wow harsh guys, i guess that's what i get for abandoning the subaru ship.
I usually keep my cars for 5 years if i can but the legacy already had 70k miles on it and i was getting too bored with it, plus the 6 speed manual wasn't that good and really sucked the fun out of having a stick shift.
My girlfriend has a 2002 nissan frontier with 170k miles on it that doesn't have rust from living in wv/pa. Hopefully the rogue will be good. I didn't really need the awd from the legacy so i'm sure the nissan awd will be good enough for my needs.
