1999 Subaru Legacy GT Limited 30th Anniversary 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

It may sound weird. But it feels dated inside and out. More like 1994 Volkswagen Passat I used to have. It is a very reliable car, though I wish now that it had side curtain airbags. It has some innovative features like a weather radio which is neat. The most fun thing to do with the car is make it go through puddles. It has horrible gas mileage. I would expect the gas mileage from a 6 cylinder not a 4 cylinder.


Best Features

The weather radio


Worst Features

Update my car from 1994. Better fuel mileage

1999 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

Great car. I had to replace the valve cover gasket. That was pretty much it. Peppy, great on fuel economy.


Best Features

Automatic headlights. Mean fog lamps.


Worst Features

They did it: Variable intermittent wipers, intermittent rear wiper.

1999 Subaru Legacy Limited 30th Anniversary 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

I got this about 6 years ago for my wife. I loved it in 2002. Now, in 2008, 9 years later, boxy doesn't fit my cool image. I love the AWD but the styling sucks. It's a box! I do not like any imitation wood or ugly black plastic. It has some wind noise over 65 mph. I like that the Limited interior for its modern decade features like CD player and heated power leather seats. I wish I could have got the wagon after I got kids, but I changed my mind after I folded down the seats for the first time. Soccer moms come here! Over all it is a great vehicle, but do you and your cosmetic mind a favor: Year 2000 or up Subaru Legacy or Impreza.


Best Features

Modern features that lasted a decade. All wheel drive. Fold down seats.


Worst Features

Styling makeover. Thigh-support. Wind noise. Small backseat.

1999 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

We have owned our Subaru for 3 years now and we are much more than upside down in the actual value of the car. Five months after buying it the tranny quit, thankfully it was under warranty. Next, about a year later it was the radiator, water pump, some random hoses, cam shaft seals and we did the timing belt to be safe. The most recent repair and the most expensive, the heads and head gaskets! This is our second and most likely last subaru. Major lemon!


Best Features

Heated seats. AWD


Worst Features

The cupholders are in an awful spot. Hopefully the engine problem has been resolved

Review

I love this car!! It makes me feel like I am sixteen again. I look for any reason to go for a ride. It's fun to drive with its great ride. This car is also great on gas, very hot topic today with the high gas prices. Subaru did a great job with this car.


Best Features

I love how this car handles. Everything feels very tight. I also love how the car is so great on gas. Its very fun to drive.


Worst Features

It would be nice to have a little more horse power. My other vehicle has a V8 and I notice the difference. I would take the Subaru GT over the V8 any day when it comes to going to the gas pump.
