    My 2nd Subaru Legacy 2.5 Gt Limited — What can I say... I love the car. This is my 2nd one. I got in a real bad accident with my first. It saved my life. As far as performance goes it is great. I just keep adding more. It's so fun to drive. I would work a little more on the handling. It doesn't like to corner to well. The upgraded sway bars do help it though. In my opinion the only thing I don't like about the interier is the wood trim. It's a little to luxury to me but I deal. Overall it is a great car, it's got great safety features, and it is VERY FUN to drive.

    Pros: Performance.

    Cons: The wood trim interier. They should save it just for the 2.5i and the 3.0. :)

    Legacy Gt — Overall good car for the bucks. few rattles here and there. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive makes it safe. 5 Star Crash test 4-wheel disc, ventilated front and rear. 4-channel, 4-sensor ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) very fun to drive low cost of ownership. 2.5-liter DOHC intercooled, turbocharged aluminum-alloy 16-valve 4-cylinder horizontally opposed SUBARU BOXER engine with Active Valve Control System. Iridium spark plugs. 250HP/250ft-lb 4-wheel independent suspension Body-color side mirrors with integrated turn signals

    2006 Spec.b Legacy Gt — number 340/500 in the world, best car ever. Build quality is great, More power than you'll ever need, but you can keep it out of boost around town, dont pay alot in insurance, but theyre about impossible to find. The most fun car i've driven, and i've driven shelby gt500s and corvettes

    Pros: bumper to bumper

    Cons: yeah right

    Not Bad For Four Doors, Still Sporty. — I think that the fuel economy could be alot better, if it wernt for the turbo's high boost for power delivery at all times, but it handles great and still gets about 25-26 mpg. stereo needs improvements however i do not have the factory sub woofer. Suspension is a little on the stiff side which shows the cheap plastic interior no favoritism. lots of rattles and creaks. there are recalls and TSB's but it still has not fixed that problem.

    Pros: snow wont stop you, police don't notice you, and there is lots of room for
    friends

    Cons: a snowed in unpaved road can stop you, poor mpg for summer driving,
    rattling dashboard

    Pros: Turbo, AWD, One of the Safest Midsize sedans, uncommon

    Cons: MPG, but who cares!

    A Great Car For The Price — This is my second Subaru, and probably not my last. This car has been 99.9% trouble-free, all I have done is regular maintenance for two years and it's been perfectly reliable the entire time.

    Pros: All-wheel-drive all-weather handling and traction, peppy engine, amazing highway gas mileage (31mpg!) for its size

    Cons: Quirky throttle, smooth shifting is an art form with the manual transmission

    Great Car — The 2.0 H4 Engine is a powerful engine (sometimes I wish I went for the H6 engine). The best thing in this car is it's handling, even on high speeds. I can easily say it's the best among competition. On high speed, the car just graps the road, I've tested it on its top speed of 220Km/H and it was stable better than lots of cars at half that speed.

    Pros: Fuel economy

    Cons: I wish it had the 5 speed on automatic gear box.
