Ok Car — I wrote the review below just after buying the car. Now, after 2 years and 35,000 km I can say I was very happy to return it at the end of the 2 year lease and get into the 3.6L Legacy 2015. So the 2013 Legacy 2.4L was LAZY!, mainly because of the CVT. Very slow at moving from a complete stop. Took forever for the car to warm up in the winter (lucky it had heated seats!) as it was blowing warm air only after 5-6 minutes of highway driving! We once drove 120km and the corners of the windshield were still frozen and so were the four side windows. But overall was still a nice car. On a side note, after driving 5000km on my new 2015 Legacy Touring I can clearly state this: Any Legacy or Outback with CTV you buy/lease must be 3.6L engine! Almost flawless car, but that review will be a separate one. Below is my original review: Have the 2013 legacy for almost 3 weeks now and almost 1000km. The comfort of driving and the handling is superior to any car I owned or drove extensively in the past decade (vw passat Toyota Camry Honda accord ford fusion and Mercedes b classe). The chair (8-way electric) is absolutely incredible. Outstanding stability when cornering. Very quiet ride. Sound system v good when listening to my music but only ok when FM radio. Trunk is smallish (no prob for us as this is the third car in the house) and the opening of the trunk is too small too (not easy to squeeze grocery bags in) So far combined hwy/city I am at 9.4l/100km. That's about 1 liter more than my older Honda or Toyota. More than expected. A few more small annoying things can't take away any of my joy of driving the most fun and stable car I have ever driven for a longer distance. First time ever I'm looking forward to winter to try it on the snow.

Everyone Needs To Own A Legacy! — Since I live in the northeast, I wanted to get a vehicle reliable in the winter. I previously owned a Jeep Grand Cherokee, which I absolutely loved, but must say the Legacy is BETTER for winter driving! The Legacy is a load of fun for winter driving and can handle a foot of snow - if you know what your doing ;) Overall I love the vehicle, just wish it came with the cons mentioned.

It Will Be Hit Or Miss If You Get A Car The Has A Horrible Vibration — would not have bought if i had test drove the car on the highway. car has serious vibration issues, and dealer cant seem to fix . going in for the forth time . I now hear that some cars vibrate and some don't so test drive very carefully and pick a good one.

Subaru 2.5 6 Speed Is A Good Car — i'm nineteen years old and got the car brand new. its my first stick and its hold up really good. i like the appearance but definitely want to do some little tweaks, the six speed is great, seats are comfortable, ride is stiff when i want it and soft when i need it. quality is great not much road noise; blind spots are a lot smaller the toyota camry, mom's 2008, the car in general seems more responsive, solid, and safe than the camry. i feel that the power is ok if money or gas wasn't an issue i would have gone for the v6. i'm averaging 23 mpg sticker says 24 and full fill up of gas is about 60 dollars. But again compared to the camry i feel the cars reactions and its a lot more fun to drive. very little body role.
