Traded in '07 Civic and the Legacy is like driving a luxury car. Test drove a '08 Legacy but car gave rough ride and even smaller interior than the civic. Tested the '10 Legacy and was blown away. Great interior room, great ride quality, great radio sound. Engine sounds awesome under high rev but very quiet when cruising. Considering AWD and the price, you get A LOT for the money. I have 300 miles and am getting over 25 mpg and engine not even broken in yet. Love this car!
Ride quality, 6 speed shift feels great, radio sound, AWD, heated seats (not leather which I was surprised since I never saw this before). Hill assist and traction control also make for a winter I won't be nervous about. Interior design is very appealing.
Exterior design is a bit weird for me but really not an issue. Radio controls could be a bit better, knobs are small and display a bit outdated.
