2007 Subaru Legacy 2.0L non turbo from Australia and New Zealand

Summary:

Favourite car I've owned!

Faults:

Brakes needed machining.

General Comments:

I have owned 22 cars and this has got to be my favourite!! I can't understand why they aren't more popular...

They look great! I love the design of them, the wheels on mine are nice factory ones that still make it look a tad sportier, and the dark rear tints really suit it.

The greatest thing on this car is the sound system! It is amazing!! So many speakers and the sound quality is exceptional... anyone would think there was an after market sub hooked up in the car.

The gas consumption is good, especially on long trips. They are spacious and have a really nice modern looking interior. Definitely has power when needed!! I love the sound of it when it's idling (doesn't have an aftermarket exhaust) and the roar when you put your foot down.

Overall an exceptional, affordable, great looking car! I wouldn't hesitate to own another one.

2007 Subaru Legacy BL 2.0r from UK and Ireland

Summary:

Excellent beautiful motor, A1

Faults:

Got the car cheap with the dual mass flywheel needing replacing with a single mass flywheel; still hasn't given in, and will not be an expensive fix.

As of now, nothing has gone wrong, touch wood.

General Comments:

The car is thirsty compared to my previous 2007 Civic. The AWD makes sure you don't lose grip in the dry or wet.

Beautiful looking car, plenty of space inside. The boot could be bigger, was looking at a Mazda 6, but this car caught my eye straight away, and there are not many of them about.

A lot of cars with dual mass flywheels seem to be having trouble, and that's from a lot of manufacturers. Most replace with a single mass flywheel. The Legacy (Liberty) will use more petrol than the Civic because of extra weight, larger engine and the AWD system creating more driveline resistance. Plus Subaru tend to tune their engines for higher outputs with a linear power/torque buildup. This usually means they end up using more fuel.

2007 Subaru Legacy Special Edition 2.5i from North America

Summary:

Buy something else, save your money

Faults:

Approx. every 15,000 miles the engine on this car would blow up. The number one rod bearing would give out. They would rebuild the engine the first time, then 15 K miles later it happened again. I kept telling them that the car was using 2 quarts of oil every 1,500 miles, but they told me I was a "idiot" and didn't know how to read the dipstick.

After the 3rd time the engine blew at 48,000 miles, I took the car back to the dealer again and it was the same problem as all the other times, #1 rod bearing again. I am not the only person who has had this happen to me, I know of 2 others within the last 6 months that this happened to. They each sold their car as soon as it happened after hearing what happened to mine as well. I wish I would have after the first time. I will never buy another Subaru again. Especially after they refused to warranty the engine again and replace it, even though I got the extended warranty with the car.

General Comments:

Car is great if you need AWD like where I live out in the sticks. Great for corners and in the snow, but other than that I wouldn't recommend a Subaru.

Sounds like some real winners at your local dealer. See if you have a lemon law in your state, and report them to the BBB. Tell them to give you a different car, or your money back. That, or you sue the pants off of them. If they don't comply, SUE THEM. Take it to an independent tech to verify that you are, indeed, not an idiot, and that your car sux. Make sure they are certified ASE techs and build a case; take pics, get statements. Wage war. Then, don't let this kill Subaru for you. I have had 6 and love them, and plan on buying more.
