2009 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

An excellent, smooth ride. Stable, very little body roll even when accelerating into turns. Instrument panel and console layout well done. Smooth acceleration, smooth stops. Originally considered SE but the Limited boasts a lot of features that more than justify the increase in cost, though both trims drive exactly the same. Seats are comfortable, power seats & telescoping/tilt wheel easy to find your sweet spot in the driver's seat. The 2.5 4-cylinder is more than enough power. If you are considering a mid-size sedan, the safety features of this Subaru more than make up for the sacrifice of a few MPG with a FWD/RWD car.

Best Features

Automatic transmission with Sportshift (Tiptronic), Heated mirrors & front windshield, all wheel drive, beautiful instrument cluster & console configuration, alloy rims standard, dual zone climate control.

Worst Features

A 5-speed automatic transmission would have been a nice finishing touch. Fuel economy is slightly below average for a sedan (but this is the trade-off with an AWD vehicle). Color options are somewhat limited compared to competitors. Key fob with remote built in is somewhat clumsy, learning curve.
