A lot of car for the money!

Vehicle2009 Subaru Outback 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI live in Colorado where snow is an issue, so I needed a car with AWD. This car has excellent build quality. I previously owned a 3-series BMW and this car is comparable in many ways. The transmission is as good as the BMW, as is the ride quality. Though nothing handles like a BMW IMO, this comes close. You won't win many drag races with the 2.5, but it is adequate and fun. If I hadn't gotten so many tickets in college and therefore cost so much to insure, I would've gotten the turbo, I think. Overall this is a lot of car for the money. The seats are softer than my BMW, but not as soft as the Volvo I test drove. I prefer softer seats when given the choice.
Best Features5-Star crash test rating, handling, smooth transmission, AWD, fun-to-drive factor, handsome interior, good-looking exterior, Harmon-Kardon stereo.
Worst FeaturesSofter seats would be nice for long trips (though the seats aren't bad), 30 more HP.
