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

Review

Love the lines and the style of the car, bought mine used with 70,000 miles on it. First few hours i owned it the transmission sensors failed... fine cars have issues sometimes. later on started to notice electrical issues with the lighting dimming on its own or the radio controls not working when you hit the buttons. in the past year , i have replaced the turbo, the ac condensor because it seized and shredded all the belts and tore through the electrical, the transmission had to be rebuilt, and now the wheel bearings are going.... I must have gotten a lemon.... Love the car other than these issues. about to trade it in. Stay away from the turbo Automatics they have major issues!!!

Best Features

the clean lines of the car, the 250 hp and trq throwing you back in your seat when you gun the engine, and the beautiful black leather interior with silver accents make you feel like your driving a $50,000 dollar car.

Worst Features

A fold down back seat would be nice, get rid of the useless steering wheel shifters and add radio controls. ad some leg room to the rear seat, and a sportier sounding exhaust would be nice improvments
