I bought my sedan in March of 2006 with about 154K miles on it. The previous owner had taken pretty nice care of the car. I had been looking for a car for a ... Show morevery long time (about a year). I test drove a few Integras (94 ) some Jettas & GTI's (94 ), a few older Audi Quattros, and a Passat wagon, but none of them compared to the drive of the Legacy. I was living in Bend, Oregon @ the time, and was already driving a '95 Legacy wagon 4EAT AWD, courtesy of my generous parents. I loved the all wheel traction of the wagon, but it always felt kind of sluggish and Grandma status being an automatic wagon. Needless to say I'm very content with my sedan, I love the handling, the styling, the ride, the noise of the boxer engine, the fact I can fit four full size adults. The Subaru is really a very complete package. This one is a 1995 "L" Ruby Mica in color with the 2.2L, AWD, and no ABS. The current mods I have installed on the car are:
1.'05 Black WRX front seats, '99 GT Limited black leather rear seats w/ center armrest. Black leather door card inserts3. '98-'99 OEM Two-piece headlights
4. Cusco shift bushing (huge improvement in feel)
5. Waiting for paint: Legacy GT side-skirts, GT spoiler, GT rear bumper lip, JDM power folding mirrors, and will buy & install a set of OE JDM foglights @ the same time along with JDM tails sidemarkers.

This was my first car. It was purchased three months after I turned sixteen, in June of 2001. At the time, I thought this was a really sweet car. It was sold... Show more with just over 100K miles. The paint was immaculate, very clean white. It had burgandy leather interior that was also in excellent shape. These Mi16's came fully apointed from the factory, with heated power seats, moonroof, even a remote keyless entry.
This is probably the best handling front wheel drive I car I have ever driven. It has a curb weight of around 2700lbs. and with the sixteen valve, 150HP engine, it moved nicely. Great steering feel. I miss that car a lot. I had to sell it at the time due to insufficient funds to keep it running. While these 405's are an excellent drive, they are quite expensive to keep running. Parts and labor are top dollar for this French beauty. Even in perfect tune, I never acheived more than around 23mpg on average using premium, 92 octane. In one year, we had repair bills of over $4,000. These are an ageing classic, I love it, but found it too expensive for my taste. "One of the best drives you'll ever experience."
