98 Legacy L Wagon, 5spd - College Car
By BB in Anacortes on


1998 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD


We bought this Subuie from our neighbor who bought it new. When we bought it it had 65K miles and was complete with maintenance records and sales slip to day 1. We replaced the timing belt early (and water pump) just because it was close to time and it was 10 years old. This car has been very good for our college student who lives 370 miles away in eastern Washington state. Fully loaded with college stuff and 2 people it gets 30mpg highway and we get about 23 in town. The 2.2 is a good little motor and sufficient for this car. This year we put on 4 wheel snow tires and it goes in the snow with no complaints.

Best Features

Basic gas and oil maintenance, excellent reliability.

Worst Features

Some of the plastic interior bits could have been better and the metal window trim has the black paint or plastic covering all peeling off.
