If you need a roomy, comfortable sedan with the best possible ability to navigate through winter’s worst, the new Legacy is well worth a look. Wide front seats, incredibly useful lumbar support...

Subaru has problems, but safe and reliable

2011 Subaru Legacy 2.5i

My Subaru legacy is pretty reliable have had for almost 3 years barely had to do any repairs except normal wear and tear. Starts every time no leaks, really clean on the underside. The heated seats has made it a comfortable experience since I live where there is snow. The all wheel drive has been a phenomenal addition as well when it comes to snowy situations. The only problems I have going for it right now is after an oil change 3,000 miles afterwards the oil will begin to disappear. It takes a while for it to all disappear, but there is something wrong in the engine. Also I had brakes done not too long ago and one of my rotors is warped it has been difficult to deal with but a bit of costly repair since the brakes have to be done in pairs and everything must be done at the same time since it's all wheel drive. Overall without the problems has been great car loads of space, been great with reliability, and makes me feel safe.

Spacious, comfortable, and reliable.

2011 Subaru Legacy

The 2011 Subaru Legacy is the perfect A to B car. It is highly reliable, has wonderful handing, sensitive brakes, and is not bad on gas for an all wheel drive. It is not a sporty vehicle, the acceleration is kind of slow. But she handles all weather conditions (rain, sleet, snow, etc. ) With ease. I have driven this car from Rhode island to jersey and back to ma on a single tank of gas. The best part of this vehicle I would have to say is the comfort. The climate control is maintains comfortable temperatures. The driver and passenger seat have heated seats which are perfect for those snow winter days. There's plenty of space for passengers to sit comfortably, even in the back seat. Moderate trunk space.

My trusty Subaru makes me happy

2011 Subaru Legacy

This is my 3rd Subaru, I find them very reliable, and a good value for the money. I have a 6 cylinder engine which has great pick up, and I trust it when I step on the gas pedal. So far, my 7 year old car is reliable and performs well. The seats are comfortable, and ergonomic. There is enough room in the back seat. The gps is easy to use, but is not real-time so it doesn't give traffic updates. It still looks modern and the body shape is very upscale, and doesn't look cheap. My one negative comment with Subarus in general are the windshield wipers, I never find them to really clean the windows after a while, so they need to be replaced in a timely manner.
