2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
My wife had a Subaru WRX but when we had a child, she needed something bigger. The WRX was fun to drive, safe, and reliable so naturally looked at another Subaru. We knew we wanted a wagon with a manual gearbox. We also wanted better fuel economy, lower insurance rates, and something that does not take premium fuel. The Legacy 2.5i wagon manual proved perfect. My wife misses the WRX but once the Legacy had about 2000 miles on it, the engine loosened up nicely and works well with the manual gearbox. Yes, a little more power would be nice but 25 mpg around town and 30+ mpg on the highway is fantastic.
Favorite Features
All-wheel-drive, excellent safety record, Subaru reliability, exterior and interior styling, value for money, ride/handling characteristics, size, giant sunroof, uses regular fuel, good fuel economy, not an SUV.
Suggested Improvements
Needs stability control. Subaru should make it standard on all their cars. Seats could be more comfortable, some wind noise (frameless windows are always suspect), rear seat headroom compromised by giant sunroof, LATCH location/rear seat design makes some child seats difficult to install.
