I traded in a BMW 3 series wagon that, compared to the Legacy GT, drives like a truck. My daughter has an Audi A4 and that also does not compare. This car is more fun than any car I have owned. It accelerates wonderfully and handles well. It is very nimble and agile. I don't mind running errands because the car is so fun. There are some niceties that the BMW did have - like memory seats and mirrors - that this car is missing, but well worth the trade off. Best with a manual transmission.
The driving itself. Nice leather interior, understated design.
The climate system is tricky. AC almost always goes on with Auto feature. I find it hard to get the climate system to do what I want. Also the famous Subaru seatbelt beeping - annoying! The gas mileage could be better given this a 4 cylinder.
