2007 Legacy Wagon Does Well
By Altair108 on


2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Owned the Wagon for 13 months. Love the sleek but understated styling. This is a great looking wagon: lines, wheels, every angle looks good. Mixed driving around town & on local hwy gives 24 - 26 mpg. Hwy gives >30 mpg using regular fuel (2.5i). Manual trans helps but shifting is sluggish and no short throw available for wagon!? Crazy! After pushing dealer several times they finally corrected an engine hesitation w/ a "reflash", basically a software update. If you have this issue, get it fixed! Cabin is smallish and finish not up to my 1998 Acura Integra which I enjoy driving more. Ergonomics are OK but not quite as good as Acura/Audi. For a wagon it's great fun to drive. Recommended.

Best Features

Engine roar, winter safety & road handling. Utility of the wagon. AMAZING turning radius and // parking is so easy. Great power and acceleration for a non turbo. Good mpg as long as you don't have too much fun! Styling and feel; driving position. Fun & precise to drive hard. Great braking.

Worst Features

Longer wagon area and more width & legroom in cabin. More storage space in cabin; glovebox is an insult. Better quality interior material that doesn't mark up so easily. Short throw gearbox! Power seats w/ memory should be STD. Six-speed gearbox would increase mpg. Weird model option exclusions.
