2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I tend to be a harsh reviewer so please bear that in mind with the ratings. I reserve "10" for perfection or near to it. That said, the LGT is a great value especially with end of the year incentives. The engine is responsive even with the auto transmission. On highway, it's very smooth and quiet. I tend to drive fast over long stretches of highway for my daily commute so this car is great for a quiet and easy drive. Flex the ankle though and the car really moves. Handling is sharp for a 4 door sedan. I only get 21 MPG on mostly highway driving and cruising at 70 to 80. I've also had some odd rattles but nothing terrible. All in all, great car for the money despite few quirks.

Best Features

Responsive and smooth engine. Car comes loaded. Moonroof, AWD, auto dual zone climate, sport shift, leather driver and passenger heated seats, heated windshield and mirrors, auto dimming mirror, 6 disc CD, it goes on.

Worst Features

Need audio controls on steering wheel. Diversity antennae rather than staticky mess that's there now. Better fuel economy. Fewer rattles for interior space. Wouldn't mind stability control and slightly stiffer suspension.
