Our old '02 Forester had too many issues suddenly, so my wife and I decided to go find a new car for her. We settled on the Legacy and couldn't be more pleased. Extremely comfortable, fun to drive, excellent mileage (sometimes well into the 30s on the highway), and tons of room inside. The CVT transmission is surprisingly very nice given some of the reviews I have read.
There is a rattle that sounds like it is coming from the moonroof area. Need to have that checked. Fog lights should be standard on all weather package. Parking brake button is a little weird to use. iPod and Bluetooth connectivity almost as much as an aftermarket stereo with GPS built-in.
