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


Review

I always love driving this car. The only draw back, and it is a major concern for me, is the driver's seat is unbearable. Within a few days of buying the car the problem became very apparent.This style is by far the best design that Subaru ever came up with for the Legacy. Understated good looks and nothing pretentious about it. Of course in typical Subaru fashion, the stereo is terrible, but in this price range there really is nothing that compares.


Best Features

Handling, nice looking interior,great brakes. Not bloated looking like 2010 model. Reliability. Not seen on every street corner!


Worst Features

How about a comfy seat? Solve problem with Oil odour after oil changes.
