I've been eyeing the Legacy for a while now and finally pulled the trigger a few days ago. Traded in a 3 month old 2014 CX-5 AWD
I actually leased the CX-5, and leased the Legacy as well.
I went to the dealer intending to get a Venetian Red, but walked out with a Crystal Black instead. Maybe I should've gotten the red one instead, I don't know.
I love the car but have a couple questions.
1) The throttle response kinda sucks. When i floor it from a stop, it goes, but it's rather pretty slow. It kinda feels like a VW diesel passat. I guess maybe that's how CVTs are. I also drove a 2013 Impreza as well, but it felt like the Impreza was actually more responsive. Is this normal??
2) I've driven about 60 miles in the city so far, but the trip computer says I'm only averaging 20 mpg. The CX-5 averaged no less than 26 under same conditions. I'm still living in the same city and my driving route hasn't changed at all... What are you all averaging?
3) How do you activate the windshield and side mirror heater?
I got the Legacy for it's AWD system and good visibility. Sedans are becoming more and more like coupes with ridiculously high belt lines and dashboards, along with very steep windshields. I love Subarus because with them function comes first over form.
Pics to come soon!
