This is my Subaru Legacy 2.5 SE estate, which I"ve owned since March 2017. It runs on lpg, currently costing 67 p per litre at my local garage, and gives around 28 mpg, so around 55 mpg cost equivalent for running on petrol. I buy just a few gallons of petrol twice a year, and that gives me enough to start the car from cold, and run it for a half a mile or so until it"s warm enough to automatically switch over to lpg, for several months - plus a reserve in case I run out of lpg, when it automatically switches back to petrol. A full tank gives nearly 300 miles, but I usually refill with lpg at around 240 miles. I have the original installation certificate and receipt, and useful BRC lpg handbook.
I like Subarus very much, and fear that selling this is another of my errors of judgement. I"ve rather absent-mindedly bought a Lexus (also lpg), but I"m very uncertain that I"m going to like it so much. Although the 2.5 engine in the Subaru is non-turbo, it drives rapidly enough, handles well, is comfortable, has enough creature comforts, and is still a rather handsome vehicle. It cruises comfortably and unobtrusively between 80 and 100 mph, and is ideal for collecting lots of grandchildren and their baggage from airports. The engine is beautifully flexible, so I often just use 3 gears out of the 5.
I bought it from a man in Cambridge who is a Subaru freak - he had a gleaming Impreza in his garage that he had restored. He had also re-commissioned this Legacy, which had been standing for a while, which I think accounts for the rather low mileage. Among the things he did were - put in new clutch; overhaul the cylinder heads, including hardened valve seats to cope with lpg, so the car doesn"t need special lpg valve lubricant that some cars do;put in new cam belt. I have receipts relating to all this. In my time I"ve had a couple of wheel bearings replaced, and ABS sensors, new front brake discs and pads, front ball joints, and recently 4 new tyres. Oh, and new wipers.Oh - also a battery.
I especially like the large sunroof, which I nearly always have open. And I"ll never again have a car that doesn"t have heated seats! I jeered when I first heard about them in cars, but find them very consoling on cold days. The air-con works well, but I hardly ever use it.
There is a tow-bar, but I"ve never used it, so can only assume that the electrics are fine. There is a space-saver spare wheel, as the lpg tank occupies the spsre wheel compartment. There are movement sensors in the cabin, as part of the security system. There is comprehensive and very useful owners manual.
I"m trying to think of problems; this is what I can come up with : closing the final section of the sunroof needs several short pushes of the switch, rather than one long one, or the roof might re-open itself; the clip you secure the bonnet stay into when the bonnet is shut is broken, so I use one of my wife"s hair bands to keep the stay secure; the digital clock likes to spin round, so I just stop it and then use my wristwatch; one little plastic blob which fits the rear part of the boot cover into the tailgate is broken (a teenage grand-daughter"s too large suitcase did it) - might be repairable, or a secondhand cover may be available. And there are a few minor scuffs on the corners of the bumpers.
But these few minor matters don"t significantly detract from what is a superbly practical car, comfortable and economical,in generally good condition, that can give years of service.
