1997 Subaru Legacy GT 4dr Sedan AWD


I bought this car over e-bay at 85k
and I now have 104k on it. I've spent
$2500 since then for all the normal
stuff (brakes, tires, struts, timing
belt, ect,). It lives outside and
since I'm always in a hurry, I drive
it hard. So far, it has taken all my
abuse in stride. Since it has the 5-
speed, it can be fun to drive. The
ride is rough, but it handles well.
The rear fenders have started to rust
where the wheel well meets the rear
bumper. This may be due to poor care
on the 1st owners part. No other

Best Features

AWD is great. As long as you have good tires and you don't bottom the car out, you can make it through any snow storm. Lots of leg room for back seat passanges. Good trunk space. Sporty look for a 4-door. Nice wide tires. Does not use oil.

Worst Features

Better milage. Less noise. Softer ride. Bigger cup holder!
