2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
The only car I have ever purchased, including 3 Hondas, where everything was perfect straight from the factory. Car is tight as a drum. It proves an American factory can produce a great vehicle. It also proves that Japanese engineering is superior to ours. Could use a bit more low end grunt, but has real speed over 60. Getting 22 to 26 MPG. Friends with Subarus say they really loosen up and improve power and MPG after 5K miles. All-wheel-drive works like a charm. Brakes/handling are average. Power steering is a bit too light. The car moves around in a strong wind on the highway. Ergonomics and small switch design/placement need improvement. Quiet as a Lexus. Great overall package.
Favorite Features
Overall coordinated design, build quality, all-wheel-drive, top end power, exterior and interior styling, 3-mode transmission (auto, manumatic and sportshift).
Suggested Improvements
HVAC controls are too low and small. Small fan knob is especially difficult to turn with gloves on. Window switches are a bit awkward to reach around door handle. Improve road feel in steering. Stronger brakes.
