Great car...if you don't have long legs!
By gary1964 on


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


This is a wonderful vehicle.
Unfortunately, for a tall person with long
legs, it's very difficult to be comfortable
driving. After 1500 miles I am still struggling
to be comfortable. The non-telescoping
steering wheel is too far away for me. The
seat is very hard and short (I have to use a
pad under my butt). The angle of the gas
peddle is too high and there is little room left
over for the feet under the dash. The
headreast does not tilt forward. Sometimes
after driving 20 minutes, my right leg and
back are very uncomfortable. Didn't notice
this until after I bought it. I am 5'11" well

Power is smooth, and Sport mode comes in
handy when passing quickly.

Best Features

Style, stereo is excellent, sunroof, smooth power, quiet ride, good highway gas mileage, handles well, brakes well

Worst Features

Needs telescoping wheel, more comfortable seat bottom cushions all around. Need to open up room under the dash for feet / toe space. Need more generous storage compartments up front (glove box is deceiving... not as big as it looks). Make the cargo area washable vinyl.
