2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 I Limited 4dr Sedan AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
I have traded in my Accord Ex for the 2008 Legacy Limited with VDC. The Legacy is by far a much better vehicle than the Accord. The Accord is a good ride but it can't match the Legacy in handling and in acceleration. The steering feels very balance in the AWD Legacy; you don't have the torque steer kickback of a front wheel drive car. The gas mileage is about the same as the Accord, which is quite good. The 4 speed auto transmission works well with the 2.5 engine. I have no problem merging into the freeways and zipping aound town. The ride is very comfortable and controlled. I have owned many brands (MB, BMW, Acura, Honda, Jeep, Nissan) and the Legacy is the best car for the money.
The safety feature of AWD with VDC. The aux jack for MP3 player is a nice feature. The windshield wiper de-icer is a great idea.
Radio control on the steering wheel should be standard in the Limited model.
