Reliable — We bought this car because we wanted something with AWD and something that wouldn't leave us stranded on the side of the highway. It definitely met those goals...but the suspension is so stiff that the ride is not too enjoyable. Living in Maine, the roads here are really really bad, and so unfortunately the stiff riding subaru is really noticeable.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Unbelievable in the snow...really reliable

Cons: Worst ride ever...feels like a go-cart

A Sleeper If I've Ever Seen One —

This car is a missile! sub 6 second 0-60 times and enough passing power to get you into a lot of trouble. While it does understeer in dry conditions, add a bit of slippery stuff and it's so easy to control. Rain, mud, snow? These are not things the LGT cares about. Makes a nice sound too and if you listen closely you can hear the shushing BOV. The interior is a nice place to be with a well laid out center stack and nice large gauges. The stereo, which sounds dang good for a stocker, has easy to reach, well labeled buttons. It took all of 45 seconds to get all my presets in and tune the 3 band eq. My one biggest complaint is that it seems a lot of the interior trim is loose or not screwed together very well. This results in light leaks around the third brake light and a squeak coming from on top and under the dash. Visibility is fantastic all around although it is a bit tough to tell where the back of the car is when parallel parking. I've averaged about 25 mpg highway of premium but my average speed was up around 75, slowing down a bit would've improved that number. Around town is in the neighborhood of 20. There are a lot of little things i.e. a clip in the rear deck to hold the center shoulder belt, SI-drive, frameless windows, no external antenna, etc. that really set the Legacy apart from the rest. You almost get the feeling that the car was designed by a person not a committee. Yes, there is a premium to pay, and yes you see tons of Legacys (at least in MN) but seldom do you get this kind of power, comfort and stealth all in one package.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A very simplistic dash layout, lots of neat little features, SI-Drive, stereo, that engine!

Cons: trim pieces are loose everywhere, mpg isn't stellar, a bit too much understeer.

2007 Lgt Spec.b — Decently quick car with LOTS of aftermarket potential. Going stage 1 or 2 is very easy and makes a big difference. Having a six speed manual makes it that much more fun to drive. The spec.B suspension is very nice too. The OTS maps for Cobb's AccessPORT increased mileage by 2-3 mpg while making the car faster.

Pros: Good power, fun transmission, nice exhaust tone, and responsive handling.

Cons: Interior leg room is lacking in some aspects, as well is storage space in the cabin.

The Sti Tuned Version Would Be A Better Option In Manual Transmission Obviously — I LOVED THIS CAR! I loved its balance of power Appearance is to die for Cost of ownership isnt that of a tussle but as every Subaru owner knows is if you treat your car bad it'll treat you the same way. Fun factor: You can fit in as many speakers as you want in the trunk :p

Pros: The looks and the paint finish

Cons: The one I drove had some Turbo lag and wait for it... it was an automatic!!!

Excellent — I love everything about this car, the performance is great, the accelerator is very responsive, so is the braking and it corners like dream. It gives very good mileage even if you "kind of" speed on the gighway to work in the mornings.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is so much fun to drive

Cons: nothing

Loved It — Lemon. Turbo-lag. Eats Mustangs, Z's, most anything off the line, but because of the AWD there's not much high-end speed (136 mph is top end). It can boldly go where no "race-car" has gone before, and that's off roading. Awesome rally car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Quick, fun, safe

Cons: high insurance, takes premium octane

Better Than A 3 Series — Underrated family rocket, the boxer engine is superb, awd is amazing, reliability goes without saying. Fun to drive, but high on fuel consumption and wish it had stability control sometimes. Better than a 3 series BMW, faster than an M3 (Well mines is after I modified it!)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Beast of an engine, superb handling

Cons: No stability control

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, reliable, fuel efficient
