First Nine Months have been Great !
By Joe on
2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
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
