1998 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD


I have 2 of these cars. One has an
automatic, the other a 5 speed. The 5
speed car has 165,500 miles with no
major failures. I live in snow country
and it is a great car for the snow. It
is extremely economical to operate and
has held up rather well. Would I
recommend a Subaru? You bet. If you want
a mid to lower priced 4wd car that is
built like a tank, then this is your
ride. It has all the creature comforts
you could ask for. A+++++++

Best Features

Great gas milage, unbelievable endurance, good workmanship, great engineering.

Worst Features

They fixed their stupidity concerning shaving the cylinder skirts in 2000. It makes an anoying noise when cold, but has since 90,000 with no ill effects. The cloth interior could have been scotch gaurded, so I would suggest covers. With studs it is hard to beat in bad weather.
