Very reliable ride!

2000 Subaru Legacy Sedan L 4dr Sedan AWD

Review

I bought this vehicle new in summer of 2000. It has proven to be a very well made and reliable car. The only glitch has been an engine knock sensor that malfunctioned at 70,000 miles and had to be replaced. This repair cost less than $125. Otherwise, I replaced the tires and performed scheduled maintenance. Feels like a sports car to drive! Goes great in snow and ice with all weather, siped tires, but this Sedan has lower ground clearance than the Outback, so 8" or more of snow can be difficult.

Same clutch

Review

Hello, we have a Legacy L wagon bought new. It is still the original clutch! 80% is city driving. Comfort is bad, but I like this car. Super great on the snow, 160 hp is plenty, just have to use the shifter. We replaced: an injector, timing belt (maintenance) relay switch for fuel pump and torsion bar that broke on a dirt road. This is an incredible reliability record. However we will not buy another one because of not so good fuel mileage. My daughter will learn to drive with this car.

It's an OK car

Pretty sluggish vehicle, but handles well with the AWD, and will go anywhere. Have had numerous problems with the suspension and brake systems. Canít complain about mileage (25 avg) since it is all-time AWD.

No weaknesses

Review

With a 5speed and taut handling it is very fun to drive. Fuel economy is decent considering ALL FOUR WHEELS are being driven ALL THE TIME. This is what pushes Subarus to the head of the pack in Alaska, and accounts for their well-deserved ubiquity. Standard ABS (unlike Honda and Toyota), another Alaskan-friendly feature that dramatically improves stopping performance on ice. Typically unassailable Japanese reliabiliy round out the package. AWD costs $10K more from VW/Audi, plus their reliability is the pits and you have to let the tranny shift for you (on the Passat 4motion)! I think not!

Do it all car

Review

Good car, better priced than some; the Legacy upgrade in 2000 was excellent...a far better car than the 1999. Better engine appreciated, as it's still a bit underpowered, but zippy enough in sedan form. Interior exponentially better; gas mileage not good at all for this size car...I've never come close to their 'estimates.' AWD works great in snow, as touted, super all-weather car...in warm climates, a different car is probably better, just for the gas mileage alone. A ruggedly handsome car, does everything well...very versatile. Legacy sedan peppier and slicker than the Forester, but you give up some cargo room.
