I must say that this car has easy to operate functions and is very smooth on the road. It has very good acceleration and fun to drive. Very spacious, in fact 10/10! I picked the cloth interior for my 2.5i and it has heated seats. The handling is satisfying and the car itself is the best out of all the competition. It's almost exotic!

Buy this car for comfort, space, easy driving, and power (6 cylinder). Don't expect high mileage or low insurance or repair costs.

Don't leave the key in the ignition with the headlights on and the motor not running. They turn off only when the key is removed. If you turn the overhead map light on while looking for something remember to turn it off before you exit the car. I have experienced 3 dead batteries. 8 1/2 years of operation coming up on 90K miles. No issues. Car seems to be related to a cross between a timeX watch and the energizer bunny.

Legacy 3.6R limited with Navigation

Between the Infiniti G37, Audi A4, Ford Fusion and Lexus IS250, I decided that the Subaru Legacy 3.6 Limited was the best AWD value. I have to parallel park this car often, so the relatively short length was important. Speaking of which, it's EASY to park this car, especially with the backup camera and the general visibility overall. I drove the 2.5 four cylinder and then the 3.6 six and it's like 2 different cars. The Boxer 6 is smooth, quiet and effortless. I prefer the conventional 5 spd automatic that comes with the six cylinder, even with the small trade-off in fuel economy. The leather seating is awesome and the drive is secure and peaceful. There's some highway wander over 70mph.

No one will ever appreciate this car as much as those who drive it in Summer, Winter, Fall and Spring in the Northeast. Last spring major work on engine bearings - Dealership confused by problems but gave us very good discount. Now at 140000 miles running well since bearing work 1 year later A year later still running well. Over 150000 miles still going in 2021
