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


I've owned this car for about 3 years and have put around 20,000 miles on it, including two trips from central Florida to Savannah, GA (about 700 miles round trip). I've enjoyed my time with this car. It has been very reliable, never been in the shop except for a door light issue (which was caused by the dealership). My only real complaint is the interior space. The back seat isn't really made for anyone 6 feet tall or over. Neither is the front seat, for that matter. I'm just under 6 feet and I have to keep the seat all the way back. But, if you're looking for a car that will never go wrong, this is it. I average about 18 MPG in the city and about 26 on the highway at less than 70mph.

Best Features

All wheel drive, great air conditioner, comfortable seats, styling, reliability, resale value

Worst Features

Most things I would complain about have been addressed in the 2010 redesign. Rear seat air vents, bigger trunk, more interior space, wind noise due to frameless windows, audio controls on steering wheel
