2010 Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


This is an initial review at 104 miles of use. The car rides well, dealer prep was poor--the compass-mirror was not set to this region and tires were badly over-inflated. The dealer also failed to prevent this factory ordered car from being unnecessarily driven by dealership employees. Perhaps that is why it now has a slight piston slap in one cylinder. The manual explicitly states not to exceed 4000 RPM before 1000 miles. The H-K music system is excellent. The steering wheel tilt-telescope control is awkwardly positioned. Body gaps are larger than the car being replaced. The white paint appearance is excellent.

Best Features

Superb head room, fine paint quality (white), six-disc player, quiet door closure, large fold-down back seat opening, didn't have to accept a sunroof with the premium Limited model.

Worst Features

Six or seven speed automatic, quieter gears, folding side mirrors, smaller body gaps, less tire noise, make light colored interior available with the optional light blue exterior paint color. Reorganize and simplify owner's manual. Use a prettier steering wheel. Add speed-volume control to audio.
