Pros

Interior size was good for my family.

Cons

It seemed like a "dog" to drive. I couldn't believe how much fuel it consumed. I was under the impression that Subaru made fuel efficient cars.

My Day Behind The Wheel — I thought it was just like other midsized sedans. I found things easily enough before I drove it. I wasn't impressed with its "get up and go". I did both city and highway driving in the car. I have a fairly steep hill to go up to get home and I felt the car needed a "push" to get up the hill.

True Legacy — this is a great car good for a family of 4-5, the best all wheel drive system i've ever experienced. leg room is amazing a 6'2" adult can sit in the back seat with the front seat pushed all the way back.

I Love It. — I am really happy with this car. I miss an SUV but don't want the payments or the gas prices. The legacy is perfect for one person. Plenty of trunk space and back seat space. When this lease is up, I will buy a new subaru.

Pros

Very upscale, great interior, great low torque, smooth & quiet,  loaded with options, great dash look, leather is supple, agressive faccia.

Cons

Steering response and road feel on vanilla side. Slight body roll a bit lumbering in turns. Premium sound system not up to snuff for audiofiles.

Very Nice Auto In Many Ways. Not A Hellcat Performance- Wise Like My 4th Gen 2.5gt — I think I said it all above. If you need to be the fastest one on the road, keep looking. If you want to balance luxury, bells & whistles with solid performance and all weather confidence, this should be on your short list. Refined, roomy, powerful and compliant. I'm only 600 miles into my experience with this 2012.

Best Car For Your Money. Buy A Subaru - Join The Family — This is my first Subaru and the best overall car I have ever owned when it comes to simply getting you to your final destination. I can trust that I won't have any wild reliability issues and when I go to sell my Subaru I know I will get most of my money back.
