What do people think
about Subaru Legacy ?
My new job was forcing me to drive 100 miles per day just making the trip to and from. I wanted a roomy mid-sized vehicle with a lot of utility (for the dog, etc.) and a very reliable track record. Saftey was also a concern.

I found all of that in the Legacy L Wagon. At purchase it had a little over 20K miles and I've already put another 14K on it...

Subaru Legacy top in US safety test

The Subaru Legacy has been awarded the first-ever 'Top Safety Pick Gold' award by America's Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

It is also the first midsize-class car to score the highest accolade - 'Good' - in every category (as ever, American measure size differently - to us the Legacy is pretty big, but it is only medium compared to US vehicles).

How comparable these results are to Euro NCAP scores is a moot point. Most European cars are not sold in the US, so it is difficult to correlate them. In the US tests, the Legacy scored better than the Audi A3, A4 and A6 and the VW Jetta and Passat. In Europe, the Legacy is rated as four stars in the Euro NCAP test.
