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


We bought this car used in 2008.
I negotiated the full warranty for a new car, 6 yrs and 100,000 miles, it expired in in october 2010 and soon after our transmission fluid and oil covers both leaked.
Cost $500 to fix.
It has been solid, but not what we expected.
It is our first subaru and we are hoping to get 150K miles out of it.
We bought with 45K and now have 75K.
A few other nuiances are breaking down too but nothing major.
I hope this last repair shop visit will last.

Best Features

Cool interior, great miles per gallon. drives well

Worst Features

more legroom in the back seat, standard roof rack.
