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

Review

Clutch shudder 25K miles. Replaced under warranty. Both head gaskets leaking at 89K miles. Fixed at a cost of $2K. Reputation for reliability is based upon pre 2.5L models. These cars are prone to issues by design and are expensive when need to be repaired.

Handling.

Worst Features

Please do some simple FMEA and permanently fix the design issues.
