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


My car has been very reliable, and the service records (I bought used) show no problems. Acceleration very good for a normally-aspirated H-4 engine and a 3400 lb car. Drove the H-6, but honestly did not think its acceleration and torque were that much better. AWD excellent, handling very good, and no problems with brakes. Interior is nice, but I have leather. Tune-ups are fairly easy. Re: other reviews: V6? Don't expect in Subarus because they use boxer engines. Upgrade interior? A $25K car will never have the tactile feel of a $40K car. There is some wind noise, seats could have more adjustment, but, again, IT'S A $25k CAR. As a package, hard to knock. Most auto reviewers like the Legacy GT.

Best Features

Side airbags, AWD, overall styling, boxer engine.

Worst Features

What is the point? Look at the new 2005 model. Subaru addressed the short-comings: new interior, new exterior styling, turbocharged the 2.5 H-4 engine, sport-shift trans. If I have to suggest something, perhaps fold-down rear seats and a one-touch switch for the sunroof would be nice.
