2001 Subaru Legacy Sedan GT AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my legacy just a few weeks ago. And talk about a big mistake. It has 180,000 miles on it and yes i know thats alot but the dealer clames they will run 280,000 easy. When i bought the car it had its normal subaru noises in it. And just today the rear of my transmission went out of it. No warning no nothing just a loud crack and then the rear of the trans binding. This car is JUNK. first and last one ill ever own.


Favorite Features

Somewhat fast. Sounds good with a little purr in the exhaust


Suggested Improvements

Build it better next time around. Or just dont buy one

2001 Subaru Legacy Sedan GT AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car used in 2002 with 11,000 miles. Now has 120,000. Has been very reliable. Replaced the clutch and viscous coupler at 110,000. Otherwise, just regular maintenance. Could use more power, but the 165 hp is adequate and gets decent gas mileage. Handles very well for a sedan. The AWD is great in rain.


Favorite Features

Very reliable, decent gas mileage, fun to drive for a sedan.


Suggested Improvements

Wind noise around mirrors at highway speed.

Review

I tow my small 500lb sailboat with it. Pack all my sailing/camping gear in it, climbed some of the longest grades with weekend gear no problem. The breaks have been great, no warped discs at 65,000. Finally a car with adequate breaks. Engine has been bullet proof with synthetic oil every 5000 miles. Factory Tires have proven to be cost effective and reasonably durable considering the type and cost of the tire. Handling: There aren't very many 4-door sedans for less than $30,000 that claw through corners like the GT Legacy. MPG: Without a bike rack on top 32MPG per tank at 70-75mph. With bike rack, 28-30 MPG. With boat in tow 25-28 MPG.


Favorite Features

Handling in the curves A+ Gas milege A+ Bullet proof engine A++ Comfort A Comfort: Back seat never fails to impress passengers, front seats are pretty good. Factory Sound system 6Disc in dash is still a favorite thing for my music guru brother to play with.


Suggested Improvements

Could use slightly stiffer springs. A slight increase in ground clearance would be nice. Not much! Just a little.
