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


I just traded my 2005 Legacy GT sedan in which I had bought new in 05.
I didn't want to get rid of this car. I loved driving it.
SO much fun!
However, it was not without problems.
Within the time I had it there were many electrical problems.
The biggest one was a throttle sensor went.
This almost caused some serious accidents until they could figure out what was going on. The seat heaters went out. The power windows went out.
The radio display lights went out and also would lock up on me. The power steering fluid had leads and the CV boots cracked.
I traded it in for a 2012 Acura TSX wagon because I wanted to end our relationship on a high note before dumping more $$ into repairs.

Please bring it back Subaru, only improved!
