Love it or leave it legacy.

The gas mileage is phenomenal. I love the different interior light color features also. The AWD feature is top notch for a sports car. I am able to drive past other 4 wheel drive vehicles in inclement weather with ease. The vehicle has more than enough cargo storage in the trunk region for trips. The seats are comfortable and the seat warmers are so relaxing. I supposedly have a function where I can set my screen saver with personal photos but I have been unsuccessful at this time still 2 years post purchase. I do wish the rear of the car had it is own air conditioning vents. It seems like my arm always freezes so the kids can be cool. The only other complaint I have is if the key is in the vehicle only the driver side door can be opened from the outside. It must be a safety feature but it makes it difficult if you are in a rush and forgot something. I have gone through a set of tires already and the car only has 40, 000 miles on it. My driver's side window also malfunctioned while under warranty. They didn't repair it stated it was just a button that sticks, unfortunately now it does make a noise when used.

Safe and flawless legacy has it all.

My legacy has proven very comfortable on long trips and increasingly good gas mileage. I have had this vehicle for a year and a half and have had no issues and no need for repairs. Especially like the safety features including the warning if straying out of lane, automatically slowing me down if I get too close to the car in front of me, and very broad and clear back up camera. The heated seats are a great feature as they are instantly warm when turned on so that you have some comfort before the car warms up to desired temperature.

- Sally B

Great safety features gives me a confident feeling driving.

The steering is 'loose' meaning it wanders a bit. In addition I still have a problem using all the bells and whistles on the car. Trouble using the radio selection buttons. I love the automatic safety features such as blind spot notification, warning when too close to vehicle in front, or if vehicle in front moved forward and I didn't. Love automatic bright light function when on the highway.

- Sherry W

Love the spaciousness, the extra features and the all wheel drive.

I love my 2017 Subaru Legacy. It's quiet, great on gas and goes like a tank through the snow. Very spacious leg and head room and I find it comfortable to drive. I have had it for over 2 years with no mechanical issues or problems. My model is equipped with "eyesight" which if I purchased the car again, I wouldn't bother with that feature. Overall, a wonderful car that I am very happy with!

- Jennifer O

Top-line safety features.

I love the backup assist cameras and the blind spot protection. I also have starlink in case of emergencies. My car is very comfortable to drive/ride in and gets good gas mileage. I have bluetooth connectivity with my phone that works well. The customer service with Subaru is also excellent. I have no complaints and love my car!

- anna H

Lots of safety features Lots of tech Comfy Nice.

The Subaru Legacy we have has almost every kind of add on possible. It has the eyesight system which is a more advanced adaptive cruise control. It had blind spot monitoring systems. It has Bluetooth capability so you cannot take phone calls hands free. It has a steel bar frame around the cab which is just extra peace of mind.

- Travis G

2017 Subaru Legacy with winter package.

I have had no problems with my vehicle. It gets up to speed nicely and has really great performance for the size of engine. It is 100% reliable and I love the touch screen. There are controls on the steering wheel that make it easy to answer phone calls and change music easily. Overall I love my car and give it a 10/10.

- Danielle C

Helps you to drive safely.

No problems here. This car has all the bells and whistles and drives like a dream. I especially like the warnings I.E. Following too close or the vehicle ahead has moved. I also like the warning if I am drifting out of my lane. And of course the side view mirrors alert me of someone in my blind spot.

- Mary Ann H

Subaru legacy 2017 best car ever.

My Subaru legacy is the best car ever. It has great performance and features. As well it has great support for eyesight as I am blind in one eye. The seats are comfortable enough to drive over 10 hours and it is very great. The only downside is there is no front camera just back camera.

- Katherine W

All around fuel efficient, affordable vehicle with the right features.

It is amazingly comfortable. Efficient on gas. I appreciate all of the features. I love my sunroof. AWD makes it a great all weather vehicle. The trunk is bigger than expected and can hold a lot of items. Very sleek and modern look. Very dependable vehicle. Recommend it to anyone.

- Renee W

She does very well in the snow. She also drives mountains well.

I love my car, she is very nice. The AWD comes in handy where I live. She gets good gas mileage. I now wish I had gotten the one with more power, but only because I met and married a car guy since so I now know more of what makes a car fun. She is very reliable though

- Katherine S

Subaru legacy is very dependable and reliable vehicle in all weather.

I love my Subaru legacy. It is very reliable and dependable. I live in the snow belt and the all wheel drive has been great during all types of whether. I have had no problems with the snow! I also love the heated seats and dual settings of heating and cooling.

- Candace C

Subaru legacy what you might want to know.

It gets great gas mileage. It is comfortable to ride in whether in front or back seat. Plenty of trunk space. Eyesight is a great feature. The only thing we are not crazy about is the heater. It does not feel like it blows on feet like other cars have.

- Virginia P

The car gets great mileage and it does not feel as big as some other full sized sedans.

