Excellent car, but VIN problems
By subi2006 on


2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Great car for the money. This is my second Legacy. Comparing to 2001 the 2006 model feels more sporty due to more powerful engine, sport mode transmission and low profile tires. The only drawback is that 2006 Special and Limited Editions share the first 7 digits in the VIN which are used by everyone to ID the car. As the result a 22K SE comes up as 25.3K Limited and the owner pays higher insurance premiums, property taxes, registration fees, etc. Ask me how I know.

Best Features

Great in snow due to AWD. Fun to drive. Nice exterior design.

Worst Features

Fix the mess with VIN numbers - it results in higher cost of ownership comparing to similarly priced vehicles.
