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


Just got our 2005 GT Ltd. Wagon 10 days
ago. I was blown away during the test
drive. The engine just pulls and pulls
and pulls. Besides the fantastic engine,
the interior was the deal clincher for
me. I always liked Subarus in the past,
but the interiors have never done
anything for me before. In the 2005
model, I have to say that Subaru did a
fantastic job in refining everything. So
far, the car feels solidly built. Doors
close with a thud. No signs of rattling
anywhere. Handling is great, but the
ride suffers a little. It's very much a
sports car ride. Lack of navigation
option bugged me, because they have it
in Japan and in Europe. Not a deal
breaker, but it would've been nice.

Best Features

Fantastic turbo engine. Great gas mileage compared to an SUV. Handling is great. Interior is a pleasure to be in. Awesome electro-luminescent gauges, very Lexus-like.

Worst Features

Poor gas mileage compared to a sedan. Navigation option. Armrest and vents in the rear. Tire pressure monitors. Aux-in for the radio.
