1997 Subaru Legacy L Wagon 2.2 from North America
Quality EJ22 engine
CV joint, alternator/battery, throttle position sensor, brake pads.
The rear wiper seized up and never worked.
A very good car.
Decent ride, pretty good pep for a four cylinder. Quality engine and transmission.
I wish I was still driving it today -- death by collision.
You can tow 1 ton pretty easily with these babies too. The manufacturer recommend electric brakes, but I thought it did fine without.
Living in Ohio, this is the best vehicle I've driven. It's good and heavy, low to the ground. In three winters I never got stuck.
All and all, original engine and auto transmission that may have made it to 300k miles. I averaged about 23 MPG mixed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
