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


Review

We have driven a 1996 Legacy Brighton 5 speed 120K miles, and just purchased a 2002 Legacy L wagon wi 5 speed. Subaru's strategy has been to make many improvements on a good base car instead of running wi short cycle of major reengineering and redesign. Like VW's strategy of the 60s and 70s, this has allowed Fuji Heavy Industries to spread major design and tooling costs over longer multiyear production runs. The benefits of this strategy, wi modest yen depreciation, reflected in value. Our 1996 Brighton cost us $15300 with self financing. 2002 L Wagon with the improvements and added standard equipment noted below cost us $18500 with 1.9 percent 24 month financing.


Best Features

As always, AWD and wagon are biggies. Improvements include larger engine wi more torque & hp, more refined interior, better cupholders, improved instrument pod PLUS adding ABS, power locks, power windows, cruise control, tachometer, roof rails and tonneau cover as standard rather than options.


Worst Features

Manual transmission remains a little vague. Shifting could be more fun and easier. Larger engine comes at expense of fuel economy.

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


Review

We just picked up our 2nd Subaru last week for only $17,827. For that price we got ABS, AWD, wagon bodystyle, AM/FM/cassette, A/C, cruise, keyless, power windows, power locks, power steering, power mirrors, and carpets. Nothing can match the features for the price. The car feels solid and smooth, and was delivered with zero flaws. It's roomy, quiet, comfortable, and was best in class in IIHS crash tests. It's fun and practical. Warranty is better than Honda. Materials better than average for the class, too.


Best Features

AWD, ABS, keyless, cruise, power everything, tons of cargo space.


Worst Features

They should offer the H6 with a 5 speed and on a more affordable model. Or the turbo Blitzen models that are available in Japan.
