2011 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)

Review

I bought it in January of 2011 and so far it's great. It is fun to drive, has lots of grip and feels a lot safe inside. Now the issue. When the car's engine is hot and as it move backwards with the AC on and no gas pedal applied, the engine vibrates a lot as if it's coming to stop, but at the next moment it comes back to normal.The engine sound also changes drastically when the car moves from idle in forward or reverse direction with the AC on. I've also noticed that when I'm idling at a traffic signal with the AC on, the engine is coming to a stop, but at the next moment it comes back to normal. There is no problem when the AC is not on and when the car attains speed with the AC on.

Favorite Features

AWD

Suggested Improvements

More thigh support in the front sear and an engine temperature gauge.

Update: The AC problem got resolved when the dealer reset the ECU.
