    Buy Any Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Other Japanese Or Korean Car, Even A Dodge, Before A Subaru — Update: Shortly after fixing the head gasket issue, the stereo (6 CD changer)/dual zone climate control unit failed (twice!). $800 part new from Subaru, and $200+ on Ebay. Now with 84k I was just old that the exhaust system won't last beyond Spring ($1500.00). Keep in mind that have the car sprayed with either Fluid Film or Corrosion Free every year. Ridiculous. My last Nissan and Toyota went 160k+ before they needed any exhaust work. The Nissan didn't need brake pads (first anything it needed) till 79k. Over rated junk! Going this spring for someone that needs shiny platform their bumper stickers.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good in snow, but only with studded snow tires.

    Cons: 78k and the engine has to be pulled to replace head gaskets to the tune of $2-$3,000. Dealership admitted it is NOT uncommon. Forums reveal that it is prevalent and persists through 2011 (maybe longer). Forums reveal people's engines are not lasting and need to be replaced even after this major repair. JUNK!!!!

    Any claims that this issue was resolved from 2005 onward is absolutely false!!!

    Car is mediocre in every way. MY 1992 Camry did everything better. First and LAST Subaru. Good for liberal bumper stickers and not much else.

    It's A Sleeper — I have owned this car for a number of years now, great car. No problems, very quick, handles like a dream. Thinking about 19" tires, new intake and exhaust next year. Or maybe a new STi, Subaru is a great car especially if you get one with a turbo, lots of fun.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Dont have it yet :(

    Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT LTD is a better driving, better handling and more powerful car than the base model BMW 3 Series or Audi A4. And it's less expensive. And maintenance is cheaper.
