2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
My wife had a 2k GT wagon that we replaced w/this one. All the issues I had w/the 2k (plain interior, road noise, inability to get out of it's own way) were addressed by the 05. Dynamically, the car is easily equal to many more expensive cars (we had a brief affair w/a 2k S4 avant- the subie is nearly as nice and about 120x more reliable). The design is nice, the ride and noise are well-controlled, power is excellent. Really a stellar deal for the price.
Favorite Features
Excellent drivetrain, enormous sunroof, swanky new looks, much-improved interior, overall improvement in quality. Just off-beat enough to make people wonder what just blasted by them on 2 lane roads as they blunder along at 10 mph under the limit yammering on their cell phone.
Suggested Improvements
Cloth interior option, STi version (surely in the works) grippier seats (perhaps a cloth option for the LTD?) and I am not sure the climate control system is an improvement over the good old-fashioned HVAC controls. The stock bridgeston RE92's are nearly criminal. Better elbow support for trips.
