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


Just purchased several days ago so here are my first impressions. It has a surprising amount of power for a four cylinder. The manual transmission feels easier to shift than the Impreza. The seats are very adjustable and comfortable. The stereo is pretty good for a factory unit with no upgrades. Mileage so far has been surprisingly good. The car is very smooth and handles great. Quiet ride even at highway speeds. The sound of the engine takes a little getting used to, but it grows on you. The trunk is pretty large and has a pass through for narrow objects. The car features a full assortment of airbags. In all, this is a great car with a lot of nice features for a reasonable price.

Best Features

All wheel drive makes for great handling and should be great in bad weather. Surprisingly fun to drive. Great mileage for AWD. Trip computer is neat, we'll see how accurate it is. Sporty exterior especially with spoiler. Alloy wheels are nice on entry model. The dash looks very classy at night.

Worst Features

Hate the plastic steering wheel and shifter. They will be replaced. Windows are slow to go up and down. Floor mats seem a little cheap. The steering could also be a little quicker in the base model.
