2008 Legacy — This car is amazing in the snow and on ice. The performance may be lacking power wise but it makes up the the braking and handling area. The quality is superb and also nice to look at. Gas mileage is better than the sticker rating in the summer however worse in cold weather conditions. I would recommend this car to anyone who is looking for a good reliable fun car.

Pros: Fun to drive, great handling, great gas mileage

Cons: Power

Subaru Legacy Spec.b — Very fast! invidia DP, Magnaflow exhaust, And Cobb AP makes it much faster! Brakes are great and Si-drive saves a bit on gas. 30mpg on hwy and 20 in the city. Bilstien struts make the car feel more like a BMW than a subaru which is great. Leather/ suede seats are great too.

Pros: Performance, comfort

Cons: non realy

The Mid Size Vehicle That Few People Are Aware Of. — The Legacy competes with other mid size vehicles. It is also not known to the public and Subaru is a niche brand. However, to those who are looking and search deep enough, this is really a gem in the ruff. For low 20s, it comes standard with a moonroof, powerseats, 17 in alloy wheels, AWD, 2.5 boxer 4cyl that produces 170HP and a sporty ride with good handling thanks to its compact dimensions and AWD.

Pros: AWD, Standard Alloy wheels, power seats with lumbar support, multi-trip computer

Cons: Power, Braking, overly boosted steering, rear passenger seating room, lack of adjustment on passenger seat. No heated cloth seats available.

Hell On Wheels, And No One Knows It. — So far I love this car, it is amazing. It handles and drives better then almost pretty much any car I have ever driven. The factory tires are not up t o par for the caliber of vehicle it is...THe looks are smooth and sweet, professional and dashing. This car is for people who want performance, 4 door sedan, can tackle any of the elements with ease. the seats heat up quick, navi is sweet.. needs xenon lights though... for the money it should have them.. black charcoal sued with black leather, sweet.... factory 18's. 6 speed.

Pros: everything, power, handles, interior, rims, brushed nickel interior. navi

Cons: no xenon lights, could be a little wider.stereo system is weak, front door rattle with little volume. dynamat, extra money ;  (

I Love It. — I do a lot of highway driving so I eat up tires. I get around 23mpg in the city and 29 on the highway, which is great for an AWD car. It handles better than most too. Do regular maintenance and the car will treat you great. It's really comfortable with a lot of features at a low price. Everyone who sees it, can't tell what kind of car it is off the bat, but they like what they see.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great quality, not many on the road.

Cons: I cant think of anything

This Car Rocks, Has Everything I Need And More!!! — I haved owned this car for just over three years and have loved every drive. The AWD is absolutely amazing in winter when combined with a good set of winter tires. Added the STi strut tower brace, was an inexpensive way to tighten handling even more.

Owner for 0 years, 6 months

Primary Use: Family transportation

Miles Driven per Year:16,000

Pros: AWD, 6 speed, turbo boxer engine, premium summer tires

Cons: Premium gas is required
