What's the used Subaru Legacy saloon like?

Mainly, the Legacy is quick and quiet. Both of the car's engines perform well, and sound throaty when you rev them, but settle to a whisper when you back off the throttle. However, you will suffer some noise from the top of the windscreen and some road noise.

It's a good car to drive, too. The 4WD Legacy hangs on well through bends, and keeps body lean well in check. Its softly sprung suspension also allows it to smother all manner of bumps well. The only concern is that the over-light steering, while precise enough, lacks a meaty feel.
