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

Review

I bought this car with 60,000 miles from a graduating med student and so got an amazing price. It's a great car and a nice change from my old ford ranger. AWD is amazing the engine is peppy unless the a/c is on then in drags a bit and has to be punched up a bit to accelerate. Has no glaring problems. Windshield does whistle a bit with crosswinds and it has a strange rattle noise during low end acceleration sometimes but still runs perfectly. It corners like it's on rails .

Best Features

The AWD and low center of gravity make for fun driving Next time i'll probably opt for the 227 or 250 hp version b/c the 165 is a bit slow when beating someone off the line. 22-28 mpg with an automatic AWD car? beats the snot out of a 14 mpg 2WD ranger that cornered like a bathtub.

Worst Features

There are many options available including the cd player and moonroof and foglights etc. So i guess the windshield noise and cheaper turbo chargers.
