2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


We've had this car about a month and have but about 1500 miles on it. On the NJ Turnpike it got about 31 MPG running at 70 mph and has been getting 22 in the city. Plenty of power, great handling, and practical layout. Much zippier and tighter on the road than the outback, plus better mileage. I bought this car for my wife to replace a minivan. We argue over who gets to drive it. My only gripes, only one power outlet on the dash area and that is inside the ash tray, so the tray must be open to power the radar detector. The porsche designed motor has plenty of power, but can be noisy at times. We have a large dog and she fits nicely in the back with three suit cases. Get one while you can.

Best Features

Best mileage in an all wheel drive mid sized wagon. Handles almost as well as my Maxima SE. Nice quiet ride. We added the all weather floor mats and rear cargo mat (from an outback) - these are great as you can just hose them off. Highest ratings in crash tests and rollover. The backup sensor.

Worst Features

Could use more power outlets. The alarm system and door locks should be controllable from the drivers door key - the current system is controlled either with the remote or from the inside driver door controls. This car should not be discontinued - it's much better than an Outback for on road use.
