1997 Subaru Legacy 4 Dr Outback AWD Wagon Review
Everything - mainly awd, hood scoop, and butt warmers
Large repairs and maintenace cost a lot
Got Me Through Norther Ontario Roads For 6 Years - 0r 320,000km — Purchased it used with 93,000km on it, left it at the dealer 6.5 years later with 410,000km on the odometer. Butt warmers, all wheel drive, and hoodscoup. Fun and comfortable car to drive. For four years i travelled the 144 between Timmins and Sudbury - any weather any time, this machine will go. On that little highway people dispise because of it's narrow, curvy road, rock cliff, moose, and lack of fellow drivers to help you in case of need, i would set the cruise control betwee 105-110km and let it ride for 3 hours to Timmins like i was going through the desert. Later i did the North Bay -Timmins run - not as exciting but stil some challenges. I sadly left this car at the dealer to purchase a new Imprezza (same car but smaller and even more fun to drive).
1997 Subaru Legacy 4 Dr LSi AWD Wagon Review
Handles like a normal car, a more than normal car, it looks great, it brakes excellent
It's a station wagon, acceleration not terrific, compared to say a Rocket, but it is a station
For A Station Wagon It Does Pretty Well — I love this car, i love the way it grips the corner like a obese man would grip onto the last hamburger in the world. I love the fact that it does what you want it to do you just feel like you have complete controls of the car the whole time. I love the fact that the car is over ten years old and it doesn't look it at all. If any mother was looking for a station wagon for her kids then this would be it but also if even a teen age adult like my self, can own a car like this and not fell like an idiot driving a station wagon.
