2008 Subaru LegacyRet - Virginia Beach VA11/14/2008
Subaru Legacy gives you the most comfortable ride ever. It's one of the easiest cars to maneuver and handle. Legacy is roomy, solid and safe. They thought of everything for comfort and manageability when they made this car!
I took the 2007 Subaru Legacy wagon for a test drive, and was extremely disappointed. It is a beautiful car from the outside and the interior stylings look great. However, once you try to get in it, your impressions will change dramatically.
The driver and passenger seating area is extremely cramped. My wife is 5'10" and could not get comfortable behind the wheel. I'm only 5'5", but have large legs, and I felt like I didn't have much room to move when controlling the gas and the brake pedals.
When I got in the back seat, I did not feel like I had any leg room. I'm used to driving a 2007 Honda Accord, and this car seemed like a compact car compared to my Accord.
The engine performance was somewhat disappointing also. For a V6, it felt more like a 4 cylinder when I tried to accelerate on the highway. My Accord is a V6 and it felt nothing like that.
The car's handling was among the best, however. It moves great on the highway and in the city. If only I could get comfortable in the driver's seat.
I would only recommend this vehicle to someone who is short (5'5" or less) and fairly thin. Anyone else would feel cramped. Also, no one taller than that can really sit in the back seat either.
