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


Have owned Lexus LS, Toyota Camrys and Corolla, BMW 3/5/Z4 series, and Honda Civic. Hadn't ever looked at Subaru before but researched sedans with top safety ratings and the Legacy stood out. I have had the car for 2 days and am very pleased with how well it was designed and built. Very well appointed, great value, above average performance, even providing a bit of luxury but without being pretentious in any way. Fuel economy like a small SUV, requires premium gas and frequent oil changes. More fun than a Camry/Corolla or Accord/Civic but just as practical and more bang for your buck than Lexus or BMW.

Best Features

Good nav, sporty look, safety scores, front passenger airbag auto-disable

Worst Features

Bluetooth and parking sensors should be standard on the Limited with GPS models.
