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


I've waited a year for this car since I heard it was the 2003/2004 car of the year in Japan. Always liked Subaru but didn't buy one because of the lack of power (and a WRX is too small for me). This car is a steal. Does everything well (while not great). I can't think of another car in this price range that does everything this car can do. Steering feel and response is very similar to a BMX530i I drove last year. Smooth, but firm ride, very good handling, feels like a RWD car. Love the interior, very comfortable and classy. Traded in a 2002 V-6 Altima for this car and have not regretted it one bit. Subaru has totally outclassed Nissan. Amazing...

Best Features

Engine, sportshift, moonroof, turn signals in the rearview mirrors, rims (beautiful), love the projector beam headlights AND foglights. And most importantly, the factory installed subwoofer right under the driver's seat. Get it, it will change your mind about the stereo.

Worst Features

Auto up on drivers side window, auto up/down on passengers side. Should steal an idea from Nissan, keyless remote can open the front windows, auxilary power after the key is turned off, and what's with the moonroof stopping half way when you close it?
