Mostly good - a couple of negatives
By ks1 on


2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited 4dr Sedan AWD w/Black Int. (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Had this legacy (wagon) for 7 months now, replaced an 08 GTI for a turbo car with AWD.
Overall pretty happy with it.
AWD is amazing in winter, especially combined w/ winter tires.
However, I find the suspension QUITE spongy. For a sports car more than an acceptable amount of body roll on corners, and squat while accelerating.
Just not as buttoned down as a german car.
Mileage is disappointing, 17-21 MPG with a mix of city and freeway.
The interior is pretty nice, good leather, could use a bit more lateral support on the seats.
Turbo has a nice linear build, not much noticeable lag.
Compared to the GTI though, the 'fun to drive factor' isnt as high up as with the VW.

Best Features

Turbo, AWD, a great sleeper

Worst Features

TIghten up the SUSPENSION. Or make a Spec B Wagon. No stability control on these models either.
