Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Subaru Legacy estate?

Although Subaru has a great reputation for reliability, Warranty Direct says the Legacy hasn't performed as well as many of the company's models for overall reliability, with engine problems accounting for the majority of repairs.

Other causes for concern are the heating and cooling systems and fuel pump problems. We've also heard reports of clutch and gearbox problems on later cars.

Whatever the problem, if the car is out of warranty the subsequent bills will probably be expensive, as repairs are complex and the spare parts are expensive. Make sure you get a car with a full service history.
