Total Q-Ship
"430 bhp, 450 ft. lbs. of torque! This is an outstanding performance car, with all the best parts. Spring rates and shocks are perfect for a sports sedan, and ultra high performance summer tires really grip the road."

It looks brand new! New dash, leather seats with perforated ultrasuede inserts, carpet is perfect, new plush floor mats.
Exterior

5.0

Beautiful satin white pearl paint. Front bumper cover shows some rock chips, and it's the original paint (so that can be forgiven). No door dings anywhere!

This is a 160+ mph sports sedan that can really haul. It has an all forged bottom end, with a ported performance cylinder head, larger turbo and intercooler. Dyno tuned to 430 bhp, with 450 ft. lbs. of torque. Revs to 7200 rpms. Stage III endurance clutch.
Family

5.0

Bigger than the Impreza based Subaru (WRX or STi), so you can put car seats in the back, or seat four adults comfortably. Suspension is perfect blend of control and compliance.
Cost

There aren't too many cars that will do sub 12 second quarter miles, top out at over 160 mph, and still get over 20 mpg every day. This is one of the cars that will do it all, with room for four on long drives.

Bad Turbo
"Do NOT buy a Subaru Legacy with a Turbo. I have had nothing but problems with my Turbo and Engine. I have replaced them both twice and will NEVER buy another one. Others have told me that the Turbo on the WRX are better but after having this one I will never buy another Subaru with a Turbo again. Even the mechanic mentioned that he has a lot of problems with These Legacy type Turbo Engines. "

Not bad but not great on gas; I imagine repairs will be expensive, though I don't expect it to need much.
