I have owned the car since Sept. 2015 and I am glad that I bought car this rather than several other vechile that I researched and test drove. It represents a great value for content choice. Looks good, not over done and the interior is clean and intuitive. It handles well in the Western North Carolina mountains, has plently of smooth passing power and rides very smoothly. I think it is totally understated and classy. Gas mailage has been much better than EPA rating and I really enjoy the power of this car. Fun to drive, great infotainment unit for the price and the eyesite feature is brilliant . Plus you get all wheel drive, While I see many comments from others that all wheel drive is not necessary, I find the traction feel better than any, any other car, SUV or truck, and I driven a great variety. Floor the gas and feel the traction. Great to speed out of curves too. This is the best vechile for the money out there today, but that's just my opinion. I have had only one issue and that was a sticking fuel filler door and that was repaired by Subaru.

Traded in a 2013 Sonata for the security and safety of all-wheel drive and this car does not disappoint. 27 mpg local and 33 mpg highway is awesome! Bought the Limited , so all the bells and whistles - literally! EyeSight is excellent, so get used to beeps telling you what to do (you can turn some of them off). Interior is nice except for some ugly dark paneling. The T/T steering wheel is better than the Sonatas, but not by much. Navigation system is not very good - very user unfriendly. Other than that, the car is everything I expected it to be. Highly recommend it.

I researched the 2016 Subaru Legacy Premium with the Eyesight option prior to driving it. I was impressed with the superior collision avoidance system and its safety features. But when I drove the car, I was blown away. I had no idea driving could be this enjoyable. The car is comfortable, balanced and stable to drive. This is my first Subaru and I highly recommend this car to anyone. Thank you Subaru for engineering and building such a great car. I LOVE THIS CAR!

I am amazed with the Subaru Legacy. This car is spectacular such as: fuel economy, power, safety, and technology. Eyesight is the best thing invented. Everything is easy to use and in arms reach. And the cloth seating is soft and supported. What I love about it is well equipped car and space is amazing in and out. Great job. Just received the car as a birthday gift so cant wait for adventures to come with my Subaru.

This is car is amazing. It gets great mileage I am averaging 33 mpg total. All Wheel Drive has improved traction when driving in the rain. I can tell this car will last. What I like is the technology and Eyesight of the Subaru Legacy. The interior is nice and upscale with soft cloth seating and neatly thought out. I really love my Subaru. I made a right choice buying this car.

Makes for easy long commutes. I have a daily 80 mile (each way) commute and have logged over 3k miles since purchasing. Made a good decision with this as it exceeded my expectations in many ways. Very affordable AWD commuter. Pros: Good handling in the snow. Very respectable mileage. Throaty sounding engine during accelerating. I like this as it makes it seem a bit sporty. Oil filter on the top of the engine with a catch reservoir. This is some very forward thinking by the Subaru team. Really makes me wonder who was asleep during the engineering process to allow the counter-intuitive audio system controls (see cons below). Trunk space is amazing and the security well thought-out. Things stay secure in your trunk even if someone breaks into the car. Love the Cruise Control. More good Subaru engineering here. Once set, you can use it to adjust your speed in 1mph increments up or down. Awesome for road trips. Cons: The steering-wheel controls for the audio system are counter-intuitive. Volume adjust is up/down on the wheel yet left/right on the display. Channel select is left/right on the wheel and (of course) up/down on the display. Seriously Subaru? How did you miss this one? The right-hand wiper leaves a line that is dead center in front of the drivers? line of sight. Front passenger seat is a few inches lower than the drivers? seat with no way to adjust. Not a huge deal, just a bit annoying. The light in the trunk is not bright enough. Touchscreen buttons should be larger for easier selection. Still not sure what the ?Vehicle Mode? screen is supposed to show me. Tires are always green when driving. Sunglasses holder is too close to the SOS/Star link Info buttons. So far, only pressed the Starlink Info button a few times (not the SOS).

Purchased 3.6R ltd with Eyesight and almost everything possible - that was a great decision. Car feels solid, robust and very safe. H6 Engine may not seem great on paper with lower hp/torque compared to others, but is very responsive and hauls this one with gusto. Interior quality is really good and comparable to some 'luxury' brands costing 10K more. AWD system is terrific in snow (PA hills) and better than many 'trucks' when it came to traction and braking. This car is very much underrated - only if H6 performance was even better would have given all 5 stars (not that it matters)

More than I have ever spent on a car but worth every penny. It drives wonderfully. Unbelievable safety features which may save your life and certainly quality of the car looks (by not having an accident). Recoimmend it unconditionally. Compared with Camary, Accord and Acura.
