1998 Subaru Legacy GT Limited 4dr Sedan AWD


This in my opinion "midsized" sedan is a heavy, heavy beast, that you will LOVE to drive. Extremely stout, excellent in rain sleet snow or shine, I've put 170,000 miles on mine with only one issue, head gaskets. Thats not as bad as it sounds. 800 dollars at 120k and going FINE for another 50k... so far! Also handles like a dream. My previous car was a fully loaded eagle talon tsi awd. I thought that handled well and i had it lowered! This car puts it to shame. I have nothing but good to say about my legacy. I regularly get 28mpg... 40% city 60% highway. They also look great with some 17" wheels and a slight height drop.

Best Features

awd, handling, decent pep, great fuel economy for awd, responsive transmission, even though i hate automatics. nice styling, solid build.

Worst Features

cup holders suck. engine should have been turbo these years. other than that, nothing.
