I first bought the 2011 Legacy 2.5i Sedan. The engine is too small for the car. It is very loud and whines incessantly over 50 mph. I realized I was never going to be happy with that model. I owned a Legacy many years ago, and loved everything about it. I've wanted another ever since. Anyway...
I traded the 2.5i for the 3.6r Premium Legacy sedan and I couldn't be happier!
The difference is like night and day regarding the ride. The 3.6R is smoother and quieter; the perfect engine for the car. Yes, it is more money, but the difference in the ride is well worth it.
Smooth ride, comfort, quietness of the ride, lumbar support, handling
Make remote start standard on all models. No one wants to run out in the cold to start their car. Foglights should be standard. Subaru's are known as an all weather car; fog lights are a necessity.
