2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT) 2.5i Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
This is my first Subaru having had Hondas and Toyatas. I decided on this because of the AWD capability. Initially, the acceleration was painful given my experience with Honda and Toyota but after about 3K miles (I now have about 5K on it) it seems not to be a problem and Ok for the Chicago ways. I'm getting about 28-30 miles/gallon for a 30 miles drive to work which is about 1/2 traffic jam. The inside is spacious, blue tooth and home link work well but some of the inside seams seems to come off easily. People admired the outside design so much and they're shock to learn I didn't pay anywhere near Audi/Lexus/Accura/Nissan Maxima. I'm waiting to see how it fares in the Winter
exterior design, inside equipment, fuel economy, the price compared to other vehicles in its class.
folding mirrors with signal light would have been great. The open door light does not indicate which specific door is opened. Dealers for servicing are somewhat far to find

I bought my first Subaru because I wanted a reliable car, good gas mileage, and all wheel drive. I don't really know how reliable it is because I've only had it a year. I got all that with this car except for a clunking noise thats coming from the brakes when you first start the car after its been sitting a while. I step on the brakes and it sounds like the calipers are stiff when they squeeze the brake pads.
Leather Interior, radio, comfort, design, trunk space and interior room is great. I've taken it on a few 3 hour drives and they were very enjoyable.
The problem I have is there is a loud clunking noise coming from the brakes when I first start the car in the morning. The brakes make a lot of strange noises but then it stops after a few minutes. Dealer checked 2 times and "found nothing" please let me know if anyone has had the same problem!

As the title states, I feel this is one of the best family cars available for folks that have to deal with snow. I look at most other cars in this class and my decision came down to the VW Passat and the Subaru. The Subaru's interior space, quiet ride and predicted reliability won-out. It has been almost a year and 10,000 miles and I am still happy with my decision. Fuel mileage has been great - 25 city and 30+ highway. The car has enough power and I would even say the engine sounds good. The car does require a lot of correction in a crosswind and stepping over the body skirts is annoying. The car is not sporty to drive. For example an Accord is much more nimble.
Interior comfort, quiet and smooth ride, stereo, bluetooth, gas mileage, safety features, all wheel drive, transmission, exterior design
More sporty handling, different front end style, smaller body skirt below doors, quicker transmission change between drive and reverse, better handling in a crosswind
I previously owned 3 Nissan Maximas and 1 Nissan Altima since 1999. I liked all of these vehicles. I was in the market for another Altima but the style was the same since 1997. The Maximas were becoming too expensive, so I began shopping for a new brand. My brother put me on to the Legacy. I test drove one and loved it and still love it almost a year later. The 4 cyl. is adequately powered not in the range of the 6 cyl Nissans but it gets you where you want to go. The gas mileage is pretty good for an AWD. I find the car to be very comfortable and roomy. I have had many compliments on the styling. I have no problem saying that I like it as much as the Nissans that I owned.
AWD, got it just in time for the worst winter in Philadelphia in the history of weather keeping. Roominess inside. No goose neck hinges in the trunk, lets you pack more. Gas mileage, Harmon Kardon 9 speaker sound system, better than the Bose I had in last 4 cars. Ride is very good. Seats are comf.
2010 model does not have fold in side mirrors. 2011 model corrected this. Power window/lock control cluster on inside of drivers door could be made to rise up and taper down to allow for more left leg room.
I have put about 23,000 miles on this vehicle to date. Initially it seemed like a great car for the money. First and foremost, this is the most uncomfortable car I have ever driven. You will not realize this until you drive over 2 hours. I first thought it was me until I had others drive it and agree. I have since bought additional cushions which only slightly help the issue. Temp only adjusts hot or cold. They have replaced this unit multiple times and still not right. Automatic lights flicker on/off when going under an overpass in the middle of the day. Again could not fix! Clunky transmission that will not find a gear and act as if the car is in neutral. Scary in traffic!
