2002 Subaru Legacy GT AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
I bought my 2002 Subaru Legacy GT Sedan Automatic used (36k). Since then, I have had every service performed, including oil changed every 3500 miles. At 92k miles I had to replace the head gaskets (both sides) $1800. At 120k miles the moon roof computer went out (probably used 3 times a year $500) At 126k miles it spun the #3 Rod Bearing and damaged the Crankshaft. ($4300) - the dealer stocks the short block which tells me they are having LOTS of problems with this motor. This car has never been neglected or abused and always had factory parts as replacement. I am very disappointed in this purchase and now I have no car because it's motor blew and it's at the repair shop with no money to fix it
Sound System - Wheels - Cruise control - overall exterior look of car
The wind noise is terrible! Blowing head gaskets at 92k - fix it! Blowing a motor with impeccable maintenance records - big problem!
