You don't feel like you are slipping over the road when It's wet and snowy.

The Subaru legacy is easy to drive and great in the rain and snow. There is maintenance that is an added expense when you reach 100, 000 miles, but the car runs great and will make it to 100k and more. The driver's seat is power operated. The car can fit 5 adults comfortably. The trunk is large and provides more enough storage for 5 women to go to the beach for a long weekend. The exterior is easy to maintain, even with infrequent washes.

Four wheel drive makes it reliable in any weather condition.

I love my car. It runs great. Never any issues. I only wish there was more trunk space and back seat space. My baby's stroller takes up the entire trunk. Her car seat is in the back seat passenger side. To fit it, the front passenger seat has to be pushed all the way up, which makes it uncomfortable for the passenger. But other than that, it's a great car.

- Frankie V

I love my 2009 Subaru legacy 25i special edition sedan!

The 2009 Subaru legacy 25i limited edition sedan is the best car I've ever driven hands down! The all wheel drive makes the mountain and windy roads where I live a breeze to drive down not to mention the gas mileage is really good. There is no Bluetooth compatibility but compared to the other features its no problem!
