2014 Subaru Legacy Review


If you're considering a 2014 Subaru Legacy, your top non-negotiable feature is obviously all-wheel drive. The car's standard all-wheel-drive system is the primary reason anyone would consider the Legacy over competitors, says Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman. It's certainly not the midsize sedan's exterior styling, which differentiates itself from peers only in its datedness, Bragman says. The 1990s-fabulous interior follows suit, while the powertrain is unremarkable. Still, if you live in the snowbelt, that all-wheel drive may look mighty enticing after this year's brutal winter, especially for the price. Read Bragman's review and decide for yourself.

Admitting that my former 2011 Legacy was a bit outdated compared to the newer 2014 model year, still I will never own another Subaru after numerous flaws with my car. One huge and annoying problem was the belt driven power steering that made the entire car rattle when turning the steering wheel. My dealer couldn't fix this problem because Subaru claimed "this is how they're made". That problem and other minor issues had me trade in my Legacy for an Accord.

you are a bs, kj, because I am biased with subaru


Just because it is not the latest "style", it does not mean that there is anything wrong with the style.

The Legacy has larger doors with a slightly more forward hinge point which makes ingress and egress much easier for handicapped and elderly people. I chose this model for that reason.

I don't like the paddle shifters and I would have preferred higher profile tires, maybe a 60 series on 16" rims instead of 50 series on 17" rims. A backup camera on the lower priced models would be nice too.

Mine is a 2014 Legacy Premium.
