr Sedan AWD


I love the all-wheel drive all year round. It really works on wet rainy roads
along with snow and ice. Car has good power and handles excellently. The
Build quality and interior quality are on par with other Japanese cars. Had
the alternator replaced on a recall. I had the same problem of the lights
going out on the heater control panel. I bought 3 new bulbs (I didn't need all
3 but thought I would change them all while I had it apart) and replaced them
in about an hour. I reccomend the 2.5 liter motor because it has a better
maintenance schedule (spark plugs at 60,000 vs. 30,000 and timing belt at
115,000 vs. 60,000).

Worst Features

Bridgestone tires it comes with are not a good tire, but the car still handled well. After switching to Dunlop SP SPort A2 tires the improvement was incredible.
