2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 I Limited 4dr Sedan AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
This vehicle has been outstanding in every way so far. Stylish, responsive, quiet, safe and the balanced design makes it a pleasure to drive. This is our first import and our first 4 cylinder so we researched quite a few vehicles. Once we settled on Subaru, we looked hard at the 2.5 GT turbo. That said, we have no regrets about the decision to go with the standard 2.5i. Plenty of power.
Love the sporty exterior design and the color (diamond grey metallic) but the AWD and safety features sold us. The 60/40 split rear seat has come in handy and also locks to secure the trunk from the passenger compartment. The remote start was included with our car and that is a great option as well.
The standard 4 speed automatic is certainly adequate but would like to see the 5 speed transmission with the 2.5i too. Console storage and drink holders in front are cumbersome at times.
