2005 Subaru Outback 3.0 R AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I have owned Hondas, Toyotas, and several other foreign and domestic cars. The Subaru is by far the most dependable, best handling and Superior in bad weather to any car I have driven. I have a hard time believing some of the negative reviews I've read on the Internet. Either some people have never driven in the rain or a snow storm or they work for another car company. Do yourself a favor and just ask anyone who owns a Subaru what they think and I'm sure you'll get a very positive reply.
The sure footed feeling of all wheel drive makes you want to travel in the worst kind of weather!
More rear passenger leg room. However if you're like me I never travel long distances with more than one passenger, so it's not a big deal to me.
