I've owned 9 other Subaru's. Each Subaru had over 200000 miles on them and ran incredibly well. I now own a 2001 Legacy GT Limited and have had nothing but problems since day one. The first month I had the vehicle, I had lost my brakes. The pedal wouldn't even move at all. This happened twice. Dealer "fixed" the problem each time. Since then I've blown my engine because the head gaskets. There are SO MANY other issues I've had since purchasing this vehicle. I hope this helps anyone looking at one. I WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER SUBARU AS LONG AS I LIVE!!!
Easy resale now that I have a new engine.
Go back to the older engines, tranny's and transfer cases. These cars used to last 200,000 miles, but couldn't keep the body in tact. Now, you're lucky if you get 75,000 miles without serious mechanical issues. Hey, at least the body finally stays in tact. Want to put a Toyota drive train in now.
