"this is my fourth Subaru. I started with a Brat, which I think was a 1972. Yeah, I'm an old codger, but I love cars and have owned many. (30+) Suby's are great, economical and perform well in snow, rain and icy conditions."

"My Subaru Legacy GT is such a trooper. The only problems I EVER had was due to my fluids neglect and luckily, still runs like a champ. I believe the quality building for this model is spot on and I hope to continue to own Legacys throughout my life."

Pros: "Reliable. Safe, Solid, and it GOES!"

Cons: "dash brd. layout & floor mats weren't great"

"My out back has been great! I feel safe in it (solid), reliable, nice amount of cargo area. I do not know engines, but the pickup when I step on the gas is one of those things that make me feel safe. The body has held up what I would say as great! under WI winters & humidity. One small bubble by rear hub, and only a couple of door scratches (not dings) that show no signs of rust. Not bad for a '98. Design wise: door map pocket need rain/snow protection, cupholder design sucks, smoother control panels would be easier to keep clean, grey fabric choice ugly. exterior paint color is kind of a peacock green, Awesome! air scoop on hood looks sporty but am not sure if it's functional ( all the guys like it :) removable cargo tray super. Big picture, GREAT CAR!"
