All I can say is wow! Though I know know they could beef up the engine as it is nearly identical to the STI engine with that 300 HP. Though the Legacy has plenty of gitty up already I would like to see a little more beef under the hood. I can't say enough -- probably the best quality and the fastest car listed under $30,000.
THE PERFORMANCE. It has excellent acceleration from the line. Very comfortable inside and appealing looks in and out.
Again it has the capability to be faster with the engine, but Subaru toned it down as a family sedan. You can even feel it wants to go faster than the CPU lets it. Maybe some Aux, plug ins for iPods. Wider down pipes and exhaust would be nice you need to let it breathe. More STI Influence!
