2000 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan AWD

Review

With a 5speed and taut handling it is very fun to drive. Fuel economy is decent considering ALL FOUR WHEELS are being driven ALL THE TIME. This is what pushes Subarus to the head of the pack in Alaska, and accounts for their well-deserved ubiquity. Standard ABS (unlike Honda and Toyota), another Alaskan-friendly feature that dramatically improves stopping performance on ice. Typically unassailable Japanese reliabiliy round out the package. AWD costs $10K more from VW/Audi, plus their reliability is the pits and you have to let the tranny shift for you (on the Passat 4motion)! I think not!

Best Features

Traction, classic unpretentious looks, reliability, superlative crash test scores, standard ABS, available manual transmission.

Worst Features

I have only one complaint with the sedan: the entire back seat should fold down, instead of just one middle "pass-through" section. Having the armrest is nice, but it limits your cargo capacity compared to the competition. Abviously this flaw is not present in the Legacy wagon.
