One of the Nicest Cars That No One Talks About.
By simy on
Vehicle
2012 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium PZEV 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Review
This car is about as practical as you can get. AWD doesn't sacrifice MPG & comes in handy in snow. It's not flashy, but it looks nice, esp. w/tinted windows. My mechanics love Toyota & Lexus mechanically, but recommended the Legacy, it won me over. Got a good price, a little over $22K, practically 0% financing & Costco cash card. The PZEV reduces smell when starting up in the garage. Heated mirrors, wipers & seats in the Premium model. Rocker panel lights up when doors open. Hazard light button placed pefectly so when you shift the car to Park, just depress w/index finger. Little stuff that no one talks about, but it's been thought out. It's really a nice car that doesn't draw headlines.
Favorite Features
Fit and finish, AWD, MPG, PZEV, good handling and comfortable ride. Premium packaged options. Dashboard layout. Wheel well flared out. Rocker panel ground effects, although it can scuff easy when stepping out of the car, it does look good. There's a wide competitive range to chose from. Looked at Lexus ES350, Toyota Camry, Acura TL and TSX, Honda Accord, Audi A4 and Subaru Outback. Decided on the Legacy, it fit the bill and didn't break the bank.
Suggested Improvements
Reduction of engine noise on the 4 cylinder, esp. during start and warming up. Smooth out the CVT when downshifting to a complete stop. Could use a nicer stereo, but it will do, if you don't need a bells and whistles and thumping system.
