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

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great car.

Cons: Why can't we have the European options, auto wipers,headlight washers, xenon headlights?

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: AWD, winter driving

Cons: Limited power.

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.

Pros: CVT transmission

Cons: Stock sound system

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I may never get stuck in the snow again!!

Cons: Some of button/switch positions

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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

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

2011 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited Review
Guru1R8M3 says:
Engine feels peppy due to relatively low weight of the car. Trim looks great and cabin is roomy. Seat comfort is for around town driving and short trips only. Trunk space is average. Legacy has a lot of road noise in the cabin. It’s common to feel at idle as if it is going to stall with a higher mile Lagacy. Gas mileage is a huge plus and paddle shifting is fun in the automatic.
