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


Review

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.


Best Features

Interior and exterior design. The turbo is a plus. I don't have a lead foot so I am getting decent mpg.


Worst Features

Better transmission. The 250HP seems to be a little too much. The current transmission is decent. Somewhat smooth. Then again it could be the turbo kicking.

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


Review

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


Best Features

Definately the heated seats! :)


Worst Features

Do something with the headlights to clean them. One snow, salt covered day and it's really hard to see at night due to dirty headlights.
