The Subaru Legacy right hand drive, postal all-wheel-drive wagon. Built in Lafeyette, Indiana.

Call 1-800-SUBARU-3 if you want to tell Subaru to make it again.

The steering wheel and all controls are on the right so the carrier sits on the same side of the car as the mailboxes.

The rear seats fold FLAT so the cargo is convenient and easy to reach! And there is a barrier when they are flat so in emergencies everything shouldn't slide into the front!

All-wheel-drive is the smart safe way to go. On slick rain wet roads or on snow,  the Subaru has great traction and it doesn't drive like truck!
