2005 Subaru Legacy 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!

Favorite Features

Cornering ability. Power brakes. Excellent interior design, good pedal layout, good shifter positioning. Easy to heel and toe. This IS A LOT OF CAR for the money.

Suggested Improvements

245/40R17 tire with 17 x 8 wheel package.
