2013 Legacy 2.5i Pre
Twilight Blue


Hi I posted some pics and info in a thread in the FAQ/newbie forum about my 2013 Legacy! "Newbie here with some questions" I think I called it.

Anyways, long story short: it's a great car. Runs and drives really smooth with the CVT. It has a very mature feel to it. It has waaaaay more room than the Impreza. The back seat is huge.

Now a couple cons: it's not a fast car by any means. - especially if you get the CVT. Off the line is very slow. You can get the rpms up pretty high, but the cvt makes the rpms stay in that range as long as you're stepping on the gas pedal which is not good for the car. I test drove the manual and didn't like the feel of the clutch (that is due to me being used to my Honda clutch with 156,000 miles). The gas mileage isn't as good as advertised in the real world. I drive mostly on the freeway 45 miles round trip 5 days a week. I'm getting 25.5 - 27.6 mpg). There is no freakin way I'll ever get the advertised 32, even driving like a grandma.

Anyways - hope this helps
