The downside of the H6 is not great gas mileage, but for what you are getting, it is not bad. On the highway with cruise control have managed to get about 30 mpg. In a mix of city and highway it gets 23 mpg. In city only it gets 18 mpg. Again, for AWD not bad, but not great. Want better gas mileage, get the H4 engine. see full Subaru Legacy review

The fuel economy with a 4 cylinder 170 hp engine is pretty disappointing at 22-23 mpg. The AWD system is responsible for some of the loss but I also drive an AWD Acura TL SH-AWD with a 6 cylinder 305 hp engine that is only marginally worse at 18-19 mpg. see full Subaru Legacy review
