Watch those head gaskets
By joeysalazar1976 on


1997 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD


The Subaru brand, much like Saab come from airplane companies. The build quality and performance are amazing for the price. But repairs are expensive. The Subaru 2.5 is god awful for blowing head gaskets if you don't baby your car. But if you treat your car right, you will get to experience all wheel drive like no other car company can build for some reason. I have had a wrx and an outback, and both have been whips.

Best Features

All wheel drive handling that is better than its weight. Everything on car is really really tight and solid. Like a German or Japanese car.

Worst Features

Fix the head gasket issue!!!
