2003 Subaru Legacy L Special Edition AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
This car has been rock solid. Over 150,000 miles and counting. The review that talks about the shifting, just drop into 3rd on the automatic in-town; the 4th gear is overdrive for the highway...read the manual! The head gaskets have been an issue, but there is a replacement gasket that permanently fixes the problem. I did mine as a preventative and it is still cheaper to own than many other car brands that I won't mention. I think this is a great car and will buy Subarus forever. Can't wait for the diesel model to hit the US.
Fog lights work great, love the sunroofs, a REAL roof rack, fantastic acceleration for a 4-cylinder engine, and the handling is like a high-end European sedan.
Be nice to have the fully adjustable manual seat like the older Subarus.
