Review of the 2005 Subaru Legacy

  • A tight chassis, a turbocharged engine and a slick cockpit have transformed the all-wheel-drive Legacy into a serious driver's car. Whether you're an enthusiast in need of four doors or a safety-conscious parent in need of some fun, this one is worth a try.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Don't have to pay extra for all-wheel drive, generous standard equipment list, top-notch build and materials quality, excellent power in GT models, great highway ride, sharp handling.

  • Cons

    Stability control not available, smaller backseat than most competitors.

  • What's New for 2005

    An all-new and vastly improved Legacy is introduced in sedan and wagon body styles. Topping the list of upgrades are a 250-horsepower turbocharged engine, a stylish new interior and a full menu of airbags.

Vehicle: 2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

My van got about 26 mpg and i fueled up every two weeks to top off a 20 gal tank. This car has seems to be getting better mileage. I agree with the others comments about the great ride and design so I will not repeat them. I just wish I bought this car instead of my Venture Van or Honda Accord. Sold my van becuase the engine gasket started leaking oil at about 50k mi. This car has more miles on it and the engine is clean.




Wow! what a car!

I live in Northern NY, snow covered curvy, mountainous roads. I love the way the car handles and brakes.
