Great looking, reliable and reasonably priced vehicle.

2016 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited

My Subaru legacy is a beautiful mid-sized sedan, with leather seats and a moonroof. It gets great gas mileage and is reliable. My husband and kids are very tall and need to have lots of room for their legs. The Subaru legacy is the best vehicle for someone who is tall and wants to buy a car, not a truck. We travel long distances often and it is very comfortable and quiet. The only issue I had is that someone happened with the air conditioning while we were on vacation. We took it to a dealer and they said they fixed it, but then a month later, the issue started happening again. So, we took it to our local dealer and they agreed to completely replace the part that was causing the issue. We may have had to pay a small amount of money, even with the warranty, but I cannot remember.

Reliable, comfortable Subaru Legacy

2016 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited

I have not had any problems with my car. I like the performance of the vehicle. It's only a four cylinder engine but it feels like it has more power than other cars I've driven with similar engines. It's been very reliable for me especially in the cold winter months. It hasn't had any issues starting in cold weather or handling in snowy conditions. It's incredibly comfortable with the leather seats that have the heating feature. The full auto climate control takes the hassle out of dealing with getting the car the temperature I like. A problem I do have with the features is the audio control when my phone is plugged into the USB port. If I use the audio control buttons on the steering wheel it will switch out of my podcast app and start playing music randomly from my music app.

The car is a great value for its price. It's comfortable, stylish, with lots of features and not incredibly expensive. I would absolutely buy another Subaru.

2016 Subaru Legacy

I love the features of my car such as the back up camera, side view mirror indicators, bluetooth capabilities, keyless entry and starter. The trunk space is amazing and the legroom in the back seat is comfortable even for my 6'2 son. It has great gas mileage and the color options were attractive, I chose a blueish grey. I think the front end is a little large, I actually find that I don't like to park nose in because the distance is hard to judge. I hope new models will have self dimming high beams (my husbands ford fusion has this feature) and for some reason our seat position settings keep getting changed.