It gives a great first impression, but that's about it.
Many: New seats, fixed flawed transmission, Adjust auto lights, Fix temp issues. Bottom Line: Car has many issues and Subaru Dealer is the worst ever. I cannot wait to unload this car.
We just passed the 10,000 mile mark and I am very satisfied with the Legacy on all counts. Perhaps I'm getting used to the CVT, but the MPG just gets better and better. Drove from MD to Williamsburg, VA and clocked 33 MPG. Averaged 75-85 MPH highway with AC full blast. Would buy another - or perhaps the similar Outback.
AWD, MPG, reasonably comfortable, heated leather seats, CVT, paddle shifters, reliability.
After 10K, I cannot really think of any improvements.
We wanted an AWD commute car, and are very pleased with the Legacy 2.5i Limited. Excellent gas mileage, 31-33 on 2 recent trips. Very sharp handling with upgraded Continental tires. Quite comfortable with leather seats and very good sound system. Excellent passenger room.
As above, AWD, room, mileage, and handling/ride.
Increased ground clearance, better OE tires, foldable mirrors.
I liked this car from the start, though I was looking for something more sporty. My interior needs centered around my family of four. The Legacy has plenty of room. Subarus are still iron clad reliable (we owned a '95 Impreza - and loved it). The east coast blizzards of 2010 put this baby to the test and she passed easily. I utilized the shift paddles throughout. In normal weather, I opt for the CVT and I can attest to the improved economy in this mode.
AWD, shiftable 6 spd/CVT, Handling (compared to similar sedans), reliability, and ruggedness. This car is the all-round champ of its class and price range.
Lose the electronic parking brake - no problems so far, but its the only vulnerable area I can see. The seats are comfortable for short/moderate trips, but I would not log 8 hours in this car without a long break. My Volvo and Avalon beat out this car for trip comfort. Still, the Legacy does well
This is a solidly-built, nicely styled car. Great gas mileage--significantly better than posted on the window sticker. Quiet cabin. Comfortable seating. Storage is well laid out, and though the trunk is considered average in size, the space is very accessible. Five stars all around on safety. The 2.5 engine provides comfortable performance for everyday driving, but will not snap your neck from a standing start. Not a bad trade-off, though, when I get well over 30 mpg on a road trip.
Great seats with the Limited package. Looked at several other cars, some of which were "premium" brands, and the seating was the tie-breaker. That, combined with a very good sound system, makes for pleasant long-range drives.
This is really nitpicking, bit the switches for the seat heaters don't feel up to the quality of the rest of the car.
I've owned the car since August and about 3000 miles later I hit a deer at highway speed. I am a female and was alone at the time. I've never hit an animal before let alone a deer. The crash ratings on the vehicle lived up to every expectation. The impact was the front end driver's side and fender. I couldn't open the drivers door and I thought the deer was out there dead, but alas he was gone. I was able to maintain control of the vehicle. I didn't hit anyone else and I did not get hurt. The vehicle crumpled as expected, the air bags did not go off as it did not hit all the sensors and the frame was not impacted. I have driven it 5500 miles since the accident and have had no issues.
Beyond the crash ratings, I love the style of the car and it's classy look. It is so fun to drive and i find the driver's seat amazingly comfortable. This is my first Subaru my previous car being a 2005 Nissan Murano. The interior is sleek, beautifully laid out with nice lighting at night.
Huge flaw is the auto lights that really aren't. The lights are very sensitive and come on in the garage even in daylight. I can have sensitivity adjusted but it won't solve the problem. The lights will not go off unless you take the key out of the ignition - who does that. Countless dead batteries!
Already had a 2008 Legacy 2.5i Ltd and was happy with it but felt it was too small. Evaluated the redesigned 2010 Legacy and found the redesign addressed virtually all of my concerns AND promised improved mileage. I accept some loss of mileage to AWD which is worth it for performance and safety in 4 season climates--and I have not been disappointed. 2010 CVT is great technology with significantly improved mileage but trade off is less oomph which bothers my wife more than me. Still feels fun to me. Appreciate the solid feel, smooth generally quiet ride. Seats very comfortable for me and very adjustable! Happy with build quality and head turning design.
