2002 Subaru Legacy Wagon GT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car new. Upgraded from '98 legacy. Added cold air intake, computer mod and short throw shifter. Short throw shifter best addition yet. Intake and computer brought HP to 200! Great power in 25k-55k RPM. Superior in blizzard conditions with 4pp, Snowbaords and gear. Almost 100k w/ no issues. 26mpg in city driving, now in FL and AC is cold as ice, and it turns heads. Black ACR rims w/ chrome strip, adds wonderful cornering capabilities.


Best Features

Dual Sunroofs, row-your-own transmission. Rare vehicle, plenty of space in trunk, great mileage.


Worst Features

Better door trim rain gutters. More stock power.

2002 Subaru Legacy Wagon GT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Have really enjoyed having and driving
this vehicle especially in snowy and
icy weather. It is comfortable,
handles extremely well and corners
like it was on rails. The heater warms
up quickly in cold weather adding to
the enjoyment of this vehicle.


Best Features

The AWD drive which makes for great handling.


Worst Features

Add a CD player

2002 Subaru Legacy Wagon GT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The motor went bad at 24000 miles. It
was a manufacturing flaw. AWD is very
nice. I have a manual and like to
shift but I wish the center
differential was an intelligent one
like on the automatics.


Best Features

The car drives and handles very nice. It feels solid inside, outside and when you drive it.


Worst Features

More power. Not tons, just about another 50-60. I also thought I would get a little better fuel economy, but the car is heavy.

Review

The performance of the 4 wheezing mice
just doesn't cut it. I actually
thought the car had a problem, and
brought it in for service - the service
manager stated that this was "just the
way it is with the newer Subarus,
because of the emissions control
requirements". This is, of course,
pure BS, as I have an even newer car
(from another manufacturer) that meets
emissions without this performance hit.

The performance is *so* bad that I was
going to upgrade to the 6cyl,
unfortunately, a drive in that
confirmed that this is a design issue,
and not an engine size problem.


Best Features

This car is fun to drive, and has great mileage.


Worst Features

The cheap plastics need to go: the car isn't even three, and half the plastic things in the care have either broken, cracked, or "depressed" (weird kind of sinking down effect - I've never seen this in my other Subarus). I think they just botched the 2002s.

Review

I started with a '98 GT, graduated to a '02. I miss the hood scoop and the
color white, but other than that, I like the car very much. The wife puts too
many miles on it, but it goes and goes and still goes some more. The kids
love it, the pep, the handling, etc. That took me some what by surprise,
because it is a wagon. We are just another happy family with a Subaru to
get around in.


Best Features

comfort, safety, and style.


Worst Features

Bring back the hood scoop, and the color white.
