Could have been great, but...

Vehicle2002 Subaru Legacy GT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThe 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 FeaturesThis car is fun to drive, and has great mileage.
Worst FeaturesThe 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.
