#1 of 126 Does anyone own 06 Legacy LL Bean Sedan?

This is either a really bad car, a super high price or a best kept secret. Does anyone own one of these? Please share your experience. I'd be interested to know everything from speed and handling to MPG, off road driving and interior feel.

Outback Sedans make up something like 7% of Outback sales. Subaru shoppers like the practical wagon shape.
Sedans lovers tend to prefer the Legacy GT anyway.

This topic is NOT about LL Bean Outback, but a SEDAN.
Thanks for clearing up preferences, the percentage figure really helps!
I simply wanted to see if there are any brave ones that got one. (Supposedly it has more ground clearance than Explorer)

Sorry, I posted those images in the wrong thread by mistake.
As to the LL Bean sedan—it's an Outback, but in sedan format. It's got the same raised suspension as the Outback wagon. Mechanically it's identical to the LL Bean Outback wagon.

My wife purchased an Outback Limited sedan back in 2000 and loved it. She traded up to a 2004 Outback VDC sedan to get stability control, the H6 engine (the 06 has more horsepower), and a McIntosh sound system.
She wanted an Outback for the ground clearance (lots of snow here) and wanted a sedan, not a wagon. She loves it. As Bob said, its pretty much the same as the Outback wagon, except it has a trunk that locks.

Can you tell me what was the 04 model running for at the time $? Was it always in the 30-ies? I don't see very many people buying this particular 06 sedan, could not find one in stock at any of the local dealerships, and I'm suspecting the prices (just like VW Phaeton) is to blame and it may be phased out.

Pricing has been a MRSP of a few hundred dollars less than the equivalent wagon model. My local dealer keeps one or two around and trades with other dealers on color choices. Its no Phaeton. Think of sedan and wagon version of a Passat. Only with Subaru, most OB buyers pick the wagon.
