What do people think
about Subaru Legacy ?
Probably the best all-around car for Western New York weather and roads. If I had only one car, this would be it. Being the GT model, with lower suspension and wider tires, it is a very nice handling summer car, and the permanent roof rack still allows camping, hauling, traveling, and bicycle carrying. Sun roof helps too. For winter, I put on Bridgestone...
