First time Subaru owner and never again...

2011 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Seeing the "Experience Love" slogan they got and after doing a little research of what the car includes I decided to go with a Legacy for both my family and my self.
The car only has 2500 miles with too many problems.
Clutch squeaks, car pops out of gear, and car idles roughly making it feel like it will shut off.
I owned a Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla while I was in collage both cars lasted for more than 76,000 miles without exhibiting these type of issue.
Taken in to account that the legacy is much more expensive than the cars I mentioned this is unacceptable. Experience disappointment...

Best Features

Very roomy, has lots of fun features for the price, AWD feels stable during lots of rain (haven't experience snow yet), trunk size is good, exterior design is good looking.

Worst Features

Better transmission I have driven manuals for over 10 years this is the most delicate and unstable manual transmission I have ever driven. Better workmanship on the mechanical aspects of the car. It should not be experiencing a rough idle at the brand new stage. Or a squeaky clutch or popping out of gear at down shifting. This can easily turn in to a safety hazard if happened at highway speeds.
