Subaru Stars Hate the Most / Love the Most...

What are some things about your car that you absolutely hate, and some things that you absolutely love?


'97 Legacy 2.5GT

LOVE: Knowing that she still has another good 100k left in her. How shes pretty quick for a stock economy car.

HATE: How there is not a large majority of performance parts for her, so it is hard to find certain things, which would be easy to find for lets say, an Impreza.

96 Legacy L Sedan.
LOVE: sticks to the road, no chains at Lake Tahoe, my SeaDoo tow platform, frameless door windows (so cool when I open the doors with the windows down), monster trunk, super easy to change oil, excellent rear seat legroom.
HATE: All the wheel bearings and front oil seals that needed replacing, terrible window controls, the way the driver's door panel contour totally kills the side of my left knee, completely uncomfortable seat padding (and it don't get better with age).

05 LGT

Love: performance - in a straight line and in the twisties

Hate: gearing is hopeless and gas guzzling for highway cruising - needs a genuine overdrive 6th - not just a little step up like the sti.

Mediocre: brakes. Just feel "iffy" and not as good as the big disks should be.

Love: Boost. Handles pretty well, and has a goodly bit of getup-n-go. It's a subaru, so it's dead reliable.

Hate: Since it's and older car, stuff is constantly breaking. Seats are worn out and uncomfortable. Bad gas milage. Also, I don't have enough $$ to do it up how I want to.

Love- AWD, driving in the snow with 4 studded Ultra-Grips, fold down back seats, big trunk, sexy lines, vented rear brakes stock, closed deck 2.2, , how easy these cars are to work on, the straight up sleeper aspect.

Hate- Electrical problems, OEM engine management, my new engine (it's a turd), the fact that I now need to rebuild TWO EJ22T's , the lack of performance parts for the '91-94 Legacy turbos.

Kind of a contradiction going on there, don't you think?

Love: The boxer growl, (especially w/ my brullent catback). The nice but not over the top looks. Being able to stomp on the gas in the wet and feel like it's practically the same on dry pavement. Being able to speed and barely get noticed.

Hate: Cheapo cup holders. Ultra Dull boring dash and interior. Not really slow, but not really fast either (fixing this soon). No following in the import scene, so no toy diecast cars or remote control cars. Getting excited at seeing another Legacy GT on the road of my generation, but then disappointed when 90% of the time they are over 50 years old. Getting dissed by WRX/STI crowd.

Dislike the most - The Frickin' Cup Holder. Honestly, who ever thought that one up should be canned, as well as the person canning them.
