I just bought a 96 legacy wagon for 500 bucks. its an automatic with all wheel drive. When I hit the gas it will burn out with the front wheels. I have never heard of that happening on an all-wheel drive car. can anyone shed some light on this for me? it definatly is all-wheel drive because everything is there for it and it has am AWD badge.

Check the FWD fuse under the hood. Its for towing or driving with your spare. If the fuse is there, remove it for AWD. Do you see a FWD light on your dash? I also believe the power split varies 70-90 front and 10-30 rear. All my tires peel out on demand in the snow though, I call it "hover car mode"
