2000 Subaru Legacy GT Limited Sedan 2.5 Boxer 4 from North America
Great handling all around performer that had a problematic automatic transmission
The automatic transmission died on the way back from Sacramento to Jackson, WY. Had to leave the car with dealer in Reno for 11 days. Mileage was about 55,000 miles. New transmission installed. No explanation of defect from dealer.
Wind noise in front windows could never be addressed by dealers.
At 85,000 miles, transmission starting to slip again. Local Jackson dealer could not explain why. Recommends replacing transmission again. This time warranty does not apply despite it only being 30000 miles on the 2nd transmission.
Reliable car that has a very unique look. When purchased back in Ohio in 99, everyone was asking what car it was.
Well equipped except for heated seats which came in 2002 for the Legacy. For some reason, these were only available in the Outback 2000 models.
Fun to drive in any condition. Sure-footed and resisted hydroplaning when hitting puddles. Moved to Wyoming in 2002 and was the staple car brand in Jackson. Legacy Sedan still unique in the sea of Outbacks.
Underpowered off the line which is addressed with the new 05 turbocharged model.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
