2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
This car is fun to drive. Have had quite a bit of trouble with little things. Had the check engine light come on in the first 1000 miles of driving. Well, if any of you have had this problem you know that the cruise control does not work. Not good for long trips. Fuel pump went bad. In the shop three times for cruise issues. Do a lot of travel and not having cruise stinks. Had to adjust drivers window due to high pitch noise. Would not buy these high priced cars again. Does not hold value very much like other cars.
Handling and smooth ride. The rumble of the little motor makes it sound bigger than what it is. The power of the little motor with the 5 speed manual tranny.
Subaru is known for reliability. Maybe I got the one out of ten that is a mechanical nightmare. Just need to fix a problem the first time and not 10 or 12 times later. Would not buy any Subaru again after I get rid of this one.
