Quiet, nice looking, good gas mileage. Sound system is good quality and I love the Auxiliary input that allows me to use my Ipod. Manual transmission is effortless to use, gearstick moves easily and securely thru the gears. All in all, a fabulous deal for what I paid.
2008 Subaru LegacyArbee - Anderson, SC04/14/2011
I traded in my 2006 Suburu Forester for a 2008 Legacy for a car that has a lot less mileage. I've been very happy with the way it handles, but there are a few things that are disappointing. Going from a little SUV to a sedan, I miss the rear windshield wipers. In the morning, there's a lot of dew on the rear windshield, and there is no way to get rid of it, unless I stop and wipe it off or wait for it to evaporate.
Secondly, the Forester got about 18 to 19 mpg in the city. The specs for the Legacy say it gets 20 mpg in the city, but this car is getting only about 16.5 mpg. I'm very concerned about this with the price of gas what it is, but I have not yet checked it out. Hopefully, something can be tweaked so I can get better mileage.
It's a pretty sharp looking vehicle, and there seems to be enough room in the trunk for my usual stuff. I bought a wooden bench in a box recently, and it slid into the car pretty well with the back seat down.
All and all, it's a good little car. Gas mileage is the most disappointing thing about it. Hope I can find a way to improve that.
I love this car!

This is the best car, it's the perfect mix of luxury and sporty. It handles awesome, has AWD, but also doesn't have too much road noise and has a lot of nice features for comfort.
