Well seeing we've been on the subject of Subaru's lately.....
Ok, so my ex currently drives a 2000 Nissan Altima. I drove it last week and told her it was absolutely the worst car I have EVER driven in my life. The steering was by far the worse part, amongst 100 other things.
So anyways, she just got a new job....a really good one, but its about 1 hour each way, mostly highway. She wants something new and girly. I told her she should think about having a 4wd or awd....seeing we are in the NE and shes a girl....lol.
She likes Subaru's and I went with her to test drive a legacy, and today she went and test drove one again. I'm pretty sure that's what she wants. She told me she was looking at the turbo ones and was thinking about it.
I know she wants an automatic without any question.....she does not want to learn to drive stick, we tried that long ago.
I pulled this up on Subaru's site and made my own conclusions.
Looks like the basic difference is;
-$21k to $28k
-170 to 240 hp
-20/27 mpg to 18/24
I would say the 2.5GT Limited is her best bet. For an extra $7k, that's 70hp, and a small drop in mpg performance. And you get a leather interior, and all around a couple better options.
What do you guys think? Anyone have a legacy? Anything else you'd recommend?
