2002 Subaru Legacy L AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I bought a 5 speed Legacy L wagon in
August 2001. I had driven a 1995
Brighton for years. I put very few
miles (3100 in almost 9 months!) on the
car as I commute by bicycle most of the
time. In many ways, the 2001 seems to
be more shoddily constructed than
my '95. The clutch is grabby, it has
an odd groan in the steering when
executing tight, low-speed maneuvers,
the paint has a lot of orange peel, the
wheels were unbalanced, the driver's
door really takes a slam to get it to
shut, and the fuel filler door is

Best Features

Very smooth, supple ride. Good handling characteristics, AWD when you need it.

Worst Features

Build quality is an issue, it feels pretty sluggish Also, compared to our'95 Camry, the interior feels pretty cramped. Three kid's carseats/boosters hardly fit. I hate to say it, but I regret buying it.
