2009 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


This is my third legacy and first on in 8 years. Coming from an 06 Acura TL, I thought the handling would not be up to par, but it is a significant upgrade with better control at higher speeds. The ride is firm, but not bouncy. Obviously the four cylinder could use more power or even better another gear or two in the automatic. Fuel economy is about 25mpg with about 30% city driving. The Harmon Kardon sound system blows away the premium system in the Acura. Perfectly clear at all volume levels all the way to the max. Subaru was the only answer since we only purchase Subaru, Honda, and Toyota products and we wanted an AWD car.

Best Features

Sound system rocks, plays mp3/wma discs and has audio jack for iPod. AWD. Great handling

Worst Features

More gears in the automatic for better fuel economy and performance. Better arm rest and larger center console. Harder compound tires. 180 treadwear is good for grip, bad for needing tires inside of 30k miles.
