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

Review

Coming from an AWD Impreza, I thought the handling was good. My 03 Legacy GT far surpasses it. Because it sticks to the road like glue, I can keep up with Porsches and BMWs easily on mountain roads and fly right by clumsy SUVs. I test drove one with an automatic, and the complaints about power with this trans are warranted. I got a 5-speed and the sluggishness issues were resolved. I'm averaging 28 MPG in mixed driving. What's best is the '03 and '04 GTs have every option imagineable -- In-dash CD changer, heated leather seats w/side airbags, heated mirrors, windshield wiper de-icer, fog lights, 16-inch wheels, moonroof, etc. Very hard to find a 5-speed.

Favorite Features

Handling and options.

Suggested Improvements

I'd suggest making it lighter and better on gas, which they did with the '05 (non-turbo) versions. Don't care much for the faux wood grain.
