Won Me Over a Passat
By Adam on


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


I few months back, I traded in my 2002 GMC Envoy with 140,000 Miles for a 2008 Legacy with 16,500 Miles. I was originally going to purchase a Passat, but I wanted something that was more youthful. Overall, I do not regret my purchase at all in any way. It may be a little slow off the line, but it can haul. I do long highway stretches, and average around 80mph, but still get 25 mpg.
