    2009 Subaru Legacy 2.5 i Special EditionReview

    Pleasant Surprise — I thought that going from a really fast car to one with 170 hp would be tough. It wasn't though due to the overall balance and driving dynamics of the Subaru. I love having the security of Subaru's symetrical all wheel drive and the five speed makes it fun to drive. MPG has been great so far, I'm averaging 30mpg with mixed driving. The quality of the interior is top notch and the lines of the car are seductive. My first Subaru but certainly not my last!

    Pros: Roominess, confort, driving dynamics, H/K sound

    Cons: Not the fastest car on the street

    It's A Beast — This car is a beast. it can handle anything thrown it's way. it has saved my life numerous times. closing in on 40k miles, this monster of a car is still standing strong. solid and healthy enough for 40k more. *UPDATE 8/2/2012*: 51k miles *UPDATE 11/28/2012*: 58k miles *UPDATE 1/26/13*: 61k miles

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: it has guts that most other cars wouldn't.

    Cons: it's not manual, and it's not a turbo
