Other Subaru Legacy (2003 - 2010) models:

  • Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    To the uninformed - you've bought a pretty bland car. To the informed - you've bought one of the best Q cars.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Most haven't a clue what it is or what it can do, it doesn't make much of a visual impression.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    No, need more room and doing more traveling so a diesel is required. If I had bought the Tourer version I doubt I'd be changing it.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Want to keep 4 wheel drive so probably some sort of SUV.

    4 out of 5 4.0

    a breeze
