2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 I 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


1000 miles so far. Overall this is a quality car. I traded a Mazda 3. I thought I would miss the zoom-zoom factor, but there is adequate acceleration and I think the Legacy actually responses better when passing others on the freeway. Plenty of room on the inside. Clean, straightforward dash layout. Only problem I had was deciding on the Limited or GT.

Best Features

AWD, heated side mirrors and heated windshield wipers. The gas mileage is awesome so far 26+ mpg. The car offers the complete package at a reasonable price.

Worst Features

Radio controls on the steering wheel! Wow do I miss those. I can't complain enough about this miss by Subaru. But I can't think of anything else (ok, maybe more horsepower - the GT was awesome but seemed a little over priced)
