2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT spec.B 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Performance (not enough character for review so to the point) Quarter-mile 14.5 but can be quicker (read) Handling-poor. Change the FRONT springs to "Tien" lowering springs, 2 hours and changes everything. Now, she power slides, launches keeping the rear spinning, quarter mile drops by a massive 0.7sec To 13.8. All thanks to a set of FRONT lowering springs. Don't question it, just understand it. Whomever made the decision for the suspension was smoking some real heavy stuff. Now it's the best damn car I EVER owned. Drifts, slides, rips up the q-mile and gets groceries. Reliable & dependable. Quick & subtle. Now it's right.


Best Features

Reliable solid power train with amazing AWD.


Worst Features

Front springs; Tien lowering springs. Intake; K&N cold air Exhaust; Cobb ECU; Cobb access port

2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

After logging 47,500 miles, I can say that this is a great car. I almost went with the Fusion, but am glad I purchased the Legacy instead. The AWD is great in the snow and the mp3 player input has helped me get through too many traffic jams. The only issue with the car is that it is a bit low on torque, but the manual shift mode mitigates that. Other than routine maintenance of changing tires, brakes, battery, and the other usual stuff all cars require, I had the interior door handle break in the dead of winter ($15 replacement). My gas mileage went from 23.5 mpg to 24.5-25 mpg after changing the tires from the stock set.


Best Features

AWD; leather interior; mp3 player input; reliability.


Worst Features

Replace the speakers with an after market set. Day-time running lights, but can be disabled. Get the Legacy GT if you need the torque and don't mind getting premium gasoline and lower mpg.

2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I opted for the Limited edition prior to purchase after reading complaints about seat comfort (and because I prefer leather). My Legacy is comfortable, has great handling, and is fun to drive. This is my first Subaru after years of Toyota vehicles. I love the AWD, and I will not be going back.


Best Features

AWD handling, acceleration, safety


Worst Features

Interior has some rattles and vibrations that bug me. Speakers are poor.

2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Coming from a Volvo Wagon, was worried about interior comfort/quality. Seats are not nearly as comfortable as Volvo (very few cars are) but I got used to it fast and really am satisfied with the quality. Car looks somewhat sporty and has pretty good pick up for a 4 cylinder. No problems in the 1st winter but will be putting a set of snows on for next winter, just to be safe. All around a very reliable car that's not too frilly.


Best Features

Heated Seats, Exterior Design.


Worst Features

Better Lumbar support, frames around door windows (which I believe they did for the 2010 version).

2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

The legacy is a good proposition if you're expecting a kid and want basic transportation. It has one fatal flaw that is resulting in me getting rid of it: The seats. The seats are so uncomfortable that I would be prepared to take a loss on the car just to get out of it. My wife's rabbit is a much better vehicle in terms of comfort, despite its smaller size.


Best Features

space in the back, handling.


Worst Features

seats. Incredibly uncomfortable due to a design flaw that pushes the cushion against the spine.
