Hot Sport Wagon
By Subywagonguy on
Vehicle
2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
The GT Limited accelerates like a hot sports sedan and handles reasonably well. The front seats are very comfortable and there's plenty of room in the back seat. Both rear seat legroom and cargo space is much better than our '99 Audi A4. The stock Bridgestone RE-92 all-season tires are a weak point. Too much initial understeer and poor on-center response. Replaced them with a set of Goodyear F-1 GS-D3's which are much better. Factory optional STI shifter is a "must-get." Throws are MUCH shorter and feel is MUCH better in all 5 forward gears, but it's a lot harder to get into reverse with the fast shifter. Shocks could be a little firmer-- too much float at high speeds.
Favorite Features
Turbo motor. The factory rated 250HP seems very conservative. This is a strong and reasonably efficient motor (23.4 MPG average). STI shifter (forward gears only). Reverse needs improvement!
Suggested Improvements
Improve stock shift linkage. Firmer or adjustable shocks. Dry weather tire option. Factory installed boost gauge option. I installed a Autometer Phantom (-30 in./+15psi) and it works great. Rear compartment 12v outlet (like the Outback). There's a space for one but it's not there.
