Lovin' our new Subaru
By Matt on


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


I'm really pleased overall with the car. I love the smoothness of the ride, how well it handles, accelerates and brakes. The exterior design is wonderful and the interior is well laid out. Some of the interior panel fit is inconsistent but there are no rattles, squeaks or problems. I also had a great dealer experience and look forward to seeing them just for the routine maintenance.

Best Features

We love the trip computer functions and the displays are great. I'm also a huge fan of the manual transmission on the NON-turbo engine (it's truly a great combination) with the limited package of options (only offered on 2005 models now).

Worst Features

Offer two interior choices again (not just the lame taupe), bring back the manual transmission to the 2.5i and GT wagon; as gas prices climb you just might sell more of them. Also I realize that All-Wheel Drive improves safety and handling but offer Traction/Stability Control for emergency situations.
