2000 Subaru Legacy GT 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

I bought this car new and it has had its problems. I like the ride and the power is good although I agree that the engine runs too fast at higher speeds. This car could use a better gearing spread or a sixth gear. Here's the list of the car's problems: bad electrical harness, replaced under warranty; leaking sunroofs replaced under warranty 2 times, broken front swaybar, not under warranty; rear sunroof shade won't move in its track, not under warranty, and I have just started to notice a steering shimmy that does not bode well.


Best Features

It's a comfortable car that handles well. The cargo space is great. I love the AWD.


Worst Features

The reliability must be improved; this car has had too many things go wrong in it's first five years. I would ideally like to keep this car for 7-10 years but I don't know if it will make it that long.

Review

The gearing makes the 165 hp legacy GT
feel quick and responsive. It's
definitely lower geared which makes it
accelerate aggressively but also
results in the engine running at
higher RPM at speed, e.g. 3750 rpm @
80 mph. It could use a 6 speed
transmission. Even at that speed/rpm
the interior is quiet and the ride is
smooth. The car handles beautifully
and easily outcorners everything else
in its price range. Overall the car
feels very sporty and is a fun vehicle
to drive.


Best Features

AWD, quick accereration, responsive and handles excellently


Worst Features

6 speed transmission, more horsepower - it would be nice to have the WRX motor available.

Review

I love the looks and practicality of my
Subaru Legacy wagon. However, I have
already had to have the transmission
replaced ($5,000 item at 49,000 miles),
head gasgets, brakes, heat shield, the
moon roof leaked into the interior
light. Thank goodness it is has all
been on warrenty, but I bought it
thinking that it would be a work horse
for many years. The dealer has worked
hard to make me happy--but I really
don't trust the car but don't want to
incur another car payment now that this
is just about paid off.


Best Features

I love the lines of the car--I think it is very pleasing asthetically. I love the wagon.


Worst Features

Light the key area. Move the seat belt latchs so they are not so deep in the seat.

Review

If you are considering this vehicle be
very wary of the stock Bridgestone
Potenza tires and interior trim
quality. My vehicle began suffering
fron bubling and craks in the door
trim and centre arm rest. Also fit and
finish is well below standard for a
vehicle of this price. Watch for
problems with leaky sunroofs as well.
I was told by the dealer that they are
common due to dirt accumulating in a
drain tube in the sunroof assemly. Fun
to drive but not worth the money!


Best Features

AWD is flawless


Worst Features

Better fit and finish and higher qaulity materials on interior finish

Review

Overall a solid car, both inside and out. The
exterior finish of car is outstanding, while the
interior is above average. The simplicity of
using the controls in the car suggests a well
designed layout. The lumbar seat for the
driver is wonderful for long trips. The AWD
was one of the main selling points for this
car. The AWD is rock solid, and cars like the
VW passat, Audi A4 and Volvo charge
$1000.00's when comparing with Legacy
GT.


Best Features

Dual Moonroof. The back seats have so much more light with the roof. AWD and exterior looks of car. Great Paint job


Worst Features

It would be nice if the GT version had an engine with about 20% more go. It's a great engine, but lacks in power at times.
