Worth the wait.....

Vehicle

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

Review

Waited a year for this since I heard it was the 2004 car of the year in Japan. Always liked Subaru but didn't buy one because of the lack of power (and a WRX is too small for me). Does everything well. Steering feel and response is very similar to a BMX530i I drove last year. Smooth, but firm ride, very good handling, feels like a RWD car. Love the interior, very comfortable and classy. Traded in a 2002 V-6 Altima for this car and have not regretted it one bit. Subaru has totally outclassed Nissan. Amazing...

I've waited a year for this car since I heard it was the 2003/2004 car of the year in Japan. Always liked Subaru but didn't buy one because of the lack of power (and a WRX is too small for me). This car is a steal. Does everything well (while not great). I can't think of another car in this price range that does everything this car can do. Steering feel and response is very similar to a BMX530i I drove last year. Smooth, but firm ride, very good handling, feels like a RWD car. Love the interior, very comfortable and classy.

Review

I tested many many cars before buying the Subaru Legacy Limited wagon. Very pleased with the safety features, and the space. It is one of the best priced cars in this segment of the market.

This car is a blast to drive. Most fun short of a BMW! And in a Wagon. The only negatives I have are 1) fuel economy (what do you expect when going from 0-60 in 6 seconds), and I could use more upper back support.

This is my second gt limited sedan, and my second subaru. The first was a 2000model,had 81,000 trouble free miles, but it is totally in a different league, then the 2005 model i traded it in for. This is an awesome car,smooth power,quiet, and very upscale interior vs the 2000gt.

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

Review

This is a great car! I was set on buying an Acura TL & saw a commercial for this car as well as a billboard. I drove to the dealer, test drove the car, went back the next day & drove it for 2 hours & bought it the next day. The car handles as if it were on rails. Everyone comments on how smooth & quite the ride is. The trunk space is great. Trust me, drive this car and you will buy this car. The "sport" mode really makes a difference in the performance.

Impossible to find another car like this out there. For 30k get sports-car handling and acceleration, wagon- versatility, and Honda build quality.

Legacy Limited GT Wagon 05

2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

The perforated leather seats, dual climate control and large sunroof were far classier than other comparable models built by Subaru's competitors. The cornering and stopping capabilities of this model are astounding due to the lower positioning of the boxer style engine. The sportshift automatic transmission allows for manual shifts which makes driving incredibly fun. The turbo model has on demand power at almost all speeds above 15mph. Some competitors boast more power under the hood but the Legacy is geared lower which results in better accel.