I love the look of the car. I was not even planning on purchasing this car. I was on my way to purchase another make and model and saw it on the lot and asked to drive it. Outside of the silly center radio touch screen, i love everything about it.

- carrie s

the safety features that are there to protect you and others if something should happen.

There are only good things to say about my car. The mileage is not the most fantastic but it is better than most. The safety awards that it has won make me feel that if there is a accident my chances are better than average to walk away.

- Dennis K

I love my Subaru Legacy and being a part of the Subaru family.

I like the reliability, safety, styling, and resale value. I know it will keep my family safe and has AWD, which helps with rain and snow. There are some minor sounds and wind noise that I could do without, but love the car overall.

- Eric M

It is great on gas and very dependable.

I like size, navi, safety features like stay in lane and eyesight. I like the cannon room and the roomy interior. I like that they added cup holders and storage for back seat. I dislike the pickup, I feel it could be a bit faster.

- Darby S

All wheel drive & great gas mileage

All wheel drive in Colorado where the roads get really slippery during the winter is great. It also has good gas mileage, which is said to be average of 29 but I'm getting 31 miles per gallon average (calculated by vehicle).

- James Y

Safety features are some of the best there are. Great family car

The safety features are great. Let's me know if I go out of my lane, when someone is in my blind spot, when a vehicle is a certain distance in front of me and will even stop itself before hitting something in front of me.

- Tami K

I love my Subaru! Great gas mileage!

I love my legacy. It drives like a dream. Feels like a sports car. It is very good on gas, uses very little. The interior is roomy even though it is a relatively small car. I think I will always buy a Subaru from now on!

- Deb D

The Subaru Legacy is extremely reliable. It Gets You Through the snow easily too. It's fun to drive and gets you where you need to go

I love my Subaru Legacy. It is extremely reliable. We have owned Subarus for the past 23 years. This was my fourth one and I trade it in a 1995 for it. They are durable, reliable, fun to drive and great in the snow.

- Liz T

The thing others should know about my car is it/s small & has power.

My vehicle is very spacious and looks very luxurious. I do not like the Audio system in the vehicle, the pandora app has a lot of issues. My back up camera is also not the best, I have problems with it turning off.

- Gabrielle M

needs more advancements like side mirror sensors and beeping on the backup camera

I don't think i have had it all seasons enough to really rte it but it runs great and smooth takes corners great, gas is awesome! does great in rain unlike my caliber. Waiting to see how it gets me through winter

- Samantha S

That it is super smart for a reasonable price, this is hard to come by!

I love how it drives in the snow! I love how smart it is, so much technology built into it. Only thing I don't like is that takes forever to go into drive after being in reverse, there is a big hesitation.

- Teri S

The eyesight system advantages with the lane departure feature and adaptive cruise control.

I like the comfortable seats, rides well, the eyesight system is great. It gets very good gas mileage with enough power to perform when needed. The only thing I would change is to increase the tire size.

- Dennis M

that it has lots of new technology that makes it safer

I love the adaptive cruise control in the car, I also like the lights in the mirror that tell you if someone is in your blind spot. i only thing i don't like is the trunk is smaller than i am used to

- matt b

Top rated for safety features, such as eyesight, lane change detection and backup camera

I am in love with my Subaru Legacy. It has top rated safety features such as eye sight, which helps detect cars around me and slow me down or prevent me from switching a lane if a car is detected.

- Stacy S

Subaru makes wonderful cars.

It's a great car, efficient, a bit sporty, but also very utilitarian. I wish I'd gotten the 3.6 6 instead of the 2.5 4, but at the time we were a bit short on money so I took the cheaper option.

- Ray B

That my car is fast and fun to drive.

I love the smooth ride and the all wheel drive. It is roomy for 5 people and make longer trips to the mountains enjoyable. I haven't found anything I truly dislike about this vehicle.

- David A

For it is age and mileage couldn't beat the cost.

I like the gas mileage, drive is quiet and smooth and the fold down seat makes it very roomy.... Do not like that I have to open the trunk to pull the lever to put seats down.

- Denise E

Great gas mileage. Takes on slick winter conditions with ease.

My car handles very well in all weather and has great gas mileage. My only complaint is that the driver's seat is a little uncomfortable on my back after long drives.

Great gas mileage, very little power. Getting uphill can be embarrassing sometimes.

Looks great. Has a lot of features. However, it does not have good acceleration or power. I might get something with a v6 next time. Or a powerful electric car.

- Justin B

It is safe and reliable but still comfortable and fun to drive.

I like that it is all wheel drive but still a sedan. I like that it has a big screen for the radio. I like that it had heated seats and a backup camera.

- Coby B

It will stop the vehicle so it won't hit something. Has beeper that lets you know when you get out of your driving lane.

Awd is the best feature and my air conditioning is like a tundra.

It pretty much drives itself, when put on cruise control.
