1997 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD


This car is great in the snow and Vermont mud season (we live out on three miles of dirt road). My wife is more comfortable driveing this car than our 4wd drive pick-up truck. we bought the car with 70,000 miles on it and the car just seems to go for ever. we are now at 150,000 miles with only minor expected repaires. Definitely the most sturdy and reliable car I have ever owned. I get 28-32 miles per gallon with the manual trans.

Best Features

All wheel drive, large area for hauling stuff, reliablity, fuel economy

Worst Features

Move the cup holders away from the heater controls, more options on wiper controls, nicer seats with more support
