2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited 4dr Sedan AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Researched small AWD sport sedans for over 3 months and drove the Audi A4, BMW 328i, Acura TSX, Lexus IS 250 and Volvo 2.5. The Legacy GT out performs all of them at a price that is $10,000 less than the 3 series. Build quality is superb, and the ride is extremely quiet for a 3200 pound sedan. The negatives are: the rear seat is a tad firm, but more than adequate for anyone less than 6 feet on an all day trip and lack of storage compartments. This is my second Subaru (the first being a forester, which has 71,000 miles on it, and has been trouble free). The Legacy GT is quick, quiet and handles superbly - a truly remarkable car at an attractive price, compared to its competition.

Best Features

Engine and transmission are smooth and quiet. Performance is excellent and handling is right up there with the best from Europe and Japan in the AWD sport sedan category. Truly this car should be considered "World Class".

Worst Features

Additional storage compartments would be appreciated and a softer rear seat, but a very small trade off for a car that is $10,000 less than a 3 series comparably equipped.
