I agree with the points made in this review. I have about 2000 miles on this car which I drive on the Oregon coast. As a non-audiophile, I am not overly concerned about the sound system, which is adequate but not stellar. The fuel economy ratings are realistic based on my experience. I also like very much the driving position. No squeaks or rattles. A very solid car; a great deal on an AWD vehicle for the price. I also have a 2008 Outback which has been a great, very serviceable, vehicle. The new Legacy sedan feels much more nimble, peppy, and more fun to drive. Overall, very happy with this car as I have been with the 2008 Outback I have now and the 2001 Outback I traded in to get the new Legacy.Report it
What do you mean by "engine/cvt breaking in"? One thing I did not like about this car when I test-drove it was the loud high-pitch whine when you step on the gas. One salesman implied this noise disappears once you break the car in. Of course, salesmen are known for honest statements, so I am curious about your experience. What are your experiences with the Legacy's high-pitch whine? Is it present? Has it faded with time? To me that whine is a shame. It hides what is otherwise a relatively sporty engine growl when you step on the gas.Report it
In my previous comment, I jest of course, when I say "salesmen are known for honest statements."Report it
