ON THE ROAD – MEMORIAL DAY
2020 Subaru Legacy Limited XT
By: Cathy Droz – HER Certified
I’ve worked hard and with integrity in both my business and my personal life because I want to leave a “legacy” for my children. A Legacy of instilling Honesty, Excellence and Respect for women in auto buying through my book, training, and speaking. I also have wanted to test drive the 2020 Subaru LEGACY… and that I did over the Memorial Day weekend.
I started by driving the Subaru from my home to Gilbert, Arizona to shoot a few videos for World Wide RV with Wally Cahill. The one-hour drive was a pleasure in the 2020 Subaru. I don’t know if it was the new 2.4 liter turbocharged BOXER engine with 260 hp paired with high-torque Lineartronic CVT that made it smooth or if it was the comfort of the driver’s seat with it’s 8-way power passenger mode.
I do know one thing for sure, I loved the SUBARU STARLINK Legacy Package and here is why. It has a 11.6-inch Multimedia Navigation with 11.6-inch high-resolution touchscreen; new on-screen controls for audio, HVAC, and vehicle features; combination meter integration; smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay, Android. Auto and new STARLINK apps included Bluetooth, hands free phone and audio streaming connectivity; AM/FM stereo; Sirius XM All access Radio, Traffic and Travel Link, HD Radio, over the air updates and Tom Tom Navigation. I felt like I could conduct my personal and business agenda with just voice commands and never have to take my eyes off the road; and if I did, the Legacy has DriveFocus Distraction Mitigation System, so I could be attentive and on point while driving.
I was extremely fortunate on that Friday because I was able to test drive a 31-foot RV and a 190-inch Subaru. Both are fabulous forms of transportation and allowed me to forget we were in a pandemic for one day.
We celebrate Memorial Day to honor all our men and woman who have served and are no longer with us. It is a day to raise your flag, post patriotic quotes on your social media and have an extra day to be with family and friends.
I am grateful to every man and woman who gave their lives for our freedom. My wish for leaving a legacy can’t compare… I drove a Legacy, but these heroes left a LEGACY.