Comfortable and adjustable heated soft leather seats, AWD yet very good mileage, solid feel, roomy usable trunk, nice H-K sound. BLuetooth phone. Steering wheel controls. High safety ratings.
Folding mirrors. Reduce road noise even further.
This could have been a wonderful car. They had everything going for it except: It steers very poorly at interstate speeds. It tends to wander from side to side and never really has a tendency to just drive straight down the road. You have to constantly make small corrections in order to keep in your lane. And it is much worse in crosswinds. I have had it into the local dealer and of course they can find no fault with the car. It was out of alignment from the factory which they fixed. This is the first year Subaru has had drive by wire and they have not gotten it right. I have an 09 Forester which drives great, so I know they can make a good driving vehicle. Just not the 2010 Legacy.
Quiet, except for the CVT whine. Looks great. AWD. Nice interior and exterior. Good fit and finish. The bluetooth is awesome and should be a requirement in all vehicles. I really really like this car except...... see above.
Make it steer like the Forester does! I have seen many posts complaining about the steering so it is not just my vehicle. I recommend people wait to buy this vehicle until Subaru gets this fixed. Quiet the CVT whine. Nissan CVT does not whine like this. I have 1200 miles on it now.
I have had this car about a month and absolutely love it. The continuous transmission is incredibly smooth. Although the first time I drove it, it seemed odd to have a car accelerating, but not feel it go through the gears. With the 2.5i engine, you won't win any races on the track, but it's more than fast enough for urban driving. That said, I'm very happy with the gas mileage so far (27+ MPG in mixed driving).
Moonroof, comfortable seats, gas mileage for an AWD car, continuous transmission, and the stereo rocks!
Offer blind spot monitoring and back up sensors. You need to get the navigation package for a back up camera. Rear view mirror with integrated Homelink is a little large. I need to remember to look around it at stop signs because it does block your view somewhat. Not a big deal though.
I traded in a 2002 VW Passat manual, so the AWD CVT Subaru Limited is quite a change. Its mileage is equal to the Passat. It has a pleasing interior (black leather), and attractive ruby red exterior. The paddles are good for quick downshifting to a stop. The engine and CVT produce enough power to meet my needs. It can become noisy under acceleration. The ride is comfortable, but inconsistent, with some bumps surprisingly jarring. It is sensitive to wind shear. It's good about town, but a little tiring to drive on a highway trip - it seems subject to "drift", so one has to pay attention. The jury's still out on this Subaru. A longer test drive might have led to a different choice.
Paddles, remote start, bluetooth, interior, front end sheet metal, great paint job, headroom, seats, easy cruise control. There is a lot to like about this car.
A little more work on the suspension. Crisper handling so highway driving is less of a chore. More sound-deadening for the engine compartment. A less tinny sounding trunk lid.
I would consider myself a person that likes the finer things in life. That said, I've owned Acuras, BMW's, and Several Lexus Models in the past. I traded my 06 Lexus RX330 in on a new Subaru Legacy, and I am completely THRILLED with my purchase. I test drove Accord, Altimas, Passat, and there is absolutely no comparison on build quality, the fun factor of paddle and manual shifting, and the AWD really grabs the road. In the rain, you never feel like you are close to losing control. I drive long trips, and the car is soooo comfortable, and has all the features I was looking for and more than I was accustomed to. With regular gas, 34 MPG on the highway, I'm in LOVE with my car!
Interior Lighting, Great MPG, Cool styling that not everyone is driving, Leather comfortable seats (Honda was NOT) and just a great value compared to mainstream vehicles.
I honestly like everything about it, but I would suggest the Homelink mirror. The visors are thick and won't hold my garage door opener.
