Notes: A relatively dependable vehicle that handles well in bad weather, but increasing concerns about turbo failure in the GT probably means you should look elsewhere if you want a car with a little pep in its step.

2005 Subaru Legacy Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 072005

Legacy 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,308 miles


Right front wheel broke. Cast wheel. Found tire and rim 30 feet ahead of vehicle after crash due to loss of control. Vehicle spun, entered culvert facing opposite direction and impacted tree causing it to roll twice. Vehicle totaled. Geice insurance has possession of vehicle but will leave intact for another 30 days. Have pictures, broken rim and part of spoke. We've purchased a Subaru forrester with Subaru giving us a customer loyalty rebate. There is little doubt in our minds that this casting was defective and may cause many more serious accidents with death or injury. We we're frankly lucky. Pictures and comments can be viewed at
