2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
This is a very high performance wagon with outstanding road holding characteristics. The turbocharged engine provides excellent power and is well matched with the 5-speed automatic transmission. The sport shift and manual features of the transmission are very useful on winding roads or grades because you can hold the gear you want without the automatic shifting mid-corner or when you lift your foot. The suspension has considerable travel and soaks up road irregularities quite well although I would prefer a little more roll resistance. The car is very quite with minimal wind noise and very little road noise despite the 17 inch wheels.
Favorite Features
Power, handling, automatic transmission and good fit and finish with tasteful interior and excellent headlights. Lots of standard features for the price, feels like a more expensive car.
Suggested Improvements
Better gas mileage, but this is hard to achieve in a all-wheel drive vehicle because of weight and added drag of the drive train. Smoothing airflow under the car might help and if boost were slightly reduced, you could probably run a leaner mixture with slightly reduced performance.
