The outgoing Outback does have a longer cargo floor, though. That's the only thing my wife misses at times.
Overall she's much happier with the 09 Forester.

I appreciate the feedback. As I say, I suspect we'll end up with the Forester, which with two small kids still in booster seats may not be a bad thing, the added height makes a surprising difference when buckling them in.

I am about to drive to the dealer to get new 2009 Legacy 2.5i. I test drove many different brands, opted out of Nissan CVT (2010 Subaru CVT as well), and decided on proven 4speed automatic. I am coming out of Olds Intrigue - good car if it wasn't for famous intake gasket, but it gave me many years of relatively trouble free driving.
I did a lot of reading, Legacy looked like a good buy with latest incentives. I like the looks and 4 wheel drive - important here in Toronto area.
Are there any particular areas to keep an eye on during first days/weeks of driving?
Do you change oil after first 1k or keep driving to 6k (km) as schedule says?

During your test drive do a figure-8 in an empty parking lot to make sure all the diffs and bearings are operating smoothly (I'd do that in *any* car). Test drive with the windows open and the radio off to listen for any odd noises.
Also, buy it in the sunlight, so any paint or body flaws are visible.
Best of luck!

My climate and audio controls in my 2007 Subaru Legacyused to flicker at times, too, and now they have gone completely blank. The heat and audio are still working, I just can't change channels or change the temperature. I checked and replaced all the fuses that could be linked to this problem and it still persists. Any suggestions?
