good value, safe, comfortable car
Pros: Traction control/6cyl engine/AWD/better lumbar support
Cons: I don't like where the computer control button as been repositioned versus previous modelsI have had several Subarus, so I know what the other rater means about the loudness. Subarus tend to be a little on the loud side and you do hear the road, but this has advantages. Dealerships are individually owned/operated, so this shouldn't reflect on the car. Both dealerships I've used have been as nice and honest as car dealerships get...
A nice buggy overall
Pros: Automatic cliimate control
Cons: Non-collapsible side mirrorsI'm quite happy with my 2.5i Limited. I knew going in that it's not a rocket sled, but power is adequate, as is the CVT. Comfort, IMHO, is very good and quality seems to be up to Subaru's usual high standard. Driven sanely, it returns good mileage No regrets, would buy it again.
Pros: bluetooth phone
Cons: road noise
Advice: Check prices at all subaru dealers. Don't use Atlantic Subaru Bourne dealership- shadyMy Subaru legacy limited Engine is underpowered. Road and engine noise is too loud.
