Just replace the O2 sensor?

Have an 05 Subaru Legacy. ~70k miles. The check engine light comes on reliably with wide open throttle (and considering I'm in Pittsburgh, the land of bridges and merge points...). The diagnostic code says low voltage on bank 1 sensor 1. Should I just swap the O2 sensor? I ask because I don't really understand why I'd only be getting the low voltage code with WOT.

Is there an Apple of carmakers?

Which carmakers these days (that sell in the US) have really good build quality? I'm thinking high quality interior materials, excellent fit and finish, as well as well thought out interior components like control layouts, displays, and compartments? Maybe carmakers (or models) that are known for little surprising details? I'm now starting to look for a smaller sedan or maybe hatchback/wagon under $40K. Some of the models I'm looking at so far are the Volvo S60/V60, Subaru Legacy/Impreza, Toyota Prius, Audi A4, maybe BMW X1.

The Mystery of the Always-Backward-Funky-Forward Subaru

Our wagon has a quirky automatic transmission—the same problem with little change for six years: Sometimes it won’t shift into drive, but it will always always engage in reverse. The go-to fix? Drive backward to a slope that enables a rolling start forward, shift into drive and tap-tap the gas until, eventually, *clunk* it engages. Diagnosis? [more inside]

Can you help me index and annotate my brain for my daughter.

I have a health condition that may end my life prematurely. I am an "older" parent of an only child who is currently 8 years old. It's important to me that I leave a record of who I was. Can you help me with strategies to help me "index and annotate" myself for her, so that when she is older she could have an idea of her father as an adult beyond just the Daddy that I am to her now?
