I feel like Subaru has had awesome reviews in things like safety and customer satisfaction. When they towed my Malibu away they person doing so said they don't tow many Subaru cars away because there is great return on them and something you can take care of and hand down.

I love my new Subaru Legacy because it is very similar to what I had previously only with a few extra features like the back up camera and lights in the mirror. I was able to get one with the moonroof and heated seats and everything. The color is a shiny blue which makes me happy that I found a color and not a dull earth tone. It is a great family car. The only thing I don't like about new subaru cars is they let the gas light come on way too early like still at a quarter of a tank which makes me want to ignore it longer and they bounce when you are at idle more than previous cars I've had. I am enjoying the new screen display and easy access to information like tire sensors and other maintenance things which I didn't have before. The interior color is really nice too and the seats seem comfy.

Great, safe car, minimal problems!

Overall, the car is awesome. It drives smoothly, is safe and gets great mileage. It also has excellent safety features, an easy to use backup camera, and a fantastic display for radio/gps/phone calls. It reads my text messages to me while I drive and lets me reply which is important for me because I do freelance work and schedule clients on a one by one basis. My life is always moving. My only complaint with the car is the current recall on the gas gauge. I did run out when it said I had a quarter tank left which was frustrating but subaru is working on it. . I also lease so I love that subaru cars hold their value well. It makes the lease more affordable!

I love my Legacy - perfect for Oregon, rain or shine!

Good gas mileage, I love the safety features, the front detection feature has prevented 2-3 accidents that I can immediately recall at 20, 000 miles I still haven't experienced any mechanical or technical issues, other than alerting me to low tire pressure and the check engine light came on when my gas cap wasn't screwed on completely. The all-wheel drive has gotten me to and from work in snowy and icy conditions. The car seats 4 comfortably, or two up front with my great dane in the back:) lots of trunk space too!
