2004 Subaru Legacy L 35th Anniversary Edition AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


My first turn in the test drive, the car read my mind. I became amazed to be turning just by thinking it. The car seems that responsive! The brakes, all 4 wheels, stop fast & smooth. Listen during the test drive. You can converseas clearly as if you were communicating face to face {very quiet ride!}. The acceleration is good if you're trying to keep out of trouble but this isn't your car if you're appreciate a zippy response. I get 23 mpg in the city and 28 on the Interstate. The seatbelt fits like a dream. The stereo claims to be 40 watts but it performs like 20. The easy access storage areas are still stupid as they were in 1995.

Best Features

Ride, response, braking, predictable dependability, paint job, solid steel ring body, door padding and insulation, quiet inside for conversation, value for price paid.

Worst Features

Please change the in dash storage feature! Switch over to a 5 speed automatic transmission. Put Mitchelin tires on the car (Bridgestone sucks). Make the sunroof bigger and further forward.
