Like the car but some oddball early issues
By wmasubie11 on


2011 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


The interior front driver's sill trim recently popped up and won't stay down (will address that on next service).

Bridgestone tires leave much to be desired.
Noisy, and at 4,800 miles I had to replace one due to a non-repairable punture.
I then found out these tires are very pricey ($175), don't have a good wear rating (260), and on Tire Rack on a scale of 1-10 only 1.9 said they would buy again.

Got a check engine light on a trip and Subaru had the car towed.
In the end it was a ripped gas filler gasket that caused the problem, but the dealer in Upstate NY said they've seen more and more of this issue.

A nice car but Subaru has some work to do to get it to the next level.

Best Features

Like the CVT, H-K stereo, and fuel economy; not crazy about the front seats and the oddball items which have arisen so early in the ownership experience.

Worst Features

A little higher attention to taking overall quality up a notch and on things like tire choice.
