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

Review

I bought the car new in 2000, performed all dealer service as scheduled, have had numerous problems with head gasket, transfer seal, and cam seal oil leaks. I bought the car expecting to get 200,000+ miles out of it, and started having oil leaks at 45,000 miles. Dealer has tried to repair numerous times, with no success. Every Subaru owner with whom I speak says the head gaskets are a known issue. I would never buy a Subaru again, and am looking to ditch this one as soon as possible, taking a huge loss in depreciation.

Favorite Features

None.

Suggested Improvements

Reliability, Head gaskets, Transfer seals, Cruise control bushings, etc.
