#218 2020 Subaru Legacy First Impressions; Should You Buy a Vehicle with No Maintenance History?

published 2 weeks ago by Consumer Reports

This week we discuss the 2020 Subaru Legacy, and share our first impressions on the all-wheel drive sedan. We also discuss the controversy surrounding changing emissions and fuel economy standards. And we answer audience questions about the risk of buying a car without a maintenance history, a replacement for a beloved Ford Flex, if driving habits should change when switching from all-wheel drive gas vehicle to a rear wheel drive electric car, and if driving a manual during a long commute is a good idea.     --------------------------------------- Have a question for our experts?
