2000 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD


I purchased this car with great
anticipation. This car is extremely fun
to drive, looks great, and is solid on
the road. Everything was great until I
hit 60,000. Just after the warranty
expiration, I blew a head gasket. I
thought it was odd for this to happen
on such a new car, but forged ahead.
Then, not even a year later, I lost the
number 4 cylinder. I have 80,000 miles
on the car and have two major engine
repairs. I have spent $1000's in good
faith maintenance over the years and
fear the worst going forward. I really
enjoyed the car, but, sadly, I will
probably never buy another Subaru and
cannot consciencely recommend this car
to anyone.

Best Features

The AWD is great. The look, feel and drive are fun and attractive.

Worst Features

Something should be looked at as to why the car trashes tires so quickly.
