The all-wheel drive is nice, but the rest of the car has not been worth it.

2000 Subaru Legacy

I am not at all pleased with this vehicle, for a lot of reasons. Honestly, a good deal of my dissatisfaction comes from the fact that I purchased it in poor repair from a used car dealership. 10, 000 dollars in repairs later, the car is still in shoddy condition. The transmission is the biggest pain on a day-to-day level. If I accelerate too rapidly, the car stalls and then jolts. It is also very sad about climbing any level of incline. The cabin feels very small, and my 6'3'' partner is barely able to fit into the front passenger seat-- after it is pushed as far back as it will go!

Way more fun with the manual transmission than the auto.

2000 Subaru Legacy

So far no issues, but need to keep an eye on the oil level. It has a manual transmission, much more fun than the automatic. It is very comfortable on long trips, however, above 65mph there is quite a bit of wind noise from the windows because they're frameless. My guess is because the rubber seals have worn over 18 years. Overall, solid car, bought it really cheap, single owner, and incredibly functional. Since it is a wagon, there's plenty of space to carry tools, part, etc. whatever I need.

Amazing car, good as long as you take care of them.

2000 Subaru Legacy

It is a great car, mine sat for 5 years in a garage and still does wonderfully. There was only a couple of small things that needed to be fixed on top of regular maintenance, there was a clog in the windshield wiper fluid line and the ac needed to be recharged but that was it. It is a very hardy vehicle as long as to take good care of it it'll last a long time. Mine is a 1998 and it is done great, the speakers are awesome and it is easy to adjust the bass for them when needed.
