Love the car

2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Going on two years with our legacy GT LTD. Sweet car, super fast... when I drive our other car, I miss the acceleration. Turbo lag is slightly noticeable, but once the turbo kicks in, it's smile time. Handling is great, acceleration is great, driving it in the mountains is super fun. AWD is great also, but get the snow tires if you live in an icy area... the standard tires don't handle worth anything on ice. Get the short throw shifter, also. This car is a lot of fun for a very low cost compared to the G35 and Acura RL. The gas mileage isn't too heinous, we average about 25mpg, less if you're really thrashing it.
Tons of great features at a low cost, low-key looks (it's the best looking Subaru out there), heated leather seats (a must in the winter around here), and did I mention how fast this thing is? Being able to blow away 99% of the cars on the road rocks.
MP3 hookup (a feature Subaru is adding soon), tires that work on ice, rear seats that fold down all the way, better reliability -- it stinks to have the cruise disabled when the CEL comes on.
