2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


My wife and I have owned this Scoobie for 4 years next month. While we love the car and truly love Subarus this car has had some annoying issues that the dealers can't seem to fix. Our car has been in three times for an annoying rattle in the dash. It apparently disappears when the service techs look at it (rolling eyes). The front brakes squeal when the ambient temperature is above 60 outside. I've replaced everything and they still squeak. Oh, the clutch went out at 38000. My wife and I know how to drive stick well and do not abuse the car. But this one let go at a very young age. Kudos to Subaru though for not stiffing us with the whole $1100 bill.

Best Features

Love that turbo. Exterior design looks really sharp!!

Worst Features

Seat memory would be nice. Needs a six-speed gear box. Rpm too high in fifth gear. Should have waited and got an '06 spec "b". Note to S.O.A.: Fix the design flaw in the dash causing this rattle problem.