Coming from a family that has driven Mercedes Benz for 30+ years I was amazed at the level of refinement the Legacy has. I had looked at the Mazda 6, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Acura TSX, Lexus is 250, BMW 3 series, and Audi 4 series. Nothing strucka balance between performance, value and refinement like the Legacy. Hats of to Subaru for building such an amazing car. Everytime I drive the car I wonder how the hell Subaru makes any money selling this car for so cheap. I would have easily paid another 2000-3000 more without blinking an eye. This car fell short on HP for my heavy right foot but makes up for it with an ultra smooth CVT gear box.
Harmon Kardon audio system, CVT auto Transmission
bump up 2.5i motor to 185HP, bump up 2.5GT motor to same 305HP motor in the Impreza STi and give it a full time paddle shift gear box. Stiffen up vertical dampening, tends to feel a little boaty over large lunging road humps.
I am checking back again with new news about my 2010 legacy and I'm a little disappointed. I love my car but a metal part (bracket) in the engine is rusting and I dont know why? I have put only 8,200 miles on it. I am devastated is anyone having same problem? Please let me know. The bracket will be replaced under warranty soon but I am a little worried something else may come up! I hope it ends here because I love my Subaru I really love its dynamic and secured handling plus the 30 mpg I m getting on the high way.
Paddle shifters, head lights, seats comfort, secured feel.
Please! breakaway side mirrors and 17 inch wheels standard and maybe some more horses!
Have had the vehicle only a couple of months now, but I am very happy with its overall quality, style, economy and reliability. Previously owned a Forester which was as reliable as the sunset. Expect similar results with this.
Love the interior features and appointments: leather, HK sound system,CVT with manual option,trip odometer,thermometer, etc. Of course the AWD is a boon, especially for us living in snow country.
Being a thrifty sort, I am always looking for improved mileage, although it's doing a pretty good job of that.
I've put 3800 miles on mine in 4 months, a fair amount of that on the highway, and I've been pretty impressed. We've had an above average year for snow and the AWD has performed as advertised. I considered BMW and Infinity before settling on the Legacy, I just could not justify that high price for a car. I felt the Subie offered excellent value for the price paid. My wife was concerned that due to my history with bigger, torqueier engines that I might feel this one was underpowered but experience has not borne that out. I chose the black exterior because I hadn't owned a black car in 25 years and think they look nice WHEN CLEAN.
The CVT is an improvement over the older automatic and it smooths the ride and improves the mileage. The leather interior is pretty nice for this price range of car, we'll see how it holds up long term. Cruise control and others on steering wheel.
"Breakaway" side mirrors. Electric power steering pump.
Went to the dealership looking to get a 2009 and fell in love with 2010. I am not a small guy over 6'2 and the car has enough room for me to comfortably drive and have a standard adult sitting behind me. I live in New England and AWD is a must. For the features and price there is no car like it on the market. My only issue is that if I don't have the key on me I have to go to the front seat to open the trunk. Most cars have some mechanism that if the doors are unlocked you can open the trunk
HK Stereo, Paddle Shifters, interior room
Folding mirrors with directional indication, streaming bluetooth standard without navigation. Trunk release on trunk
I was looking for a safe, reliable, all- wheel drive vehicle that had good gas mileage, and this was the car I choose. It is quick, responsive, and fun to drive. I initially got 28 mpg on it's first highway trip (doing 70-75 mph) and then got 30 mpg (doing 75-80 mph). The car still has under 1000 miles on it. The toggle shifters are fabulous, the suspension is stiff, yet comfortable, the acceleration is easily adequate, the stereo sound is excellent, the quietness was unexpected, and on top of it all, I got one heck of a deal. This Subaru may eventually turn out to be the best overall vehicles I've owned.
The paddle shifters are equal to what I've got in the Porsche, and I use them all the time for stopping.
