AWD handling. Engine was a tad underpowered, but was responsive. Not a fan of the shiftable auto transmission, which was slow to respond. see full Subaru Legacy review

2006 Subaru Legacy Powertrain: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2006 4dr Wagon 175-horsepower 2.5L H4
4-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Ye olde 4 speed transmission is slow to react and has a hard time choosing the right gear. Shifts are often abrubt and unexpected. Engine runs out of steam at around 35mph. see full Subaru Legacy review
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 250hp 2.5L H4
5-speed manual AWD
The shifter was notchy (possibly because it was a new car) and the gearing was such that the car was loud on the highway. see full Subaru Legacy review
2005 4dr Sedan 168-horsepower 2.5L H4
4-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Excellent engine and automatic transmission. I think better calibration of the automatics trans would result better sudden acceleration and overall driving experience. see full Subaru Legacy review
