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.

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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great gas mileage

Cons: can't think of anything that sucks

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I fill this car up once a month. When it snows, this car is fantastic on the road.

Cons: miss the height of an sub and a back wiper. Engine loud.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability, Value, AWD

Cons: Wish I went for the 3.6R engine and Harmon Kardon Stereo upgrade

2012 Subaru Legacy Review
grantmeg says:
Jeep Patriot feels far more sturdy and safer on the road by far. It has much more off road and snow capability with ability to go from AWD to locking 4X4 drive and higher ground clearance. Recently, we were hit head on at higher speed by a Subaru wagon. The Jeep held up well, only pushed the front end into just touching the radiator - the Subaru was destroyed all the way to their windshield. No contest.
