"I just bought the car about a month ago and so far I have no complaints whatsoever. It handles nicely. It's quick and with it being a 5 speed, I can control my fuel economy pretty well. I average about 26mpg with mixed (city and highway) driving. I really like AWD, this is the first car I've ever owned with AWD and I don't think I'll ever go back to front wheel drive. I'm really excited to see how well she handles the snow and ice that Indiana winters surely bring along with them."

"I received an inheritance and wanted to buy a new car.My Boyfriend looked at hundreds of vehicle reviews for Recalls,Safety,Reliability,Quality and had to have all wheel drive. He found complaints on several vehicles.We had everyone tell us Subaru was one of the best vehicles to buy so I bought my Subaru legacy in California and had it a month and on my way back home to Washington I lost control and hit the center cement barrier at 65mph the speed limit. I came out of it all with only some bruises.The safety equipment worked wonderfully. If it was any of the vehicles i was thinking of buying I don't think I would be alive today. THANK YOU SUBARU!!! I'm buying another Subaru as soon as possible."

"While I loved this car when first purchased, it seems to be nickel and diming me to death. Actually, it is more than nickel and diming me. There are several major repairs looming that I just would not have expected of a Subaru and I have made sure that regular maintenance was completed. I am told by my mechanic that while they are good cars, the issues I am having are typical of the brand. My wife drives an Accord with over 230K miles with none of the major issues I am experiencing. The car is fun to drive, but I don't think I would buy another Subaru, despite their great reputation. If you keep a car only a few years and you like the all wheel drive feature, then this car is for you. If you like to keep your cars till they drop then you may want to look at other brands."
