Great car: Subaru guy for life. by Tim on 11/28/2009. Trim: 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5 i Special Edition, Owned 2 years.
Pros: The handling is everything you would expect from a Subaru. Precise and smooth. Living in Wisconsin and with our harsh winters, I can't see myself driving a car that doesn't have AWD, and this Legacy is as good as advertised. Cuts through inches of snow like a hot knife through butter. Was tempted to buy a Mazda before this car, but after seeing my friend's Mazda6 fumble in the snow, my mind was made up and now I'm a Subaru guy for life. Exterior seems to be well-constructed. Love the styling, even though the 2008 upgrade looks nicer (the 2010 is too big and bulky for my tastes, but it may grow on me). Love the sunroof and amenities. Storage is OK.
Cons: Stock sound system sounds great, but the front speakers are problematic. They cut out frequently after about a year of ownership and then would start working again perfectly. Then they started crackling after two years of ownership to the point where I had to get them replaced. And I by no means blast my stereo, just incredibly underpowered, though good sounding, speakers. The interior looks nice, but the plastic on the dashboard and stereo creaks in cold weather or on rough roads. At 40,000 miles they are said to have a problem with rain water getting in and effecting the computer. Cost upwards of $600 to get this fixed, they say it's a Subaru thing but I've never heard of it. Lame.
Overall review: Overall, I'm at 44,000 miles and besides the little hiccup, I don't foresee any nagging problems down the road. Get scheduled maintenance and regular oil changes and I think she'll be fine for a long time to come. The guy at the dealership did say that the rain water problem (caused the car to shake violently upon starting and have a rough drive for a couple miles before righting itself) can happen every 40k miles, but once again, I've known other guys who have owned Subarus and have never had this problem, so I don't know. Performance is sub par as far as off-the-line acceleration goes, it's really slow and you're not going to beat anybody if that's your thing. Though on the interstate I've blown past people when I've needed to, so it's acceleration in traffic I've found to be great. LOVE it in the winter time. I always wonder what it'd be like to own another car, then winter time comes along and I can't see myself in any other car. Once again, Subaru guy for life.
