2009 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
My wife and I love our Subaru Limited. We have had it for 3 months and no buyers remorse here. Handling - no comparison with other models in its class. Steering and overall comfort is wonderful. Test drove Altima, Accord and Sonata. Though the others each had their perks and overall better gas mileage, the AWD and wonderful drive sold it for us. 3-4 MPG less was not an issue with so many other nice features. The vehicle turns on a dime and handles great in the rain. I can't wait to see how it handles under winter conditions. The HK sound system is great too but was not a reason to buy. The car sold itself for us.
Road Handling, steering, interior design, body styling, HK stereo system and limited edition accessories.
5 or 6-speed auto transmission choices for better mileage (2010 model has improved on both of these); Darker Leather color choices; better driver armrest; HK CD player features - add random play to skip to different songs on different CDs. Right now it will only play random on 1 CD at a time.
