2009 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I just got my Legacy a month ago and I could not be happier. We broke it in on a 3,000 mile trip to SC. It cruised through rain that had people pulling over because they could not see. We averaged 70 mph with the A/C on and the mileage was 31! Great safety with the 6 airbags and traction control. I have been told it had a 5 star rating. Great HK stereo, very quick with the 5 speed. Steering is precise and the roadholding is fantastic. I had two Audis and I like this more. Plus, if it did have a maintenance problem (which I don't think it will) it would be cheap to fix. A lot of car for 19K.
I really like 99% of it!
I know it's nitpicky, but the Yokohama Advans are a summer tire. They have a great grip, but a very low treadwear rating. With AWD I don't need such an expensive tire, all seasons would be just fine. Also, the headlights do have a sharp cutoff, I would gladly pay more for HID's.