I still haven't been able to figure out how to sync my Verizon phone to the Bluetooth system in the car.
Bought this for my wife who had been driving a van for 8 years. Got 32 mpg on first trip to visit daughter in college. Fun to drive in the snow up to our mountain cabin. Still feels like a luxury car to us. Wife wanted a BMW but really loves her Legacy. I love it too and hope to convince her to let me get an Outback. The headlights are weird in that they only light up the road right in front of you. There is a line of darkness that makes it dangerous on hills. Turning on the bright lights fix the problem so it's not a insurmountable problem. The dealer says they are aligned right and can't fix it. Subaru says they have had others people report this problem.
Gas mileage, radio, luxury comfort, lots of room for our teenage boys in the back seat
Folding mirrors, better headlights that light up the entire road without having to turn the bright lights on.
I've enjoyed driving my 2010 Legacy since October, but the December 2009 blizzard that hit the DC area and the 30 inches of snow we just received really proved the Legacy's capabilities. This car has every bad weather traction innovation available. The only possible way to improve snow ability may be upgrading to performance winter tires. Overall, the combination of performance, economy, comfort, reliability, and driving pleasure made this car an easy choice for me (w/wife and two kids). The manual shift paddles are a decent compromise - I prefer standard shift, my wife prefers slushbox. MPG is not phenomenal, but is 20% better than the previous year's Legacy. Not bad at all.
AWD, felixble drive-train (w/ F1 paddle shifts), comfortable interior, great size vehicle for a small garage.
Tires only, I prefer Michelin/Pirelli, but considering cost...the Bridgestones are not bad...and actually have performed well.
After looking at most mid-size sedans on the market, I knew the Legacy was for me. I purchased the Limited about 2.5 months ago and I have 2500 miles on it. So far, the only problem I've had is a leak in the sunroof after going to a high pressure wash. Supposedly it says to avoid high pressure washes, although I couldn't find it in the manual. Not a big deal, we've just changed our car wash and the problem hasn't reoccured. I love the CVT and the AWD has made the winter driving much easier. My husband is 6'5'' and has plenty of headroom, even in the passenger seat. We often have 5 adults in the car and there is always plenty of room.
Heated leather seats! The radio is great. Love the AWD in the snow. Attractive car. CVT.
Folding mirrors would be nice. Gas mileage has been lower than expected, but I'm hoping the engine is still breaking in.
My wife and I went to Detroit Auto Show to pick a new "fun" car. Had 14 on the list and as we continued to circle the show and whittle our choices down, we decided to look at Subaru (Wasn't on original list). Why didn't we look at it the first couple trips around? I heard the new body style was polarizing, but I fell into the bucket of "love it". I guess I just couldn't part with the AWD and was completely satisfied with the 2.5 in my 06 Outback. My wife stated it best: "The Legacy is a perfect blend of sport and luxury for us." If you are in the market for a car, at least put this on your list to test drive. I recommend 'Limited' if you like gadgets.
Auto AC (my wife won't stop changing her side's temp), bluetooth radio, fit and finish is superb, CVT, fuel economy. We love the upscale luxury feel to this car. And the price is extremely reasonable. Blue LED illuminating interior at night is a great surprise feature! Paddle shifters.
The only minor niggle I have is with the Harmon Kardon; it should have a bit more low end punch to it, but it is still a fine radio and a huge upgrade from the standard radio I had in our 06 Outback.
Just picked up a 2010 Legacy. It is the sixth Subaru for my wife and I since 2001. By far the quietest and the most comfortable. The increased room is greatly appreciated. Compared to the O8 Legacy 2.5 I that we still have, the ride is greatly improved but the handling has taken a slight hit. It feels more expensive than the 08 Legacy. There is no front end vibration and the dealer has indicated that no 2010 Legacy that they have sold has had the problem. The CVT appears to be well behaved. The car, the steering, and the controls are very tight- no rattles buzzes or wind noise. We had considered an Outback, but too much of the handling has been trashed to the point of unacceptability. Why?
