2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Hauls like a station wagon, runs like
a sports sedan. I can take four kids
to soccer, or leave BMWs in the dust.
Comfortable, quiet. Nice interior.
Lousy stereo. Lot of power, minimal
turbo lag, great grip wet or dry. Tires
are a weak spot, but easily replaced.
I went from a Miata to this, and the
Subie is so much fun to drive it was
an easy transition.
Turbo engine (pulls like crazy). Dual
auto climate control. Very nice leather
seats. Huge sunroof. Safety features
(front and side air bags, side
curtains). 4-stage seat heaters.
Auto up driver's window (only auto
down now). Better stereo. Two-touch
sunroof open (requires three
touches now). Only nits to pick, really.
