We really wanted a new Honda Accord or
Toyota Camry wagon, but unfortunately those
manufacturers stopped making wagons in the mid
This car was more expensive (around $20,000) than
Camry ($16,000) or Accord. It is considerably less
sturdy (doors don't close smoothly; interior feels
"cheap") than those other Japanese cars. Finally,
the Legacy gets horrible gas mileage (around 22
mpg) even though this is a vehicle with standard
transmission. This last issue is a real sore spot
with me. Our previous car was an 1986 Camry that
still got 40 mpg even after 253,000 miles.
I enjoy the CD player. The controls for the cruise
control work well.
Improve the gas mileage! Use better materials and
workmanship on the interior.
