A Beautiful Remarkable Car If Taken Care Of Correctly. — I love how excellent the handling/ traction is for this car and the available space in the hood for me to improvise. Also I don't like how much space is in the back because, its narrow(If 3 people are sitting in the back or a full car). The Subaru Legacy L 4D Sedan (AWD) is not that common to be honest. I sometimes will run into a old Subaru Legacy L 4D Wagon (AWD) here and there but, I only saw this car two times so far. Also, I love this car because its unique and due to the fact that they don't make this model anymore (It's now referred to the GT). For a result of this review, its a beautiful car to own if you take care of it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: This car has excellent handling and average amount of power while stock. So I improvised and engine swapped and put in a V6 engine, turbo charged it, K&N air filter, long stroke crank and conrod setup, tuned it, V Tech performance chip, all terrain tires that are hankook brand(AWD). Now as a result my baby Lucia takes 4.8 seconds to hit 60mph.

Cons: When this car is all stock it took 7.1 second to hit 60mph and I know because, I timed and averaged it. When I bought this car it had a lot of problems. For an example, when I bought my car I did not realize until later that it had a leaked head gasket, oil leakage(oil pan) which is a common problem with these models of Subaru's. And a messed up radiator and they're were leaks in the hoses. Which then tells me that, whoever had my car before me did not take care of it. All of the problems are fixed but, they're is always a problem with any car no doubt.

Subaru > Everything Else — I love subaru's they are very reliable and good looking. The AWD is great. It always keeps me safe on the snow and ice. This is my second subaru and I don't think I will own anything else for a long time.

Pros: It's a great car its very reliable and never let's me down and the AWD is awesome in the snow

Cons: I wish I would have gotten a 5 speed and it  has the typical subaru rust...

2003 Subaru Legacy L Review
says:
Smooth transmission and shifting. I dont like that the driver seat isnt adjustable vertically, the way the valve cover gaskets leak oil so there is a nauseating overpowering smell of burning oil. Its a little bit flighty when I accelerate. Now Im balls deep into this car and I am looking at replacing all belts, front end ball joints, struts, shocks, head gaskets, control arm, and possibly power steering pump.
