2009 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.5GT Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Researched all wheel drive vehicles for several months before deciding on the Legacy for numerous reasons. I'm extremely happy with my decision and always look forward to driving it. It handles rain, snow, and freezing temperatures with aplomb. When the weather is nice it's tons of fun to blast down twisty back roads. One of the most well-rounded vehicles I've ever driven!


Best Features

Acceleration, handling, comfort, dual zone climate control & heated seats, and the Harman Kardon sound system.


Worst Features

Can't fault the car for any major area but a little more power and better gas mileage would be nice.

2009 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.5GT Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

The car can be a comfortable cruiser in I-drive mode or a powerful, sports sedan in Sport Sharp mode. There is a perfect setting for your driving mood or road condition. The GT Ltd. version is sporty and responsive; plenty of power is just one downshift away and pressing the accelerator. The turbo whirls into action and with the standard AWD gripping the road--wet or dry--the vehicle simply flies. Winter is now here and I have no reservations driving my kids around in any weather condition. Research your options, test drive the competition and then the Legacy GT Ltd. and the car you'll drive home is the Subaru.


Best Features

AWD for nasty mid-west winters, HK sound system, comfortable leather-trimmed, heated seats, driver-controlled SI-Drive mode, turbo-power whenever needed, overall interior and exterior design (don't like the base models, but the GT Ltd. version with the functional hood scoop is mean and aggressive!).


Worst Features

Seat warmer switch is in an awkward location; manual shifter isn't very smooth, iPod interface is not standard, no storage for sunglasses, GT Ltd. version takes only premium fuel and while fuel economy isn't great, the safety and stability of AWD compensates in this area.

2009 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.5GT Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

There are a lot of reviews out there that suggest this car can compete with the European Sports Sedan class and I would say that it falls short. It is a quick car that offers a lot of bang for the buck, but its suspension is soft and lacks the high quality interior of its rivals.


Best Features

Engine. Stereo.


Worst Features

Rain gutters for a roof rack. Stiffer Suspension. Cabin Noise.
