2003 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We went the Suba-route once the repairs
on our '90 Volvo 240DL wagon became
prohibitive. Many if not most of our
friends drive Subaru wagons (mainly
outbacks) and LOVE them. Unfortunately,
I don't.

The Legacy is quite a low rider, and
the interior design seems to hinder
visibility and is a bit cramped. I'm
not that tall (5'8") and I find the
driver's seat a bit snug. The interior
styling could be a touch more
sophisticated at this price point.

But on a positive note, it handles
wonderfully in poor weather.



Best Features

Moon roofs, leather seats, defrost capablities,


Worst Features

More interior seating space (rear), more height, better visibility -- really bad blind spots.

Review

I've been driving this car for a year,
and I love it. This is my first stick
in 10 years and I now remember why I
like them. Nice shifting, great
handling car. Very comfortable for 9
hour drives. My first (and ongoing)
impression is how smooth the car is.
My biggest complaints are the
peformance of the standard tires in the
snow (goes straight great, sporting in
the turns) and the lack of get up and
go when the a/c is on. The flat four
is a great engine; sounds funky and is
the only truly smooth 4 out there.


Best Features

AWD, Seats/driving position, handling, ride, quiet, standard shift, lack of chrome!


Worst Features

Dashboard styling, less shiny black plastic on the switches, replace the plood with something that looks sportier
