The 2.5s with cvt get very good mpg at 55 or 60 mph. Our legacy will get 30 to 34. Compare thst to other mid to large sedans with AWD and it stacks up nicely.I would have to disagree and say they are pretty terrible on fuel tbh. Although maybe not all of them.
That is NOT the reason I bought a new car.My Tahoe got totaled in an accident, and I wanted something MUCH more fuel efficient, since at the time I had a 120 mile commute. If you read the the first post, you would have know that, and kept your rude comment to yourself.:shakeheadNot wanting to sound overly rude, but that is quite a delusional reason for buying a 'new' car.
I feel compelled to add the experiences of my extended family with Subaru vehicles:
On our second subaru, looking for the third.
wife had an 09 impreza, i got an 09 forester.
got rid of the impreza when she was pregnant, she had difficulty driving and we used the money for other things.
the forester is now the family car and i drive a "bunky" 96 toyota paseo** to work and back.
looking at replacing the bunky when it finally dies with another subaru, probably a forester or a liberty (i think its a legacy in the rest of the world)
**230,000km hail damaged, slipping clutch, but it only cost me a carton of bundy rum+coke cans, and the airconditioning and heating is incredible - freezing cold or toasty warm in 5 mins after starting it up.
makr6: I am excited to see which OB you get. Please keep us posted. :twothumbs
