2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

I've owned this car for a bit over a year now. Here's the short-attention-span review. - Very good engine performance. - Good handling, although the rear suspension could be firmer. - Good brake feel and feedback, easy to modulate. - Great to have a sport wagon with a manual transmission. - Good, but not great seats. At least they're cloth! (I hate hot/cold, sticky/slippery leather seats). - Awful climate control. With the AC on, it doesn't give you air at one temperature, but pulses alternating HOT and COLD air. - Bad driving position. Lack of a telescoping steering wheel really hurts. - Electronic throttle not ready for prime-time. - 26 mpg hwy, not so hot.

Favorite Features

Engine performance.

Suggested Improvements

A telescoping steering wheel. I cannot find a comfortable driving position. A climate control system that doesn't pulse alternate blasts of hot and freezing air. Throttle control that doesn't surge. Better gas mileage. A 6-speed transmission. Auxiliary inputs for the audio system.
