2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Rock solid feel, handles like a BMW, can't beat the AWD in bad weather. Plenty of power for everyday use, engine has the nice Subaru Boxer growl. If you want to fly, opt for the Turbo. The mileage is accurate if you go easy, when driven hard expect 20-23 MPG, if you cruise on a daily basis,expect 2-4 MPG more.
Interior design is top notch, good ergonomics, and comfort. 17" alloys are a plus, along with power driver's seat and moonroof for just $300. Definitely get the rear spoiler, makes the car.
Heated seats and mirrors would have been nice, but otherwise, good solid car.
