My Second Subaru
By Sirstinky on


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


I bought this with 69k miles and so far I put a little over 1000 on it. My 1991 has 190,000 miles on it and still runs good so I got another one. So far so good. This is a very good-looking wagon. I love the awd. Good brakes and handling. It's not too loud inside (there's the common Subaru wind noise) and the ride is smooth. So far no head gasket issues, but the engine has a noisy lifter now when cold and the transmission could be better. Jerky shifts when cold, and it upshifts/downshifts slowly when you need it to. The interior looks good and is solidly-built. Not many squeaks or rattles for 70K miles. Gas mileage bad in city driving 19-21 mpg.

Best Features

Worst Features

Questionable reliability Noisy lifter when cold Re-design transmission More HP Quieter drivetrain Get rid of pillar-less door frames for less wind noise
