2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 I Special Edition 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
There are several AWD vehicles on the market, but none come close to the value that the Legacy offers. Lexus, Volvo, Audi all cost thousands more, and Ford's AWD sedans are bland. This is my first Subaru, and there's no buyer's remorse here. Still, I wish the manual transmission were more available.
Styling (except for the rear bumper), AWD handling, long list of standard features, feeling of owning an upscale car without paying upscale prices.
The keyfob is unnecessarily large, the standard radio is poor (no depth to bass, poor antenna reception, distortion), smallish rear seat.