Very comfortable seats, relatively quiet, very good build, and it appears more expensive than it is on the inside and the outside. A judicious compromise between handling and ride comfort. Both came out very good. Should be very comfortable on long trips.
Fog lights should be standard and the foldable mirrors with the integral turn signal should be standard. They are on the 08. This was almost a deal breaker. 5.1 audio should be included with HK audio system that comes with the Limited. Blue tooth setup for the cell phone is too complex to bother.
I love everything about my car, it's been 3 1/2 months and 7500 miles and I still love it as much as the day I got it. It's so much fun to drive. I love my stereo and heated seats. I'm averaging 32 mpg overall. Thank you Subaru for making a sporty-sedan that doesn't look like it should just be driven by a young kid. The Legacy has a very sporty-but-classy look to it. I, unlike many others who've posted, didn't drive all the comparable cars in the class because my funnest car (and ugliest) I've ever owed was a dumpy old Outback wagon that would never die. If that old 200+ thousand mile car could be so much fun and reliable to drive, I knew I'd be happy with this one. I was so right!
I recently drove from Long Island to Atlantic City, and averaged 32mpg. Fuel economy was my reason for trading my tribeca, and the legacy didn't disappoint me. I've had two other legacy's, a 2000 gt limited and a 2005 gt limited turbo, but the 2010 is unlike either of them. The interior space is a great improvement, especially in the rear. The fit and finish is great, I'm no stranger to the boxer engine, and combined with the cvt, the car is a delight to drive. All in all, I love the car.
cvt transmission, bluetooth, paddle shifters, interior fit and finish, exterior appearance (especially in dark grey metallic)
Rear sensors should be standard, would like the folding mirrors and mirror signals back.
Subaru steps up the mid-size legacy inside and out. We own an 05 and were looking for something with more room, luxury features and interior. Researched so many vehicles. Wanted AWD for safety so we looked to Audi and BMW to compare. This car is great on the things that matter. Comfortable, safe, great on fuel economy and striking looks. Limited package is definitely worth the price.
This is our first Subaru, we only looked at them because their advertising caught us. We had looked at many vehicles and settled on two. After weeks of contemplating, we ordered our new Legacy. We've only had it a few days and have not passed the break in period, but it's amazing. The boxer engine makes a huge difference, more than I thought. There is very little noise inside, the seats are comfortable and there is a lot of space, you can seat 4 adults more than comfortably and haul luggage for all 4 in the massive trunk as well. The 4 cyl engine feels like it has more than our 6 cyl mustang.
The boxer engine makes sure the car has absolutely no body roll in the corners and the CVT transmission with the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters give this car a sporty feel and makes it very fun to drive.
To this point, there are really no improvements that come to mind. Maybe after we get the chance to put a few more miles on it.
Replaced 2006 RAV4 Limited V6 4x4. I've clocked 2500 miles so far while averaging 29.1 mpg in the month I've owned the car. Mostly hwy commute on competitive rush hours. The 2.5 w/ CVT is weirdly smooth. I don't feel it in the seat of my pants, but the speedo spins up quick. I don't miss the power as much as I love the smooth, compliant ride. I always thought "corners like it's on rails" was hyperbole, but wow! Harmon Kardon system is clear to the top. The passenger room feels comparable to RAV except 6'3" son reports the back seat doesn't cut it for extended trips, no room to slouch. Kinda buzzy during hard acceleration at hwy passing speeds.
Standard AWD; Smooth CVT w/ paddle shifters; Harmon Kardon audio ROCKS w/aux hookup for mp3 player; supple leather seats; bluetooth that understands me; sexiest face in the parking lot!
LED tail lights; folding mirrors; smart key; why two buttons for sunroof? Needs wings and a nuclear power plant.
