2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Looked at a lot of cars, never owned a Subaru before. Checked out the Legacy and was impressed with price, features and looks, not to mention AWD. Have had the car 2000 miles now and I'm pretty satisfied. Average mileage says 24.3 on avg on the onboard computer, handles nice and smooth, nice storage for golf clubs, nice onboard computer and digital compass in rearview mirror; little short in leg room - emergency brake hits thigh and dead pedal is a little short in height (I wear size 11), floormat hook sticks up too far catches my shoe, a/c is weird - will blow ice cold/then not so cold/ice cold/not so cold in a cycle (dealer says this is normal!),

Best Features

Handling, looks, onboard computer, stereo thumps well (but no hookup for Mp3 player!), nice rear storage.

Worst Features

Fix a/c, auxiliary hookup for stereo, standard center arm rest extension, better cup holder (that won't get blocked by arm rest extension) a little taller dead pedal and larger seat pan for driver. My Maxima had a 3.0 at 225hp and got the same gas mileage.
