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


Very well appointed and classy looking interior.
Great quality and look to the interior materials and lighting.
Ride quality is super smooth yet firm enough for cornering.
Feels firm over uneven road surfaces but doesnt break your back.
Seats are firm and comfy even on long hauls.
The 2.5i is a little sluggish off the line but over 30mph has plenty of power spooled up for passing.
Fun factor is moderate only lack of power hurting this aspect of the sedan.
Back seat is a little tight not reccomended for people over six foot.
Also passenger side footwell is a touch shallow and the seat needs to be slid back to for a comfortable leg position.
Over all look is handsome!

Best Features

Love the quality and softness of the leather. Sound system bumps and is crystal clear. Red interior lighting is great looking and easy to read day or night. Body lines are clean but sporting. Love the idea that im not driving a camry, accord, or impala. AWD kicks in snow, ice,and rain, so well in fact i didnt bother w/ my snow tires this year. The legacy has a head turning factor as many people notice its good looks but are not sure what the make and model are at first glance. I feel as though im driving a car that costs 1000's more than what i paid.

Worst Features

2.5i could used a little more power off the start. Cabin could benifit from a little more sound dampening. AWD does drink a little more fuel but its worth it
