2003 Subaru Legacy L Special Edition AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My son has owned 3 Subarus, including the sporty XT6, and sold me on the reliability and engineering of this car. I'm very pleased with the handling on mountain curves, and solidness of the body. The engine needed about 10 - 15 extra ponies, which I helped along with a cold air induction kit from Injen. Now, those wanting more power - look for the 2005 turbo! Ths is a fun car to drive, has great interior colors, and is a great engineering piece. Love it!


Best Features

Handling - like on a railroad track.


Worst Features

Turbo!

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


Review

I bought this car because it made the most sense for me - lots of room and all wheel drive for only $17,500. What I failed to take into account was the "fun to drive" factor. Let's be honest - this car is boring to look at and to drive. The all-wheel-drive is great, but it drains all the power that the engine has to offer. The power band on the car is really strange as well. The engine sounds great up to 3500 RPM and above 4500 RPM, but between those two limits, it sounds awful. Lastly, the drivers seat is very uncomfortable on long drives. I prefer a hard seat with lumbar support.


Best Features

Reliability and go anywhere all-wheel- drive.


Worst Features

Better seats, smoother clutch, and will somebody please put a turbocharger on the engine!

Review

Having parents that have owned two Subaru's for years and hearing how great a car they build, we decided to go out and buy one. After owning the car for a little over a year now, I can honestly tell you this is the best car I've owned. I am NOT a family car type of guy and I love driving this car. From the solid Subaru build quality to the All-Wheel drive and the suprisingly well cornering ability. The list goes on and on. At around $20,000 this car is a steal.


Best Features

The All-Wheel Drive, of course. Subaru reliability.


Worst Features

Remote trunk release, Intermittent windshield wipers, The engine could use about 20-30 more ponies.
