1999 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD


The Subaru did well for the first 5
years of ownership but at 86,000 it
started to fall apart. We've put in
new wheel bearings, clutch, and
transmission in the last 6000 miles
but still have major problems. I
really expect a car in this price
range to last longer. I'm told by my
local mechanic that the AWD feature
causes transmissions to fail sooner
than in 2D and 4D vehicles.

Best Features

Excellent power from a 4 cyclinder engine

Worst Features

Needs a more rugged transmission
