2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
I traded a VW Passat V6 for this car and it beats the Passat in almost every way: handling, acceleration, traction, braking, comfort and standard equipment. Build quality and materials are equal to the VW -- and that's saying a lot because the VW is a great car! The Legacy feels glued to the road unlike any sedan or wagon I've driven with the exception of a BMW 3-series. In fact, a friend who own a Porsche Boxster was comparing (favorably) the Legacy's handling to his car after I let him take a spin. When he let me take a reciprocal drive in the Boxster, I understood.
Favorite Features
Power and handling: The Legacy is a stealth hotrod. It's provoked some incredulous looks when spurred, but mainly it remains anonymous.
Suggested Improvements
Auto-up front windows, auto locking when put in gear, front dome light, mini-plug input for the stereo and a cool switchblade-style key like the VW.
