We have had no problems with our Subaru. It is a 5 speed manual, runs amazingly, it is perfect for my husband, myself and our dog to go get groceries, to the beach, disc golfing, and a very nice ride for long distances. It’s a very comfortable ride, the seats wrap around and fit very nice around your back. We bought it used with 144, 000 miles on it, and it is been an amazing car for our family. We live in Michigan and get a lot of snow and drifts all winter long, the AWD feature is perfect for the elements we get in this state.

I really like my Subaru legacy. It's a nice commuter car for me but still have enough space to help haul all my art supplies and equipment to classes or events. I put a new stereo in mine and I love it. I love the comfort of my car, the seats a pretty nice and they are like fabric not leather. It's a reliable car it's great for my schedule and is great for traveling

The Subaru legacy is has no technically problems, acceleration is slow, extremely reliable, not all that comfortable, and has no special features to speak of. The Subaru legacy is a dependable car that I trust to operate when I need it. I also trust it to be a safe means of transportation.

My car is old but in good condition. It is all wheel drive, which is helpful in the snow. It runs well and does not have many problems even though it is old. . I use it for a lot of highway driving and also local. By keeping it well maintained, I am able to keep my vehicle in good shape.

I like that you can drive in ice & snow and not spin a tire. I like the way it handles in cruise control near the continental divide. I do like the Outback better because you can get in & out of it easier & it's easier on your back to get a wheelchair out. This is our 4th Subaru

Very sturdy and safe. Gives very few. Problems. Not the greatest performance but still reliable. Does not have great speed handling or gas mileage but almost always cranks and rarely breaks down. Feels very safe. Seems hipster but not as much as an old Volvo or Volkswagen.

My car is good on gas better than the pick up I had. I love the power windows cruise control stereo system. It has good safety features airbags alarm system. The only thing I wish it was an SUV style with the hatchback!

My vehicle is very reliable and I never worry that it will break down. It has the cold weather package, which is good for living in the mountains during the winter. My only dislike would be the radio is very outdated.

It's a great car but it's got over 200,000 miles on it and it's starting to break down. It's still a great car though and it gets me where I need to go for the most part. I can't take long trips in it anymore though

The one most important thing others should know about my car is that It's an extremely safe car. It's great in the snow, rain, and of course summer. It is an older model so certain parts are hard to find for it though but it's well worth what I've paid for it.

I dislike that I have recently started having to buy new parts for my car. The stereo was outdated I needed to replace it. It's hard to find places that have replacement keys for my car.

There is nothing that I do not like about my Subaru. It is the best car I have owned in the 7 years I have drove. The only thing I can think of that I dislike is the color.

It is perfect for winter back roads. Also, you can drive on off roads because it is higher off the ground. My main complaint would be that it is old and outdated.

My air condition is broke. I like the automatic locks. And the back hatch comes in very much. I wish I had an alarm.
