Never had any problems with this car
By Logan C on 06/13/09 14:30 PM (PDT)

2005 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.5 GT AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Never had any problems with this car even with driving it across the country a few times. This being my second Subaru and its performance in the snow and winter conditions is everything I've expected.

A great car for the money

Review

I bought my LGT brand new almost 3 years ago, and I still think this car is one of the best kept secrets. I've had so many complements on its looks, and everyone is surprised when they hear it's a Subaru. The AWD gives you more confidence on the road, even though the stock allseason tires aren't the best. The black interior is nice, and the cloth seats have held up well for 40000 miles. It has great acceleration, even when it was stock, but there was noticeable turbo lag. The manual shifting on the auto is nice, but there is hesitation. Gas mileage could be better but you pay to play. Warranty repairs: driver seat heating elements coming through foam twice, O2 sensor, dash rattle (not fixed

Pros: All in all this is a good car with exceptional handing abilities. It is a fine car and holds the road well. The turbo engine is super when it kicks in. The car is quiet and clean. Cons: Expensive to maintain especially the tires. Turbo burns premium unleaded. Somewhat narrow (hip room) front seating. Typical turbo lag. Fuel economy could be better for a car this size.

I love my Subaru Legacy GT. I've had it a little over a year and it's fun to drive handles like a dream' 0-60 5.7 seconds and it's not too bad on gas.

I like everything about this car except for the daylight running lights and the way they are connected to the emergency brake. I have the GT with manual tranny (the weight is close to 200lb less than the limited GT) and the performance is fantastic. Gas ranges from 21 mpg for hard driving to about 30 mpg on trips.

13000 miles and no problems

2005 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.5 GT AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

I had a 2000 Audi A6 Biturbo and then upgraded to a 2003 Allroad, before I finally got smart and got the Subaru GT. It is just as quick as the Audi's, with more road nose, while the interior materials and finishes are 80% of the Audi's. The Subaru does not handle nearly as well as the Audi, but there are no mystery 45 MPH wobble, don't have to have the brakes replaced every 5,000 miles, and no electrical problems. (all of which plagued both my Audi’s) As a consumer I would say that Subaru took the A4 – A6 and copied as much as they could to make an inexpensive version that is much more reliable. All in all the Subaru GT has been a great choice for my family, but I do miss the A6 Biturbo

Value for Money

Review

Excellent performance. Great cornering, very stable on the road. Capable of very rapid changes in speed. Only reservations -- manual seat controls and seat structure. On a trip in excess of two hours the seats have poor to no vertical movement control. As the seats are low it is difficult to be comfortable. Worse the passenger seat base will not go back far enough to accommodate long legs. In the driver's seat, I find the left foot rest to be too high in relation to the gas pedal for long ride comfort. Passenger seat base is lower to floor than driver's seat base which affects rear passenger comfort (cannot with comfort put feet under front seat).

EXACTLY What I Wanted...

2005 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.5 GT AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

The best thing about this car is its performance. Two hundred and fifty foot- pounds of torque accelerate the car very easily. And it's at a relatively low 3600 RPM. At 55 mph in fourth gear, and 70 mph in fifth gear, you are right at 3000 rpm; it is just begging you to hammer the throttle. So you are always on the lookout for a Maxima or G35. The brakes are smooth and precise. But best of all is the cornering power. Turn in just under the front tires limit and you get very mild understeer. Squeeze the throttle and feel the rear tires' slip angles increase. Start unwinding the steering wheel as you pass the apex and straighten it as you pass the trackout point under full song. AWESOME BALANCE!

This car is just awesome! My friend has a WRX, and the Legacy GT is the WRX, but with style. Has many luxury features for far less money than you see on other cars like Acura, BMW, Audi. I'm still young, so insurance is a big thing; well I'm sorry, but a 4 banger with a turbo putting' out 250 HP... thats a sports car! But it's not considered one, and because ALL Legacy's have a 5 star crash rating, insurance companys love that and insurance prices are very good. Different story if you get yourself a Mustang or 350Z.
