Goodbye Maxima
By rwray on


2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I thought my 2000 Maxima SE 5MT was
tops for the money. Move over Max, my
new Legacy 2.5GT Limited 5MT is a
whole lot of car for the price. A
blast to drive!!! 1st and 2nd gear
feels like you're riding a slingshot.
And I'm even babying it for the 1000
mile breakin period. Handles real
good, inspires confidence. Good
looking, "elegant simplicity". If you
have winters like we do in New
Hampshire, and you love to drive fast
on curvy roads, this is a no-brainer.
You gotta try one out.

Best Features

The turbo 4 cyl boxer engine: smooth and potent. Even economical if you drive that way.

Worst Features

With the GT/Limited trim, I can't think of anything to complain about. I would be nit picking.
