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

Review

My wife had a 2k GT wagon that we replaced w/this one. All the issues I had w/the 2k (plain interior, road noise, inability to get out of it's own way) were addressed by the 05. Dynamically, the car is easily equal to many more expensive cars (we had a brief affair w/a 2k S4 avant- the subie is nearly as nice and about 120x more reliable). The design is nice, the ride and noise are well-controlled, power is excellent. Really a stellar deal for the price.

Review

This car has very good acceleration & tight handling. The interior is comfortable and compares well in the $30k+ price category. The exterior has an uderstated yet aggressive profile. Overall VERY happy with our purchase. This is THE CAR to buy if you are looking for a high performance, good looking, safe, reliable, utility wagon.

Review

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. Traded in a 2002 V-6 Altima for this car and have not regretted it one bit. Subaru has totally outclassed Nissan. Amazing...

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.

Review

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.

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 Wagon 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.

Review

I live in the Dakotas and need AWD. We have a lot of 2 lane roads and I want enough under the hood to pass quickly. My other car I seriously looked at was the G35x but this clearly is a much better mix of power and comfort.

Review

It looks like a practical family station wagon. It hauls like one, too. But it's as much fun to drive as my Miata was: goes like stink, handles like a German sports sedan, plus tons of safety features and all wheel drive. Very nice interior, best styling Subaru has ever done, quiet, comfortable and a blast to drive. Great highway cruiser, nimble on twisting roads, doesn't even notice wet, slick roads.
