Expected better

1998 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD


Was expecting "great," but only got "average." Two oil leaks - one at 15K and another at 95K miles. This car seems to run best when used primarily on the highway - lots of city driving adversely affects engine performance for some reason. Driver seat padding is not firm enough and wears thin after 2+ hours of sitting/driving. AWD works very well and mileage is pretty good at 21/29.

Best Features

AWD. Cargo capacity is pretty good.

Worst Features

Better dash design and cupholder location. Oil leaks too frequent.
