Pros

Great Gas Mileage for an AWD Car, beautiful interior, built in surround sound speaker system standard, very comfortable, good power, great in the snow

The automatic transmission will sometimes wait for the car to hit between 4000 and 5000 rpm's before shifting

Simply Amazing — I love this car. I used to have a 1998 Subaru Legacy which was destroyed in a head on collision. The fact that my brother and I weren't hurt at all in that crash made the decision to buy another Legacy that much easier. I test drove 10 total cars when deciding what to buy, and the 2011 Subaru Legacy was the only memorable car I drove. The elegant interior and sleek new exterior design grabbed my attention immediately. I feel luxurious driving in this car, and I only own the Premium trim model. Subaru provided me with one of the best driving experiences of my life in my 98 Legacy, and so far it's been another outstanding decision going with the 2011 Legacy. This car is worth every single penny.

Pros

The seats are so comfortable and the sound system rocks. This is the most luxurious Subaru I have ever owned.

Cons

The color and the price reflects that.

Impressive Subaru — This car is so quite riding down the highway, it is such a nice car. Most Subaru's are made for utility with all wheel drive and lack quality. Subaru really put thought and effort in the comfort of this vehicle. This legacy is one of the highest models out there, don't miss out.

Good Overall Car — it doesnt have the most power but it handles all weather conditions with ease. could be a little more leg room in the back seat. Gas mileage is great. Great car for a small family. Right amount of trunk space to.

Pros

Handles really good for a big car and has a sporty feel.

Cons

it's underrated, not a lot of parts and it's a sluggish from 0-60.

The Impreza's Big Brother. — This car is great for a first car it's sporty and roomy. 0-60 is slow but once you pass 50 and you put your foot down it's fast. It's underrated because of the wrx sti impreza but is just as good. If only it had a regular hand break and more power it would be a really monster.

Again Grat Overall Car. Mileage Is Unbelievable For Such A Large Car. — View cons. Other than that ,found car to ride well,handle well,and not a rattle to be heard. Back seat room is amazing, and very sportive. Cloth on seats has a retro 60s high end car look to it

Great In All Conditions. — Legendary Subaru AWD makes the car great in all conditions. Limited power but great mileage (CVT). Braking is efficient, interior spacious and classic. The leather seats are confortable for long rides and the back seats offer a lot of leg space. Third Subaru of the family.

Better Than The Forester — Love the car and the way it drives, but the dealership is of poor quality. That being said it is a fun car to drive and I cant wait for the snow to fly so I can see what it is really capable of.

Too New To Tell — Great in the snow, comfortable, fun to drive. Its my first Subaru so I'm hoping its built as good as its reputation. I drive about 25,000mi a year so I'll put her through a little of everything. So far I love it.

Trustworthy — I'm glad there are still a few manual transmissions around. This car is pretty low maintenance, it doesn't scream for attention or need much. Handles well, good mileage, nice car. I like the bluetooth phone system especially, everyone should have a system like this.
