Station wagon of your dreams
By DASattler on


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


Hauls like a station wagon, runs like
a sports sedan. I can take four kids
to soccer, or leave BMWs in the dust.
Comfortable, quiet. Nice interior.
Lousy stereo. Lot of power, minimal
turbo lag, great grip wet or dry. Tires
are a weak spot, but easily replaced.
I went from a Miata to this, and the
Subie is so much fun to drive it was
an easy transition.

Best Features

Turbo engine (pulls like crazy). Dual auto climate control. Very nice leather seats. Huge sunroof. Safety features (front and side air bags, side curtains). 4-stage seat heaters.

Worst Features

Auto up driver's window (only auto down now). Better stereo. Two-touch sunroof open (requires three touches now). Only nits to pick, really.
