Lovin it so far
By Dave on


2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Looks and feels like a European sport wagon, but with Japanese reliability. I cross shopped the Mazda 6 and used BMW 3-series wagons. This was the best value in the bunch. The BMW was a little smoother and a little tighter on the road, but not by much. And it cost $10k more new. This car was the value point. I considered a GT, but did the math and it has a life cycle cost of about $10,000 more over the life of the vehicle. I don't need the extra power that much. Others might, it's a personal thing I guess. After about two weeks and one road trip I got nuthin but smiles. Handles great, feels good.

Best Features

Best sunroof around. Exterior styling. Interior materials and styling.

Worst Features

A roll-up net to separate the rear cargo area, like on the Mazda 6 wagon, maybe as an accessory-dealer upgrade. Could use another 20 HP to match the market better. Add the 5-speed AT across the lineup.
