2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


At one month we are very pleased with car after taking it on a couple extended trips. The handling is better than I expected on windy roads-far, far better than the Camry and Accord. Comfort is good, but the climate control acts bizarre and we often end up controlling it manually. The car feels solid and substantial, more like a European than Japanese maker. Cruise control has some strange ticks-jerky when going downhill, full throttle when accelerating. If you want blazing speed, go for the GT, but the base engine is adequate for brisk highway merges. The sunroof is huge and a treat for back seat passengers. Disappointing economy-27mpg is best so far even with all highway driving.

Best Features

Quiet ride, large sunroof, confident handling, AWD wagon, value!

Worst Features

Refine climate control behavior. Satellite radio option. Traction control without getting top of the line Outback model.
