Ok car overall but amazing in the snow.

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


If you are some one who needs a solid commuter car and deals with a lot of bad weather look no further. The car's boxer engine does a great job when you pass someone on the highway. What really is a disappointment is the low end torque, it is non existent. If you are like me and need that torque to get up to speed quickly on the highway with short on ramps then this is not the car for you. Even in a manual it struggles. Passing traffic amazing but no torque. Gas mileage is excellent and the all wheel drive can handle almost anything. Headlights went out twice but dealer was great and replaced. What I do not get is why the backseat does not fold down. Major problem with kids.

Best Features

All-wheel drive, sharp looks, excellent handling and gas mileage.

Worst Features

More torque and a backseat that folds down!