I love this car. Only driven 100 miles so far but I like everything about it. Glad I didn't buy the Accord! Great looks, smooth power and really feels nice in the corners. The CVT is a winner as well, applies power when you need it but really keeps the r's low when cruising. This is a unique automobile that should turn some heads while offering years of driving pleasure.
Harman Kardon, All wheel drive grip, cvt, fuel economy, styling... what's not to like!
I guess my only complaint so far anyway is that they could have used higher quality leather.
This is the second Subaru we now own. We also have an '09 Forester Limited which is a great SUV and was the first Subaru we've ever owned. 1 year later, we now have a '10 Sky Blue metallic 2.5 Legacy Limited which is amazing. We've owned a Toyo Solara and Saab 9-5 and the Legacy surpass both in performance and handeling. The leather interior and overall layout is both elegant and simplistic. The exterior is also beautiful. It looks sleek and aggressive even when it's not moving.
AWD, bluetooth, Harman Kardon Sound system. CVT engine moves you quick and saves you on gas too. MPG 31 and better. The materials look solid and the doors have a nice thump when closed. Very low road noise. Amazing handling. Exterior.
Would like to see two exhaust pipes like our Forester Limited. Standard Compass and rear view camera as standard would be nice.
I test-drove a lot of midsize cars and chose the 2010 Legacy for one simple reason: when the driver's seat is adjusted to be comfortable for me, there's still room for it to go back some more! And there's headroom galore, too, as the seat height is adjustable. Beyond the comfort, this car feels like it's glued to the road -- if I've driven another car that's more sure-footed, I don't remember when. The fuel economy of the CVT was the clincher (this car gets almost as good mileage as my previous car, a 2003 Hyundai Elantra, despite being much bigger and having AWD).
All-wheel drive, CVT with shift paddles, electric parking brake with hill holder, build quality, spacious interior with wood trim, comfortable seats (heated!), iPod integration, auto-dimming rear view mirror. The blue accent lights are gimmicky but still kind of cool.
The bass on the Harman-Kardon stereo is kinda boomy (and the upgraded stereo lacks the SRS audio enhancement and speed-controlled volume of the base stereo). Would like to see LED taillights, speed-sensitive wipers, and keyless start as options at least. Fog lights should be standard on this trim!
Took my 03' outback sedan in for service when I decided to take a look at the new legacy. Test drove one and fell in love. Dealer got one for me in 5 days. This is my 3rd sub and the best yet. Was looking at other vehicles to replace the '03 because of leg room issues and better gas mileage. But, after the test drive I was sold. Subaru finally made a car for taller people and better gas mileage. I thought going from the 3.0 h6 engine to the new CVT may leave me wishing for the bigger engine but, this new CVT is great/mileage. I only wish Subaru still made the "Outback Sedan". Better ground clearance in Idaho winters.
Leg room, ride, handling and the night-time ambient lighting (cool).
Memory on the power seats and bring back the foldable exterior mirrors.
I replaced my 2008 tribeca with the 2010 legacy, primarily to improve fuel economy. The tribeca is a great vehicle, but I wanted something more fuel efficient. This is my third legacy, having owned a 2000 legacy limited and a 2005 legacy gt limited. I love this car, the increase in interior space, especially with respect to the rear seating is welcome and a major improvement. So far I'm impressed with the mpg I've been receiving, and love the CVT transmission. What more can I say, it's a Subaru, they're the AWD champs.
Mpg, interior space, CVT, styling, fit and finish, bluetooth.
I liked the folding mirrors with integrated signals, and would like to see reverse sensors as a standard feature.
As soon as I heard about the redesign of the Legacy for 2010, I was intrigued. Many things were upgraded in this model year besides the interior space. The CVT works like a dream- very smooth acceleration (I am used to listening to the gears to know about how fast I am going, and this has been a bit of a change for me), and brings the rpms to around 2000 when cruising. The electronic parking brake is interesting (fine with me as I rarely use one anyway), but the hill holder feature is amazing. I wish I had something like that when I was learning to drive a stick. The paddle shifters are fun, and the controls on the wheel are great.
