ReviewAfter owing German performance sedans for the past 15 years, I test drove the 2008 Legacy 2.5 GT Limited with the 2.5 turbo boxer four mated with the five-speed automatic trans. I absolutely loved the car. It looked good. The interior was well-appointed. The steering was precise. The handling was exceptional. The ride was very good. The engine was surprisingly responsive and powerful. The price was extremely competitive. The only negative is the automatic transmission. The gear changes are sluggish and delayed. Even when manually changing gears with the paddle shifter, there is significant delay. If not for the auto trans, it gets all "10s".
Best FeaturesThe handling is unsurpassed. Performance out of the turbo four is impressive. The crash test ratings speak for themselves. Truly an exceptional car for the price.
Worst FeaturesThe 5-speed automatic transmission should be scrapped. It is sluggish. All gear changes are slow and delayed. It holds back an otherwise unexpectedly impressive engine.
