 Pros With many features coming standard, the Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited Sedan is one of the top review selections in the Legacy trim lineup.

 Pros An easy to use 5-speed automatic transmission comes standard with the more powerful 3.6-liter engine. The combination of the these two produce a near luxury comfort while riding inside.

 Pros Increased cabin space all around means that there is more then enough room for a family to be seated comfortably during long, extended trips if needed. Approaching success with families searching for an adequate mid-size sedan.

 Pros With all-wheel drive coming standard on the Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited Sedan, you must consider this vehicle when living in colder climates. The snow will not slow this car down, and traction is top-notch.

 Pros Some of the highest safety standards in the car industry today. Subaru continues to show off its impressive safety features like the all-wheel drive, traction control, and airbags on all sides.

 Cons The gas mileage situation will undoubtedly turn some buyers away from committing to the 2012 Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited Sedan. Coming in at 18/25, it may not make sense for consumers in the lower half of the country to accept such fuel economy when its caused by the all-wheel drive capability.

 Cons The optional navigation package, even on Limited trims, will disappoint. The buttons are small, and the touchscreen is finicky. For splurging the extra amount, we expected something a little nicer upon review.

 Cons While the 3.6-liter engine provides the necessary power, it can become clunky and noisy around corners at times.

 Cons The interior trim may not impress buyers looking for something a bit nicer found inside competing models. Subaru has never been known for its pretty looks, even though the Legacy model has tried to change that fact. We applaud them for attempting the change, yet it still needs work.
