    2002 Subaru Legacy - GT Limited (M5) Sedan

    Pros: Handling; extensive standard features list; Reliability

    Cons: Interior design

    Advice: Enjoy it!

    The GT Ltd. is a lot of car for the money. We looked at the Audi A4 & BMW 325xi but could not justify the $8G-$12G's difference in price. It has an extensive list of standard features not found in the other cars that would jack up the price difference even more. The GT handles quite well with its AWD and performance suspension although it is a bit below an BMW or Audi. Performance is adequate and I would suggest Subaru look at putting the WRX motor in as a performance option. (The 6 cyl. is overpriced). You also get to use regular unleaded gas versus the German's thirst for premium. The interior could use some restyling. It needs to be updated but it is comfortable and full featured. All in all this is about value. For less than $25G's actual price paid, you get an AWD car that handles very well, has most every option you can think of and has an excellent reliability history. You have to spend another $10g's or more to find a better car.

    2002 Subaru Legacy - GT Limited (M5) Sedan

    Pros: Heated Leather Seats

    Cons: No power Seats on the passenger side, No auto open on the sun roof.

    Advice: Drive it on a rainy day to get an idea of how well it handles in crummy conditions. AWD all the time rocks

    I owned an older Legacy before I bought the 2002 Legacy GT limited. The interior of the car is extremely comfortable and I highly recommend the 5 speed for more fun. It actually has pretty good pick up and for the price, compared to a beemer, you get a lot of car with excellent performance and very god reliability. Change the oil, get your check ups and you will have a car for a long time. I am a Subaru fan for life.
