1997 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD


This is the 2nd Legacy GT sedan I've
owned and both have been solid rides.
The interior is laid out well and
functions well. I live in Wisconsin
and you can't beat the AWD for making
sure you can get around in the
I have the 5-speed and it beats the
automatic, but more power would make
this a GREAT car.

Best Features

AWD, slick looking car, comfortable and well-positioned driver's seat. Always loved the thick, leather- wrapped steering wheel. Great hwy cruiser.

Worst Features

Kick the power up closer to 200 hp, and you've really got something. Without it, it's more sporty-looking than sporty. Minor issue- also need to solve the driver's window scratch problem; had those replaced now in 2 Legacys due to dirt getting on the pads inside the door.
