2010 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.5i Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

We just passed the 10,000 mile mark and I am very satisfied with the Legacy on all counts. Perhaps I'm getting used to the CVT, but the MPG just gets better and better. Drove from MD to Williamsburg, VA and clocked 33 MPG. Averaged 75-85 MPH highway with AC full blast. Would buy another - or perhaps the similar Outback.


Best Features

AWD, MPG, reasonably comfortable, heated leather seats, CVT, paddle shifters, reliability.


Worst Features

After 10K, I cannot really think of any improvements.

2010 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.5i Premium 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I have now had the Legacy for 4 months and about 3000 miles. After $700 spent on 5 trips to an auto upholstery shop for modifications to the driver’s seat, the driver’s seat, while not comfortable, is now tolerable. The adjustable lumbar support works by pushing the foam padding, which is quite rigid, deeper into your back. It is not inflatable as I first thought. I had this seat back foam trimmed and had additional foam in the shape of a wedge and made from softer, less dense foam, added to the seat cushion. I can now drive the car for 2-3 hours without getting a back ache.


Best Features

Solid feel of the car. No rattles, buzzes or squeaks. Roominess, amenities in the interior, all-wheel drive, smoothness, quality of the materials. The CVT sold me on the car.


Worst Features

The sun visors are too thick and the garage door remote won't fit on it. Please make the visors thinner. The auto dimming rear view mirror does not get dark enough. Get rid of the "fuel mileage" gauge and put in some meaningful gauges.

2010 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.5i Premium 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

The Good: All Wheel Drive provides extra grip - Great gas mileage (average 27 mpg) - Large interior (good rear leg room) - Comfortable driving position - Nice styling interior & exterior - CVT provides less to no jerking - Smooth riding vehicle - Quiet (easy to carry on a conversation) - All Gauges conveniently located

The Bad: Touchy “sport” steering at highway speeds - Wind pushes the vehicle around more than expected at highway speeds - A/C ducts blow in face (center ducts not flush but beside radio, no way to direct straight back) The Ugly … - A/C unit does not cool vehicle I have also had to return my Legacy back to the dealer 4-times for A/C problems.


Best Features

see "The Good" above


Worst Features

Improve or increase the size of the A/C system, current engineering design doesn’t adequately provide even close to enough cooling power. Interesting that the 2010 Outback is an overachiever when it comes to A/C. The Legacy engineers should talk with the Outback engineers.

2010 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.5GT Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This is my first new Subaru. Drove and compared lots of sedans. For the money Subaru offers more features not found in similar cars, manual transmission and all wheel drive. Lots of interior space, back seat and trunk are great. New styling really grows on you. Have seen very few Legacys on the road especially GT Limiteds. Every other car is a Camry or Accord. Love the Turbo,car really goes for a 4 cyl.


Best Features

Turbo, 6 speed transmission, Puddle lights, Harmon Kardon audio, Moonroof, Leather seats, great interior space. rear spoiler.


Worst Features

Would love to see a Legacy with a twin turbo 6 cylinder manual transmission. Black on black.

Review

Has anyone else had problems with the side molding between the tires coming off? Mine has came off 4 times this week! It's frustrating. To think we paid a lot of money for a car thats gonna fall apart! I love the car & its features, but I am completely unhappy w/this problem! If we would have known it when we bought it we wouldn't have!
