European sport sedan killer
By Brian Sok on


2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 I Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I drive 60 miles/day near DC and looked for a car that was safe, reliable, fuel efficient, winter friendly, and unique. I looked at Audi A4, Audi A3, Saab 9-3, Volvo S40 and the Subaru Legacy. They were all comparable cars, but I bought the Subaru 2.5i Limited with spoiler, moonroof visor, mudguards, subwoofer. The Subaru is by far the best deal... no comparison!

Best Features

The SportShift automatic makes the 2.5i feel much quicker. Love the 4-stage heated seats, heated mirrors, and heated wipers (came in handy during recent ice storm). The subwoofer add-on makes the stereo much better. The 2008 style changes look great & love the spoiler (looks great from rear view)!

Worst Features

The stereo is still somewhat lackluster even with subwoofer addition... stereo upgrade option is a must in the future. Also, fix the armrest... the add-on extension is not good enough. Finally, stability control should have been standard on all 2008 models, not an option.
