2000 Subaru Legacy GT 4dr Sedan AWD


Purchased to replace 1996 Legacy GT Automatic. Loved the 5 speed feel and control. The SOHC 2.5 is more responsive and easier to maintain. We have done basically nothing to the car except maintain it in 112000 miles. The only weak area seems to be maintaining wheel alignment. We have had a ball with the car. Intend to keep it another 3 years at least.

Best Features

a) 2.5 SOHC engine's torque and overall response. b)5 speed transmission's shift feel and perfect gear ratios. c)Handling d) Reliability

Worst Features

a) Tougher suspension requiring fewer wheel alignments. b) More front leg room for long distance comfort. c) Redesigned low-beam headlights. They are inexpensive and easy to replace but burn out anout once per year. Never the high beams.
