2002 Subaru Legacy L WagonReview

02 Subaru Legacy Wagon L — The best thing about this car is the AWD. Living in New England, it is a perfect vehicle for winter driving while having great gas mileage. I also love the steering radius. It's a great zippy car to get around town, but is also nice for traveling. The maintenance overhead is minimal, although if something does need repairing, the cost can be steeper than other vehicles. The '00- '04 generation looks and drives great. They are a solid car and I would highly recommend them.

Pros: Driveabliity

Cons: Performance

2002 Subaru Legacy GT WagonReview

My Suba-poooo — The front seats are too small, and there is not enough room between the two to set my purse! We bought it so it would last 500,000 miles but it started having engine trouble before the 100,000 mark. I do like that it performs well in the snow and ice. I don't like how my window seal has never worked well, even after they said they fixed it. I can feel a draft when driving and have to put a cd in the crack to seal it up!

Pros: handles well in the snow!

Cons: engine cylinder or pistin or something is out.

2002 Subaru Legacy GT LimitedReview

Great Car. — First let me start by saying AWD rules. It gets decent gas milage (22-28 real world MPG), is decently fun to drive, and has been very reliable. It is closing in on 100k miles and it still feels very solidly built. I am sold forever on Subarus because of this car.

Pros: Looks (subtle, but clean), interior is very nice, AWD!, dependable, decent gas milage, enough performace for my needs

Cons: Can be sort of bland looking to some people, parts aren't as easy to find (just had the brakes replaced), wind noise
