Just can't get into the Journey, but I have a friend who has also had a good experience.
I had setup to take the legacy on an extended drive test drive then found Subaru is still offering overnight test drives so I'm doing that now. There are a lot of things to like about that car. Starlink is light years better than their previous infotainment. The car drives great, not sure about seat comfort yet will have to take it on a long drive tomorrow.
I was thinking of the current M. Gas mileage is not great but man that car is fun to drive. 2013 has slightly better crash test ratings than the 2011 and 2012, but used ones don't seem that hard to find.
The Genesis has definitely been on my list, I test drove one a couple weeks ago as I was a fan of the previous version as well. In its base form with RWD it was a nice car. With the added packages and AWD it definitely goes up several notches. The package with upgraded leather has power thigh support extension; anybody should be able to get comfy in those thrones. Not sure I can justify the price when a used Infiniti M37 has a similar feature set and feels a little more fun to drive though the Genesis is easily more settled on the road, worth considering again especially with the great warranty.
Test drove a Fusion last night, 30-45 mins as the dealership just gave us the keys. You're right, I found the car to be extremely comfortable with minimal driver fatigue. Both the 2015 and 2014 seemed like great values. The turbo four cylinder in that is better than the inline 6 in the Legacy both in performance and mpg hwy. My Ford Touch lags, wife felt it was "plasticky" inside. Unfortunately the 2015 we took out had weird noise sounded like a strut issue, bad impression, though always possible with a sample size of one.
The Acura TLX and TL both are interesting. The TLX slides in similarly equipped in the Genesis price range or cheaper. Good performance, decent gas mileage, good crash tests. Acura typically has good reliability though the newest MDX 2014 seemed to dip a little bit compared <=2013 versions. I'm in, I'll probably check it out tomorrow.
Thanks for all the suggestions, well on my way to a great car!
