I leased a 2000 Legacy GT ( 5 speed )
for four years. All wheel drive with
the rear differential proved quite fun
when powering out of corners. But that
brings up the week point of this car.
Not enough power to go with the great
suppension tuning and bank vault
structual rigidity. Best combination of
ride and handling of any car I've
driven. Quiet interior and very
Ride & handling, seats.
Gripes would include poor performance
from the stock Bridgetone tires,
expensive required routine service at
dealership and no one touch open &
close feature on sun roof. I wished I
had waited two more years for the WRX.
I love the way my Legacy drives. When
it goes around corners and there is not
much body roll, this makes for a smooth
ride. We live in the country, so we
drive on all types of roads all year
around. The AWD handles great from the
snow in the winter to the dirt roads in
I just bought a Subaru Legacy GT Sedan,
my first new car! Overall it seems to
be an excellent car. One problem: when
I take it through a high powered,
touchless car wash, the drivers side
and passenger side windows leak! The
dealer said there was nothing they
could do; they took me through the car
wash with another new Legacy and it
also leaked. They said don't use
touchless car washes. It is a design
flaw I must learn to live with.
Bummer, $27,000 for a car and I can't
take it through the car wash! Subaru
may be built to handle the winter
roads, but they are not built to handle
a touchless car wash!

FIX THE WINDOWS SO THEY DON'T LEEK WHEN
GOING THROUGH A TOUCHLESS CAR WASH!
