On July 27th, I purchased this 2005 Subaru Legacy GT.
I think the Legacy GT is the perfect all around vehicle. I have owned lots of cars (S2000, Rx8) and well I think it was time to move to a more practice car for my family.
Hopefully this one will be a winter trooper and take us snowboarding.

Selling my beloved 2005 Subaru Legacy GT Wagon Ltd. 5-speed. I've owned it from new and it has been my daily driver. Always fully stock, never modded. Never in an accident. No smokers, no pets. Everything works.
This is the car we bought when we had our first (and as it turns out only) child, and it has been a great car to be both practical and fun. Only reason for selling is we've owned it a decade and it's time to get something new (the Volvo V60 is already in the stable).
Mechanically, the car is sound. No turbo failure, no throwout bearing failure. Both rear bearings replaced under warranty. Clutch replaced over a year ago. New rear brakes this spring. Newer Conti DWS tires with lots of life left. I have most records and can detail further repairs put in recently (wife didn't realize for a couple of years that I was giving her the oil change records to file, not to throw out -- that said, it never went more than 5k without an oil change).
Cosmetically, I would call it good to very good. Paint is glossy and cleans up nicely, but has scratches and chips consistent with its age and use. No major dents, but lots of door dings (apparently nobody in NoVa can open a door in a parking lot without hitting the neighboring car) so it could use some PDR love. One flaw warrants mention: an improperly mounted rear bike rack cracked the plastic panel just below the rear hatch glass; this happened seven years ago and has never caused trouble (see picture). One rear door handle was recently replaced after breaking in an ice storm; it's unpainted black, but very hard to see against the dark blue. All wheels are curbed, but they pass the ten-foot test.
Interior is in very good shape, with appropriate wear for its age and use. Stereo, CD changer, heated seats, lights -- everything works. Leather has no tears; dashboard has no cracks. Grey headliner has mild stain from leaving the sunroof open in a storm once. The backs of the seats are scuffed from my daughter and her friends kicking the plastic seatbacks, and the rear cupholders were long ago kicked to pieces. All-season floor mats.
The car comes with factory crossbars (not pictured), a set of unused carpeted floor mats, and a Jabra bluetooth in-car speakerphone. Aftermarket alloy wheels with Continental Extreme Winter tires (205/50-17) near the end of their useful life are also available.
Prefer local sale. Asking $9,000 or best reasonable offer.
