great first 'adult' car
By mufasa1023 on


2001 Subaru Legacy L AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car with 60,000 miles from
a graduating med student and so got an
amazing price. It's a great car and a
nice change from my old ford ranger.
AWD is amazing the engine is peppy
unless the a/c is on then in drags a bit
and has to be punched up a bit to
accelerate. Has no glaring problems.
Windshield does whistle a bit with
crosswinds and it has a strange rattle
noise during low end acceleration
sometimes but still runs perfectly. It
corners like it's on rails .

Best Features

The AWD and low center of gravity make for fun driving Next time i'll probably opt for the 227 or 250 hp version b/c the 165 is a bit slow when beating someone off the line. 22-28 mpg with an automatic AWD car? beats the snot out of a 14 mpg 2WD ranger that cornered like a bathtub.

Worst Features

There are many options available including the cd player and moonroof and foglights etc. So i guess the windshield noise and cheaper turbo chargers.
