2013 Subaru Outback 2.5 by Dennis on 02/26/2013. Trim: 2013 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The CVT takes some getting use to. ( 1000 miles so far) The 2.5 is very adequate for the way I drive anyway, may be a problem when wanting to pass at high way speeds. Really like that utilitarian look. On snowy roads it tracks very very confidently. Fun car to drive
Cons: Front seats could be 2 inchs longer
Overall review: I think I will injoy this car for years to come.

Best Car EVER by Munchkin, Boise Idaho on 02/13/2013. Trim: 2013 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Handles amazing in the snow
Cons: The downshifting is a little hard to get used to. But once you adjust to the way the engine feels, it's more than liveable
Overall review: LOVE this car, can't ever imaging owning anything but a Subaru

Good roomy sedan with decent MPG. by Cooncat from N.E. Ohio on 05/28/2013. Trim: 2013 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Drove Saturn SL2s for 20 years prior to getting a 2013 Legacy. What a huge difference in comfort and performance. True, I get about 2-3 mpg less than I got with my std. shift Saturn SL2, but the CVT is so smooth ... it is what sold me on the car. I live in a snowy region, and the AWD will be a plus come next Winter. Very comfortable and will seat 5 full sized adults comfortably.
Cons: Nothing that I really dislike about the vehicle as yet. Well, I know I will miss the polymer body which came on my Saturns, guarantying that there would never be any exterior rust. Had my last Saturn 13 yrs. with no rust. Some how, I doubt the Subaru would be able to duplicate that feat. If GM hadn't discontinued the Saturn line, I might still be in a Saturn. However, after about 1300 miles, I can say I'm very impressed with the Legacy.
Overall review: Overall, I'm very happy with the Legacy. Time will tell how trouble free it is, but Subaru does have a good reputation. Also, it is built in Indiana by American workers (non-union I suppose .. which is a plus in my book). The engine and CVT are built in Japan, but some GM cars have foreign built engines too. So far ... no problems and good performance (after 1300 miles).

Big Mistake by Subaru...No Thank You on 03/16/2013. Trim: 2013 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Liked the styling and the fact that it was awd. Traded my 2008 Mazda 6 for it. Big mistake!!! Never an issue with the Mazda 6 after 140k miles but after 3 months with the Subaru...Clicking sound in motor, bad strut, loss of power at highway speeds..... I bought it for its awd system but regret the many trips to the dealer for repairs. I have spent more time at the Subaru dealer in 3 months than I did at the Mazda dealer in 5 years. Just buy a Mazda...they never break down.
Cons: Everything except for the styling.
Overall review: Don't wait your time
