2001 Subaru Legacy GT 2.5 from North America
Great car for winter driving, but repairs are too costly
The steering rack had to be replaced with less than 60,000 kms on the car. At a cost of $1000.00.
The front differential is making a whining noise. I am told by the transmission shop that the tranny should be replaced at the same time as the front diff. The total cost for rebuilt replacements and labour will be between $7000 to $8000. Too costly a repair at only 104,000 kms.
Most of the kms I put on the car were on the highway.
There is a rattle when accelerating at city driving that has not been diagnosed yet.
This is the best car I have ever owned for driving in snow or on icy highways. It is unbelievable the amount of snow it plows through.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
