Siwtched From Camry To Legacy...couldn't Be Happier — Super feel for the road & torque from the 3.6r. I'm a big fan of the appearance, looks substantial, sounds substantial. Car is a blast to drive & the seat warmers make even cold mornings a joy. Sure it lacks some bells & whistles, but the puddle lights make my wife giggle!

Great All Around...we Shoukd Know...we Own Three! — 4 cylinder was good. 3.6 is FUN. Awd, fun in snow, rain, and dry conditions, but the best part is that they last. We've owned several and besides our Ford diesel, these are the only cars we buy. They are worth the investment.

Pros

Best AWD compare to many competitive. Great Fuel economy with combine 28mpg of city and highway. All season tires works great all year long, even in harsh and heavy Colorado winters. Great handling overall. I chose the limited trim for heated leather seats and premium sound system (Harman Kardon) and 18 inch premium wheels.

Cons

The CVT lacks power. But in return gives great gas mileage on the highway with 75-80mph (33+mpg). Due to flat 4 engine, its hard to change certain part by your self without hassle. Like headlights and other lightings. Need proper tools to open certain screws.

Love At First Sight Since Day One. Still Love Every Second Of Driving It. — I bought this car with 40k miles back in 2013. The Lariche Subaru in Findley Ohio had service this car from headlights to exhaust muffler. Just regular oil change and tire rotation on this car until it reached its 60k service. I drove it along on country roads. I drove it to Canada and also drove it twice to VA. Great gas mileage at driving 75-80 mph. 33+ mpg on the highway. This is my first Subaru but I'm so glad I bought this car. Sometime calculating your budget and buying something really odd can turn out to be one of the best investments you've done. Subaru's are great cars with the bucks worthing every penny. Once you drive an AWD car, you'd never enjoy driving a FWD car. 2010 Subaru Legacy Limited 2.5i (Stock) 170hp AWD K&N air filter.

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

Pros

Great in all weather and that's why Subarus are the best!  Handles well, efficient gas mileage (27-33 on highway), and is reliable and safe.

Cons

If you are expecting a WRX's acceleration, this is not the car!  The four cylinder engine is, however, responsive and efficient.

All Weather Subaru...safety, Reliability, And Efficiency - Great Family Car! — Love Subarus! We had 5! Worth the money, less maintenance, safe in all occassions! Simply the best in terms of convenience features, like steering shifters, and traction control. Aside from the usual maintenance, it is extremely low on maintenance fees. Buy it!

Pros

Very reliable, quiet, smooth ride, roomy

Cons

Wish front seats hugged better.  Fan on low does not provide enough airflow for rear seats in winter.  Fan on medium does, but adds to ambient noise.

Super Car — Ride, fuel economy for AWD car. CVT transmission nice. Very roomy. Very reliable. Great in the snow, Doors shut like a Mercedes, very solid. 60/40 back seat very useful for packing, especially skis or longer items. Would buy another.

lag in acceleration

Spacious Luxury Awd Look A Like For Fraction Of The Cost — Being in the north east and being 6'6" and looking for fuel economy then this is the car to get. I am highly pleased with all of the cargo room that it has, I traded in my 2008 Tahoe. Subaru + manual transmission = Fun.

Great For The Family Dad That Isn't Quite Yet To Give Up His Adrenalinerush — Performance - quick and nimble, but grips the road like you've got super glue on your tires. Interior - stylish and functional. only downside is that the navigation and ipod functions are disabled while the car is in motion. But that is still a great safety feature, especially when you have to focus on driving when you've got a newborn in the back. Cost of ownership - gas is the equivalent of consumption of the v-6 3.5 altima, maybe 50 miles more to the tank, free oil changes for life!!! all and all well worth it in my opinion.
