My Cars - 2002 Acura RSX | 2016 Subaru Legacy Premium AWD Sedan With EyeSight

Acura                Legacy


     Since graduating from college, I have had four cars overall.  Not a bad number to have in 6 years!  My first new car out of college was the 2002 "Desert Silver" Acura RSX.  The interior trim is Titanium.  After shopping around for a sporting, luxury coupe, I feel in love with the RSX.  The RSX had everything I was looking for in my first car.  It had power everything, leather, alloy wheels, automatic climate control, cruise control, 6 speaker CD stereo, & moonroof.  I had a few optional extras added including a 6 CD changer in the trunk along with the cargo net.  The RSX features an i-vtec engine that cranks out 160 horsepower through the 4 cylinders without the need for a turbo charger.  This car is my baby.  I have it detailed regularly, and even to this day, it looks and smells like it is a brand new car.

    One of the perks of being a pharmaceutical representative is a company car.  In February of 2005, Schering-Plough presented me with a 2005 black Ford Taurus SE.  The company buys us a brand new car every 65,000 miles, which for me is about every year and half.  The Ford Taurus was nothing like my Acura, but it was a decent everyday car.  It had power everything, power seat, CD audio, cruise control, traction control, and a V6 engine.

    I ordered another company car in 2006, and it is a nice upgrade from my Taurus.  The company got us a 2007 Ford Fusion SEL that comes standard with automatic climate control, 6 disc CD changer in dash with MP3 compatibility, auto dimming rear view mirror with compass, power everything, leather wrapped steering wheel with audio/climate/speed controls, 17 inch alloy wheels, fog lights, analog clock (like on the Infiniti models),  side and side curtain airbags, and heated power mirrors.  The car also includes the following options - ABS, daytime running lights, and power moonroof.  My new company car was delivered to me in October of 2006.  My last company car at Schering-Plough/Merck was a fully loaded 2008 Ford Fusion SEL with leather, Sync, and moonroof.

    Inventiv Health bought me a 2010 Chevrolet Equinox AWD LS SUV after I joined them in June of 2010.  It was my first SUV, and it was great for driving up in the Sierra Nevada mountains during the winter.
    In 2012, I got my first foreign company car, the 2012 Subaru Legacy AWD PZEV Premium Sedan.

    My latest company car is a 2016 Subaru Legacy AWD PZEV Premium Sedan which was ordered by my current company.  Since I have a "snow territory," I am eligible for an AWD company car.  So far, I have been very happy with the Subaru Legacy.  It handles really well.  This is my 3rd Subaru for a  company car.  The company paid for the EyeSight package too which has adaptive cruise control and lane assist.  These are amazing features which make the car practically drive itself.  The adapative cruise control automatically adjusts to the speed of the traffic.  The lane assist moves the car back into my lane if I drift.  My company is awesome!  They really care about our safety and comfort.  The 2016 Legacy also had nice updates like the dual zone climate control and advanced audio system.

    I like having two nice cars to choose from when I go out on the weekends.  The company allows us to use the company car for personal use as well so it is nice to have both a four door sedan and also my 2 door sports coupe.
