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


We bought this car while visiting our daughter in Colorado as an alternative to a SUV. We also had owned a 93 Legacy fwd and still own an old 87 Brat. We drove the 1800 miles back to the east coast in three days in this car so we got a pretty good feel for it. All I can say is outstanding ride, handling. Fuel economy broke 29 mpg with three in the car and luggage day three. Just passed 30k in the car w/ no issues, just maintaince. 19k for a sedan w/ all wheel drive, sunroof and pretty 16" alloys I while pass on Camerys and Accords. We sold our 97 Mustang when we got home, though it was a V6 and straight line would out run the Legacy, the Sub has got the handling, rain or shine.

Best Features

Sunroof ,all-wheel drive, handling and easy to work on.

Worst Features

Some interior door trim pieces were flimsy and easily broken when upgrading to new speakers. Clutch is touchy. I believe the 2005 model will take care of any power issues that people wish for, ours with the 5 speed seemed adequate.
