First car (of my own), I love it!

Let me start off by saying you get a lot of looks when you drive around in one of these. Mine is black, and the windows are tinted, and the body of the car just has that sharp awesome look when you drive by. Overall, I love my Subaru! Comfort: Don't get me wrong, its comfortable, but it starts to get uncomfortable when you drive 600 miles from the dealership back home. It has lumbar on both the driver's seat and passenger's seat. Performance: 250 HP, 250 Ft lbs of torque, turbo charged 4 cyl Subaru boxer engine. Like i have seen in some other reviews, before you know it you will be going 90 if you haven't driven one of these before. Exterior styling: This is one of the main reasons i bought this car, for its looks. Mine has a stock spoiler on it so it adds that extra awesomeness to the profile of the car to make it stand out. Interior Design: Well its leather, and it has heated seats. What much more could i say? Oil Change time: When it became time to change oil on it, i found that it is probably one of the easiest vehicles to change oil on, convenient placement of the drain plug, and oil filter. Its not placed so that it makes a huge mess. I change my own oil because I cant trust oil change places. Love the placement. Features: There are alot of nifty things that come with it, heated mirrors, auto dim rear view mirror, compass, garage door buttons on the rear view mirror, windshield wiper warmers, power outlet in the console, cruise control (most cars have this- still love it though), AWD. These are probably some of the main features that stand out. Something else i thought was nifty is when you pull the handbrake, it will shut your running lights off. There is also a display beside the clock that will inform you about gas mileage, and statistics. For my first car, i think i did pretty well, to sum it up.

First off let me say I love almost everything about this car. I've owned it for 3 months now, and I still love it as much as the day I bought it. Pros: 250hp turbo is very nice, especially on the highway Don't get people looking to race AWD is excellent in the snow I haven't had to replace anything on this car yet *knock on wood* Interior is very ergonomic and everything is within reach. Nothing seems out of place It's one of the few cars I can comfortably fit in (I'm 6'3") You don't see very many of them, which makes your car unique Cons: Rear seats leave much to be desired in terms of leg room It's not as nice as a BMW 335xi or an Audi S4, but for half the price I'll gladly drive my Subaru Gas mileage is subpar in winter (currently getting 18.5 average) All in all, if i had to do it again, I would buy this car in a heartbeat

I inherited this car from a family member a couple months ago. Now it's legally mine but i have been around this car since my family bought it brand new. I love this car alot since it has a lot of sentimental value to me. It has great looks a pretty decent acceleration for a small 4 cylinder engine. it's not a turbo i wish it was but still good acceleration. I like the color alot its atlatic pearl blue. It's roomy, spaciuos, quiet and an overall blast to drive. It's a 2006 and it only has 10k miles on it. i love it, it's basically a new car. Mileage is awesome im getting 23mpg all city which is 200 miles on a half tank. That's ridicuolous. Again i love this car and stronglely encourage anyone else considering to buy this car to buy it.

Two Problems

Fun Daily Driver

A Dream to drive. Smooth Power from the turbo 4, although for the average driver, the non-turbo model likely has plenty of pep. Handles amazing; can take highway curves at 100 mph with confidence. The weight and predictability of the car make it an enthusiasts dream in a responsibly wrapped beautiful overall package.

Best car I have ever owned

by from Pennsylvania on February 27, 2012

My 2006 legacy gt is the best car I have ever owned. Still going strong at 155,000 miles with very few maintenance issues.

Just Say "No," to G35

by from Houston, TX on June 9, 2006

All wheel drive, 250+ HP and 250 ft lbs of torque, minimal turbo lag, zero torque steer, power seats for driver and passenger, sunroof, 6 disc CD, Bilstein shocks and STi underpinnings. Leather interior, Momo steering wheel, zero to 60 in 5.3 seconds (Car & Driver) and a great navigation system. I bought for $30K, including destination charges. Why buy a G35, when every performance number is better and you can walk away with at least $5,000 tucked in your pocket? This is my fourth Subaru for a reason!

Most Complete Sports wagon for under 30K!

This wagon for the money truley gives me the performance, styling and features (AWD, Leather, Stereo, Storage, roof racks) that i was looking for. Previously i drove a german sports wagon which cost double the price, but by comparison was richer in int6erior comforts, but felt very heavy while driving. The Legacy gt wagon feels light and drives hard as you like.The steerinvg wheel has a gREAT sporty feel and the wagon feels perfectly balanced while driving. A real blast to drive, and you would never believe it was only a 4 cylinder engine producing all that power. The car pops 100 hp per liter which is up there with the best sports car companys in the world. Porsche pops 355 hp in 3.8 liters, legacy gt 250hp in 2.5liters! do the math on others. test drive one for yourself. My only Qualm is the braking lacks the stoppage that other sports cars deliver.
