1999 Legacy 2.5 Gt. — There was nothing to dislike only high miles. Drove from PortlandOregon to Roseburg oregon on 6 gallons and she had 225,000 miles. I added seafoam and Chevron super. That's 30mpg. I wish now I would not have trader her in. Now I am getting into a Year newer Outback limited.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Got 30 mpg once

Cons: 226,000 miles

The Perfect Family Car! —

With the birth of my first child early this year I realized that my 2-door Civic SI just wasn't gonna cut it anymore. I found the Subaru by accident--paid $3k for a Legacy L Wagon with 155k on the clock. I am the second owner--the first was a mechanic with a successful shop in town and a pilot--the car was kept in an aircraft hangar its whole life and was driven when the owner flew in. So it has NO rust. The mechanic replaced the trans 12k miles ago and the t-belt/pulleys/water pump at 105k. It's my first Subaru and I am DARN impressed. TONS of little touches that make driving it fun. With this vehicle I can honestly say that I will own nothing but Subarus for LIFE...it's that good. If you find one at a really good price do NOT hesitate--have a mechanic look at it and BUY IT. That being said, once the summer is truly over (the Subie has great A/C) I will be using my Honda to get to work and back...the fuel economy of the Honda is FAR better. I'll let my wife have the Subie to cart my son around.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Stone reliable, plenty of power, AWD works amazingly well, cheap to own, clever seats allow you to make a perfectly-flat BED in the rear, too many things to list really.

Cons: Fuel economy (23MPG), torque, ease of serviceability

1999 Subaru Legacy 250t — Its lowered and 4wd so it handles well. Done 220k so performance has dropped off a bit. Well build and very comfortable to drive. Great stereo but uses a bit too much fuel now. Overall I love Subies and this is a decent one. Will go back to the turbo version next time

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Its looks awesome. Lowered on nice mags.

Cons: Uses to much fuel and the gearbox is struggling after 220k.

Great Big Estate Best Car I Have Had So Far — living in scotland with the scottish weather the way it is and the very poor road conditons, my subaru (big baby) i feel is the safest and most practical car to own.the poor mpg goes out the window when the winter hits and i can still get to work everyday,when outhers that rely on public transport have to take time of. overall car looks and drives great.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great allrounder does what ever i need it to do with ease

Cons: poor mpg petrol 2.5l awd gx eastate

She's A Sleeper. — Basically stock besides engine swap. Stock exterior and interior. Performance is pretty amazing. 266 awhp and 260 lb/tq. before turbo and fuel upgrade. Suspension is similar to that of a Cadillac, she floats. This will change in the near future.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it does wheelies

Cons: transmissions

Love This Car! — I absolutely love this car. I took it to Illinois and back the summer with no problems what-so-ever. It's fairly cheap to drive since the gas mileage is so good. It handles great in the snow and is very comfortable. What more could I ask for?

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good gas mileage, very stable, durable body, comfortable seats.

Cons: It has about 260,000 and needs a transmission now.

Not As Reliable As The Toyota, But More Soul — Love the syling. Love the look of a wagon. Manual + 4 cyl + AWD is win in my book. So far I have had to make extensive repairs. Engine has been replaced, brakes will need to be done, rear window wiper is gone, clunk in front end, list goes on and on. 230k on the clock so what can I expect ?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Manual Tranny + AWD + 4 cyl

Cons: Repair costs
