Some good & Lotsa bad
By ohassen on
2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Bought my Legacy w/85k mi on it less than a year ago. If you're looking to buy one, this is what you need to know:
The GOOD: AWD offers great stability and makes the car fun to drive, good in snow but won't help you brake better in snow.
THE BAD: The AWD system is delicate, no more than 2/32" difference in tire tread depth.
Which means if you have 1 bad tire, you'll need to get 4 new tires as I have already done.
I've had recurring Alignment issues as did others.
I've had Tire Air leaking issues, as did others.
Engine hesitation/misfire seems to be normal even when bought new.
Gas mileage is not impressive. Used to get 25-27. Now I get 20-24 since the misfire issue got worse.
