Long Term Update 6: 2010 Subaru Legacy GT

Copy chief Emiliana Sandoval noted that the Legacy, while well-received, has a few small flaws. "My go-everywhere water bottle is 9 inches tall. When I place it in the cupholder, my arm bangs into it every time I shift.

The powertrain is great for navigating through traffic, and the engine is a blast once the boost kicks in."
