1997 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD


Initially we were in the honeymoon
stage...Then constantly needing brakes
or making brake sounds..replace the AT
clutch cylinder ($1200) various smoking
dripping oils even after replacing
different seals, gaskets, etc. Now
strange suspension sounds and like many
where is the heater light?? I Never
even knew there was one!!
It has been handy in the snow & I love
not having to stop & chain up though it
is not infallible. Never buy dark blue
if you live on a dirt road. Noisey
inside, sounds cheap & always head an
engine ticking sound.

Best Features

Other than oil leaks, engine has been sound (I am crossing my fingers)

Worst Features

Fix the premature oil leak problems. Don't think I would buy another one.
