2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Bought my 05 Legacy GT limited about 5 months ago. I have owned/driven many different make/model cars including Subaru's. This one is a great improvement in terms of looks / performance / amenities compared to older versions. Subaru has been very smart to replace Volvo and Saab, and also sell cars right under the noses of Toyota/Honda/Nissan (Sad, the other 3 brands are suffering from declining quality. I wish made in the U.S. meant the same thing it did 30 years ago. My gripes: As new, it is overpriced. Still, reliability/build quality is below other Japanese cars. Cutting corners in interior / mechanical / material quality is stupid. People are not dumb.

Favorite Features

power/performance/comfort convenience/safety options stereo system looks interior/trunk space cold weather amenities (there are many) headlight illumination inexpensive parts/maintenance

Suggested Improvements

use better parts and options brakes (feeling and stopping distance. my 97 camry ce v6 stopped on a dime) occasional rattles coming from the dashboard road noise/insulation
