2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I was looking for a reliable, safe, affordable ($20k or under) car big enough to for 2 car seats (though this is not our primary family car) that didn't look & feel like every other car on the road. I drove the Civic & Rabbit, then the Outback Sport. The last was a little cramped, so the dealer suggested the Legacy. It's bigger, more powerful, with much nicer styling, and in a completely different class than the others. Looks great, and IIHS Gold crash test ratings. I got the '07 with the sport trim (fog lights and spoiler).

Best Features

Solid feel, especially on the highway. Decent mileage (getting 24/31, and having fun with it). Aux input for stereo in the armrest, and head unit plays mp3 & wma files. Handling and interior quality of a much more expensive car.

Worst Features

Could use some more foot room by the pedals. Gaps around doors are a little larger than other cars. Windows could go down a bit faster. Get the armrest extension. It should be standard, especially with the manual.
