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

Review

I bought a 5 speed Legacy L wagon in August 2001. I had driven a 1995 Brighton for years. I put very few miles (3100 in almost 9 months!) on the car as I commute by bicycle most of the time. In many ways, the 2001 seems to be more shoddily constructed than my '95. The clutch is grabby, it has an odd groan in the steering when executing tight, low-speed maneuvers, the paint has a lot of orange peel, the wheels were unbalanced, the driver's door really takes a slam to get it to shut, and the fuel filler door is misaligned.

Best Features

Very smooth, supple ride. Good handling characteristics, AWD when you need it.

Worst Features

Build quality is an issue, it feels pretty sluggish Also, compared to our'95 Camry, the interior feels pretty cramped. Three kid's carseats/boosters hardly fit. I hate to say it, but I regret buying it.
