2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT spec.B 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
I was looking for a fun, manual transmission 4 door sedan, and had been ready to buy an Acura TL 6 speed. Read a review of all-wheel drive sport sedans, & the Spec B got a great review, so I checked it out. I've owned the car almost 4 months, and it is a blast to drive. I would have liked to have a 6-speed, and I know that the 2007 Spec B will have it, but the 5-speed is responsive, and I blow away BMW's and hemi Chryslers - the all wheel drive and low profile tires really stick. Seating is comfortable, although not as nice and encompassing as my BMW 540. The car is comfortable on longer (2-4 hour) drives, and the sound system is very good (no satellite radio however - a big miss!).
Favorite Features
1. Stick/responsive clutch. 2. Turbo. 3. All wheel drive traction and cornering. 4. Sound system. 5. Nice hand holds over the doors, good fit and finish on the car, good cup holders in front. 6. Driving experience is great - the car is really engaging, and you stay involved; great suspension & brakes.
Suggested Improvements
1. Begs for the 6 speed 2. Satellite radio 3. Fold down rear seats.
