Amazing Car

Review

Picked up my Legacy GT wagon last week. Looked at a lot of wagons, Passat, Audi A4, Mazda 6. Volvo v50. Fodge Magnum. Amazed at the way Subaru pulled this car together. Staying with the GT not the limited and manual, purchased the car for 26,300. No other wagon near this price range had the performance of the GT. Passat had nice interior but was over 31,000 with 4-wheel drive. Same with the Audi and Volvo. The Magnum looked better but interior did not have same quality and with the Hemi was also over 31K. Subaru was a better handler although Mazda 6 was close and the turbo was quicker than all. Nicely done exterior and interior, car is quiet but really comes alive on a twisty road.

Great car...if you don't have long legs!

Review

This is a wonderful vehicle. Unfortunately, for a tall person with long legs, it's very difficult to be comfortable driving. After 1500 miles I am still struggling to be comfortable. The non-telescoping steering wheel is too far away for me. The seat is very hard and short (I have to use a pad under my butt). The angle of the gas peddle is too high and there is little room left over for the feet under the dash. The headreast does not tilt forward. Sometimes after driving 20 minutes, my right leg and back are very uncomfortable. Didn't notice this until after I bought it. I am 5'11" well proportioned. Power is smooth, and Sport mode comes in handy when passing quickly.

Review

Had the GT Wagon M for 1 month now...WOW! Looked at the Mazda6, Audi/Volkswagen Wagons and there is no comparison. The Subaru came in at 27K. Power is abundant through all 5 gears. 5.8 sec 0-60 times are no joke out of this rocket. Don't listen to any of the hype of the turbo lag. The GT makes 13.5lbs of boost and it's quite available. Shifts are a bit long and I think I'm going for the short throw shifter upgrade in time. Ride quality is superb with minimal body roll. There is no dive whatsoever under heavy breaking. The 2 kids(both under 2) ride in a cacoon of safety features.

Great Car Value

2005 Subaru Legacy Wagon 2.5i AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Currently have 1300 miles including a 800 mile round trip to mountains. Very well balanced automobile. Could use about 20 more HP in base form for mountain driving with the automatic. Avg fuel economy right near EPA estimate of 30 MPG on regular fuel. Quiet/smooth highway ride - AWD operation is not perceptible. Great handling for a wagon. Very versatile storage options. Seating/pedal position takes a little getting used to - maybe just me. Arm rest should be standard instead of a $130 accessory. Factory rack cross-bars can be noisy at speed. I removed them until needed. No mechanical or other problems yet.

What more can I say? They've taken a vehicle I already liked very much and improved upon it.

Review

New father who wanted a vehicle with room and safety but still fun to drive. Shopped Mazda 6 and Acura TSX. Turbo engine offers great power and torque with little to no turbo lag. Live in Minnesota so all wheel drive was great feature. Couldn't be happier with purchase.

Genuine Audi alternative

Review

The perfect alternative for the rest of us who can't afford an Audi S4 Avant. Excellent handling, tons of power, a real pleasure to drive. My auto does not seem to suffer from the problems mentioned in the review. You can just pick the mode for your mood. Laid back = normal auto, pressing on=sport mode auto, hard driving = full manual mode. I drove a stick as well, and I will admit turbo lag seems worse in the auto for some reason.

05 Subaru Ltd Wagon - Silver

Review

It's our 2nd Subaru - the `94 is still running fine. The `05 5-speed (no turbo) is really quick - I can only image what the turbo does to the pick up! Our only compliant is the dealer-installed alarm system - it sets itself way too quickly!

Sportscar in a wagon

Review

I traded in a front-wheel-drive coupe for this. It's actually sportier and faster, though it looks like a family wagon. It's so much more practical, but it is luxurious and fun to drive. If you want a WRX STi but don't want to look like a teenage boy racer, take a look at the Legacy GT.
