2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I have had the Subaru GT Ltd for about 9 months. I absolutely love this car, it fits me like a glove and drives like no other car I have ever had. It is classic, conservative, but with an attitude that I can turn on with a little pressure on the gas. I blow the doors off the hot little Hondas and German cars. The handling is tight and I love cruising around in it. However, things came crashing down after taking it thru a car wash. The ECU, bulkhead wire harness, integrated unit have been replaced and who knows what else is needed, certainly not the dealers or the Subaru expert knows why it will not start, or not run for more than 30 min. It has been in the shop for the past 9 weeks.
Turbo charged 4 cyl boxer, love the growl and the power. Handling is tight and responsive with the right tires (no the stock tires). Leather interior is very rich and the sound system is supurb. Manual 5 speed transmission is a must for the full driving experience.
Something has got to be wrong with the fuel/electrical system if when the car stalls in the car wash (nothing unusual was done - like spraying under the hood) and not starting. The diagnostics for trouble shooting leave much to be desired. 9 weeks in the shop is not good for a car this costly.
