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


I've had it for a week or so now and taken one road trip. I cross-shopped against a Mazda 06 and a used BMW 3 series (I could get an 02 for around the same price). Compared to the BMW it wasn't quite as nice and the engine wasn't quite as smooth, but it was surprisingly close. Throw in the difference in cost and the Subaru was the value point. I also considered the GT. With the lower mileage, the higher purchase price and the need for premium fuel and the softer tires, the GT cost an additional $10k over the life of the vehicle. May be worth it for some, but not me. I've found the handling great. Acceleration was adequate, but not fantastic. I love the interior. A fun to drive car.

Best Features

Exterior styling, cool sunroof, interior fit and finish.

Worst Features

Use the 5-speed auto across the lineup. Aux inputs on the audio. A roll up screen divider like on the Mazda 6 or Volvo wagon-maybe as an accessory.
