Review of the 2004 Subaru Legacy

  • Less expensive than a Volkswagen Passat and more refined than domestic offerings, the Legacy sedan and wagon offer a winter-friendly package for those who don't have large amounts of people and cargo to haul.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Don't have to pay extra for all-wheel drive, generous standard equipment list, available as a sedan or a wagon, costs less than many European competitors, tight build quality.

  • Cons

    Side airbags available only on GT models, smaller backseat than most competitors, no six-cylinder engine offered.

  • What's New for 2004

Subaru legacy limited edition

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Subaru Legacy L AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

I truly enjoy driving my Subaru Legacy Limited Edition. During the winter months, I never worried about getting stranded or having car trouble. This car is extremely reliable and very affordable. It's in a class by itself. Many of my friends are not familiar with the Subaru. We they see me they think its a Volvo, Saab or one of the expensive sedans. Yes, I love the comfort and the sleek look of my car. I highly recommended this well kept secreat.
