The brakes need more power and the steering requires more turning.

In my vehicle, compared to all the other vehicles I have driven, the brakes need much more power for it to start receiving the input and the steering requires a lot more turning considering how big the steering wheel is. I do appreciate how fast the vehicle can go since I can get to more places faster. Although I don't mind the steering I feel as though the brakes could use a bit more work.

- Winnie L

Subaru Legacy, still going.

The air conditioning does not work, probably just needs to be recharged. There are some issues with the power steering, when certain stress is put on it, a high pitched screeching noise can be heard. The alternator went bad within the first year of ownership, when the car was 10 years old. Otherwise still working well.

- Alex A

Over 215k miles & no issues only standard changes such as tires, brakes & oil.

I have no issues with my car. 215, 000 Miles and only money I've put into it is new tires, brakes and oil changes which are standard among any car. Very reliable in snow. I plan on buying another Subaru when I get a new car because I am very satisfied with my current vehicle.
