1998 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD


I bought the Suburu Legacy GT used from
a meticulous car owner over two years
ago and have driven it without any
hitches. The car now has over 90,000
miles and I've had no problems. I keep
it well maintained but otherwise drive
it hard.

The car handles a little heavy with a
bit of a tailspin if you push it hard
enough. The car isn't as nimble as my
previous lightweight coupe Eagle Tolon,
but it's five times more reliable. The
all-wheel drive reduces its fuel
efficiency and I probably average 20
mpg. Also, the engine noise can be
higher than most sedans especially over
4000 RPMs.

Best Features

You don't see many of these on the road and they are especially sporty for a sedan. Great all weather car that is perfect in the snow. Comfortable for tall people in the front and back seats.

Worst Features

slight reduction in engine noise, tighter suspension, better fuel efficiency
