2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
For years I had a Porsche 944. It got old and had 245,000 miles. Time to go. This Legacy drives very similar to the 944 in the mountains. You can set this car up in the corners very well. It's transient response in the switchbacks is remarkable - and this is a sedan! In tight hilly switchbacks - you can feel the car transitioning power front and rear. Do I have to complain? It could use a 6 speed. I'd buy this car all over again.
AWD works - you can feel it - even on dry pavement. Try sharp switchbacks on hills.
Needs 6 speed. Needs more colors, like red, green, etc.
