2001 Subaru Impreza Wagon L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I wish I could write a great review of the Three Subi’s I’ve owned however, per my experience I’m not able to.
Subaru has major major major design, engineering, assembly, and supplier parts quality issues.
Here is my experience.
1999 Outback about 40,000 miles head gaskets blow.
Several thousand for a new engine (yea sometimes the heads and block will warp when the head gaskets blow) car totaled.
2001 about 500 miles head gaskets blow.
Another engine about 40,000 miles spun bearing.
Run only Mobil 1 every 3-5,000 miles oil change. Car totaled.
1997 outback 20 miles yep 20 miles head gaskets blow.
All Three were the EJ25 4 cyl engine.


Best Features

All wheel drive.


Worst Features

Bring back the unique styling of the 2002 to 2005. All the current models say "me to"... Greatly improve your design, engineering, and supplier parts quality.

2001 Subaru Impreza Wagon Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The model year after this one - 2001
and beyond - has more leg room in the
back seat. Only complaint I have about
this car is not much back seat room.
But the sporty styling in the 2001
model year is much perferable to the
more sedan conventional style look of
the 2202 and beyond


Best Features

AWD, heating/cooling, sporty exterior styling, good handling


Worst Features

tighter turning radius, more leg room in the back seat.

2001 Subaru Impreza Wagon L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought a Legacy wagon as a snow car
since I go to work on very twisty,
hilly roads that are icy and frequently
covered in more than 12 inches of snow.

I never even noticed the snow or rain.

The car also carried my Samoyed dog in
the back with its dog gate.

I could get large objects like doors
with the door frame into
the car completely inside the car.

It always ran, started and it could fo
95 without any problems on the highway.

It also had fantastic resale value. I
paid 19.5 and after 3 years I received
13.5 with a slightly damaged bumper.


Best Features

go in snow, carry lots of stuff, carry big dog, very low depreciation.


Worst Features

More power, and it should come with a CD player. Also the Subaru alarm is very annoying.

Review

My first time purchasing Subaru and
used vehicle. The decision was
based on Clark Howard
recommendation, who favors used
car over new. Was originally thinking
about WRX. Nice-looking exterior
and sturdy machine to operate
during rainy weather though it has
not been tested in inclement
condition due to persistently sunny
days in Oregon!?


Best Features

Pretty quiet for 2.2 L engine.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. More cup holder for the front seat. Standard equipment radio can be better.
