2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 I 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I bought a Subaru because I like the performance & handling of a German car but wanted the reliability & value of a Japanese car. I got exactly that. The only problem in two years has been a dash rattle that the dealer fixed with a foam jam (I know, but it's not a luxury brand). It would be nice to get over 30 mpg's, but the trade-off is outstanding traction, performance and safety. Having survived a serious accident, safety is a major concern of mine. No regrets here. This is my first Subaru and I know it will be hard to talk myself into buying anything else again.
All-weather traction. Performance and handling. Design/styling; inside and out. Comfortable seats. Fold-down rear seat. Excellent visibility; no blind spots.
Faster response time for passing. More storage in the console area. Improved sound insulation.
