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


We have had this 1st time Subaru for 1 year and find that it is not comfortable for us older citizens. The passenger seat is very low and cannot be raised. Passenger has a difficult time exiting car because the car is set low and the seat is low. Driver, 5'11" & 175, is hard on the legs for the same reason. With seat lowered for driving comfort car it is difficult to enter and exit. MPG not up to rating for all in city driving. But, once inside the car is very good driving and fun to drive. We will go back to a Camry even though the price on the Subaru is terrific. No service problems in the year. Be sure seats are comfortable and park at a curb on your test drive.

Best Features

Trunk space is great, automatic doors and trunk useful, parking very easy, standard am/fm/cd very good.

Worst Features

Passenger seat needs height adjustment, side mirrors need improving.
