my car has the smoothest ride and it is easily handled.

2009 Subaru Legacy Base

the problems is the items going bad around 100,000 miles. Usually, parts do start but it's right after each other and now I have a 3, 500 car repair bill and still need to get more work done.I do love the smooth ride and how great it handles. It is perfect in the snow and I can get everywhere safe. I plan to buy a newer version of this car when I get money.

The antenna is a wire on the windshield.

2009 Subaru Legacy Base

The spark plugs needed to be replaced. The manifold also had to be worked on. The air-conditioning unit needs work. The brake pads needed to be replaced. The window wipers replaced. The seats are very comfortable. The radio antenna is giving out. Probably going to have to be replaced soon also the air-conditioning unit needs to be replaced.

The car is average everyday driving car.

2009 Subaru Legacy Base

The performance is fine. The vehicle is 10 years old and is a base model. The car gets 25 miles per gallon on the highway. It does have all power features and a sunroof. The car does handle very well in the snow being an AWD vehicle. I feel that the tires wear unevenly which could be an issue.

Subaru Legacy and its problems.

2009 Subaru Legacy Base

The vehicle starts to breakdown around 100,000 miles. The interior of the vehicle ends up falling apart the most. You have to worry about the window trim coming apart, trunk interior carpentry falls off, cup holders come out. As the outside goes, headlights and tail lights constantly burn out.

140000 miles and still running like brand new

2009 Subaru Legacy Base

Car is all wheel drive therefore is extremely reliable in rain and snow. Great gas mileage especially on the highway. Very comfortable ride and handles well. Sporty yet good enough to be a family car. Over 140000 miles and still running like a champ
