2011 Subaru Legacy

Trim: Limited 3.6R
by DaddyChicken on 01-03-2017
Reliable, Comfortable, Fun to drive
Comfort: The car is roomy. Headroom is very good. The Seats are wide, you can sit 3 comfortably in the back. The trunk is large too. The front bucket seats adjust every which way to accommodate a variety of body sizes and shapes. The 6 cylinder is quiet.
Performance: The optional 6 with the automatic transmission is very decent. You have lots of power for passing. Not to mention, the vehicle has AWD. Traction in snow, and ice as well as wet pavement is excellent. The automatic works decent. No buzzy noises, and it is decisive. If you opt for the smaller 4 (2.5L with CVT) you will notice the droning sound. The 2.5L has adequate power. It definitely won't win any rally races.

Fuel Economy: One of the downfalls of full time AWD is that the car uses more fuel than a FWD vehicle. With spirited driving the 6 cylinder engine will not achieve the posted 11L /100Km. I get about 13 in summer time.

Exterior styling: It has character, especially when compared to an Accord or Camry. Definitely when compared to the new generation of Legacy's. The side skirts are a nice touch.The bold arches on the wheel wells give the car character.

Interior design: The hard plastics on the dash are cheap. The excessive use of silver in the radio/climate/gear shift areas look crappy. The "Fake wood" in the limited really is sucky looking. I love the seats, the soft touch materials to the touch on the doors, and center console. The stock radio and "Bluetooth connect" look 1980s. If you get the optional NAV Deck the performance on it is bad! In addition there is no voice button on the steering wheel. The moon roof is a source of excessive noise. The Harmon Kardan amp/speakers sound great in the car. I am unsure what the point of the analog fuel consumption gauge was for. I would have much rather had a temp gauge.

Bottom line - love the car!

2011 Subaru Legacy

Trim: 2.5i Premium PZEV Sedan

Just one drive and I was sold
I owned a Lexus ES300 but needed an all wheel drive vehicle for my steep driveway in the winter. looked at some SUVs and then took a Legacy for a test drive. It was like having the best of both worlds! The comfort and handling of this car is incredible. It gets great fuel economy also. The reliability of Subarus speak for themselves and they have the highest build quality of any Japanese vehicle. The paddle shifters are kind of pointless with a CVT, but the car has them anyway. The stereo is great as soon as you replace the stock speakers with some higher end replacements. Did I mention the handling of this car? It took a week to wipe the smile off my face after I drove it home. The low center of gravity and symetrical all wheel drive cannot be understated. Take it on a windy road and you'll be sold too!

2011 Subaru Legacy

by Jlhsiao on 11-22-2012
Practical and fun
AWD provides pretty stable cornering. Fuel economy is great considering the size and weight of the car, as well as the fact that it is AWD. Sound system is terrific for its class. Only major letdown is the acceleration, but that is to be expected for a 170hp engine on a heavy car.
