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


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.

Best Features

Plain but classy interior and exterior. Good build quality. Subaru reliability.

Worst Features

Better stereo. Smoother shifter I have the short throw shifter. Every manufacturer should take apart the shifter in my wife's RSX Type S and learn how to make a shifter that feels like its on ball bearings.
