2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 I 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

The spec.B is worth the premium over the 5 spd GT; much better handling, better tranny / shifter, better wheels / tires, nicer interior. An "adult muscle car" that will also excel in bad weather. Mileage is right at the EPA of 17 for city cycle after 500 miles of mostly urban commute, and I'm not always easy on the throttle. Performance could be called "stealth": quiet and comfortable until you hamnmer it! After comparing to the G35X, A4 3.2L, Passat 4Motion and Mazdaspeed 6, this car is the clear winner to me with great build quality, performance, balance of ride and handling and the ability to get a 6M tranny vs. an auto.

Favorite Features

Great seats. Good balance of power and mileage. Great looks without screaming "look at me!". 6M and engine work well together; minimal turbo lag. Homelink mirror.

Suggested Improvements

Integrated bluetooth cellphone interface; in some states hands-free cell phone use is the law and at this car's price it should be standard equip. Shift linkage seems notchy, more than my old Mustang GT.
