2004 Subaru Legacy L AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
This Legacy has a great ride, almost perfect steering, and is practically unstoppable in the snow. The negatives are inferior interior materials (compared to Honda and Toyata) and an engine with not a lot of power (although it performs well for a four cylinder). My biggest complaint is that the 5 speed manual is geared too low for normal highway driving. The engine screams at 3,000 RPMS at 70 MPH (and everyone blows past you). It really needs another gear. Also the manual transmission is sometimes hard to put into first gear. Shifting feels like you're shifting through gravel. Cloth seats are also uncomfortable.
Favorite Features
The all wheel drive system is the best feature. Reliability is also a great feature.
Suggested Improvements
The Legacy needs a new manual transmission. It needs a 6th gear. This won't be a problem for me any longer when the '05 5 speed AUTOMATICS come out. Paint that doesn't chip so easily would also be nice.
