2003 Subaru Legacy L Special Edition AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I love the versatility of the car. I will say that it will get you where you want to go no matter what is true. If you can live with the lack of power, style, and mediocre gas mileage. The manual transmission is much better for passing and is more fun to drive. Gas mileage is the same if compared to any small SUV. I have 90000 miles on mine in four years of driving it and it has had a lot of work done to it some under the warranty and some by myself to save money (water pump, hug bearings, brakes and rotors twice, O2 sensors and a CAT, and just last week the viscous coupler and bearings went in the transmission). I do not beat on the car but I do drive it on the expressway 80 miles a day at 75 mph.

Best Features

Not much. The AWD system is about it. Have been sorry for the past 3 years so far.

Worst Features

Better seals around the doors to stop wind noise and road noise. More power and better quality all together as a company.
