Rock Solid And Good — Performance is good, but could be little better, braking is good and handling suberb. Build quality is good, no squeeks or rattles and has not broken down. Apperance is good at front but could be better at the back, but interior is very good. Gas mileage is good and maintenance is little as nothing. The car is perhaps no fun machine, but still a very good car to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: AWD

Cons: AWD

2005 Legacy Wagon Review — Accelaration and braking is adaquate. Handling could be better. Reliability is good so far, knock on wood no sqeal or rattling so far. Only downside of owning this car is the premium gas it requires and the not too great gas mileage

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Adaquate performance, need better handling

Cons: Gas mileage, North America can't get wagon anymore

It's The Shiznit — It's a Subaru, that's not a WRX. It's still got a turbo, a manual transmission, heated seats, leather interior, can fit a lot of stuff in the back, has see through windows, sit down seats and anything else anyone would want in a car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: manual transmission

Cons: manual transmission

Subaru Legacy 3.0r Spec.b 6mt Wagon — Subaru Legacy 3.0R Spec.B 6MT Wagon Performance: 0-60 in 6.9 seconds Build quality: It´s a Subaru, not flashy but built to last. Appearance: Best Legacy so far. Cost of ownership: Fuel consumption is a bit on the high side. Fun factor: Killing "hot hatches" at stoplights and on winding roads in a wagon is priceless :)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, Comfortable, handling, looks, space

Cons: Fuel consumption and bad factory radio

Nuff Said — performance and the sleeper look, what happens when wrx drivers grow up...the get leg 2.5gts! 250hp 250lbft..awd..audi killer. permium fuel a requirement is a downside the way prices are now, and if driven enthusiastically mileage pays the price - but drive relaxed and mileage is great...a true wolf in sheep's clothing

Pros: to be different..break the mold...the anti accord camry 3series

Cons: 05 lacks aux input for ipod and sat radio..

Love This Car. — 2.5 liter four cylinder turbocharged boxer engine, AWD, and manual transmission. Get's through the corners well, and there are tons of upgrade parts. I really like the understated styling, you don't get noticed, unless you want to. I get about 25 mpg while getting on it all the time.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: So fun to drive, lots of upgrades for the tuner in all of us, and AWD gets me where I need to go

Cons: If you are on a tight budget, look elsewhere. Premium fuel, and potentially expensive repair bills.

It's A Love Hate Relationship. If Mine Actually Ran Properly I Would Like It. — Bought this car used.. Don't ever buy a used car.. Previous owner beat the piss out of it and it's been in the repair process since I've owned it. Engine is still good, I just have oil going somewhere and alot of it. Now the transmission is starting to go. As soon as I repair the main shaft bearing, it should be good to go... Hopefully.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power is excellent, All wheel drive and can still get 30mpg, Ass heaters :), everything heated and power actually

Cons: Can't switch the stereo on the GT's cause it's connected to the dual climate control, VF-40 turbo doesn't last too long, rides like a boat but much better than most luxury sedans, and look for a Spec B with a six speed cause the transmission is Subaru's weak point.
