New Subbie owner from CO
First time Subaru owner...just picked up a slightly used 2012 Legacy 2.5 Limited! I'm coming from a Ford F150 and wanted something a bit more economical, but still had plenty of room for our family on road trips! After lots of research, I found the Subarus to be the best bang for my buck! What a pleasant surprise, the car drives great and feels like its glued to the ground. I'm taking it tomorrow on a ski trip, so this will be a real test of how good this car will be to us going up mountains and in some snow! Look forward to learning more about my new all wheel drive beauty from all of you!

Thank you all for the welcome...just finished a 450 mile trek to the Colorado Ski Country! I was pleasantly surprised at how well this magnificent machine functioned. Fun to drive up and down the mountains with many fun, twisty roads. With 4 passengers and a trunk full of ski gear, we got a combined 32 MPGs! I'm starting to forget about my F150!

Nice! There will be a few times that you'll wish you had your old F150 ... very few overall however. Better gas mileage, fun driving, AWD, greater reliability, and having a configurable, enclosed environment will make your day-to-day driving a joy.