Smooth ride, styling, interior space, ambient lighting, gas mileage, CVT transmission. Bluetooth integration is great (its really cool hearing my ringtone in the car's speakers).
Feels like I have to step out a little extra not to step on the side skirts. Rear AC vents in the back. Better tinted windows. Really all very minor things.
I bought this car about 2 weeks ago and so far so good! It's fun to drive, great handling, and roomy. However the interior seems to scuff EXTREMELY easily. I have black interior and anything that touches the dash or doors seems to leave behind a scuff mark-even if it barely touches it. The scuff marks buff out after washing with a damp cloth but it is still a pain. My car almost looks dirty there's so many scuff marks! I'd hate to see what it looks like for someone who has kids!
Great, reliable, fun to drive. Heated seats, winter package.
Improve the interior build materials on the dash and doors- scuffs too easily. Allow GPS upgrade ability and premium models.
Picked up the car 10 days ago and I love it! I think it looks really good both inside and out. I have the base engine with CVT for fuel economy and it is actually fun to drive for what it is, especially with the paddle shifters. I wish they would have offered the Premium with 17 inch tires though. I did not like the wood in the limited. I have never owned an all-wheel-drive car and like the feel. The car is very stable on the road. To me this car hits the sweet spot for looks/fuel economy/fun to drive. It also fits my family of 4 very easily.
All-wheel-drive, tight in turns, good gas mileage, engine is pleasantly surprising, great looking.
17 inch tires w/o having to go with the leather/wood interior.
I previously owned a 2006 Forester and loved it, but the hour long commutes and gas mileage are why I change to the new Legacy. I could not be more happy with the car: it rides great; it gets very good gas mileage (average is about 28 mpg overall with 31 highway) for an AWD car; the options, such as bluetooth and media hub are great. I also "love" the lighting in the car as well. The ride is quiet and controlled. The Harmon Radio sounds great. I love the new styling; I have received many compliments on it already. The interior room is huge. Simply put, this is one great vehicle (rival any car), and Subaru has outdone themselves once again. I can see why "Love" is the theme for Subaru.
Ride, interior, styling, lighting, Harmon radio, AWD, VDC, CVT engine, gas mileage, cargo space, basically, almost everything.
Little things such as better tires, Bridgestone Turanza ride nice, but do not last. Not have so many option packages, they used to only have a couple, now, it is too many. One last thing, rear vents would be nice to offer on the limited. Like I said, little things; great car though.
I've had the car for two weeks and continue to be impressed with the design. The 2.5 is a little gutless off the line and under heavy acceleration, but it gets the job done and for the 26- 28 mpg I'm getting around the city on regular grade gas, it's well worth the trade. Averaged 32 mpg on a recent road trip. The CVT transmission is remarkably smooth and keeps the tach in a sweet spot. Handling is fantastic. What the Legacy lacks under the hood is more than made up for in the turns. Bluetooth works well, wheel controls are well placed, seats are comfortable and supportive and there is no lack of passenger space. No noticeable blind spots or tiny rear view issues as is common in many new cars.
Handling, fuel economy, styling, smooth transmission, interior comfort and full time all wheel drive without the typical hit to MPG.
Fully integrated satellite radio antenna, CVT on the turbo GT model, lose the MPG meter on the main display.
I just picked up my new 2010 Legacy 2.5i Limited edition from the dealer today and I am absolutely thrilled will the whole package. I previously had a Volvo S80 and I enjoy the handling, comfort and quietness of the 2010 Legacy more than the S80 which cost me $15K more. The car looks fantastic, feels luxurious and handles and drives smoothly and precisely. This last winter in Seattle was the worst we've had for a while for long periods of ice and snow so the awd was the compelling feature, but I am blown away by the jump in interior space and smoothness of the cvt over the 2009 Legacy I test drove last year. Go Subaru.
