At 2 years old it crept stealthily out of a field that had become a mud bog that big 4x4's were being winched from after a substanital rainstorm. I couldn't believe it! I was the only vehicle to get out without assistance! Had minor 1st gear stalling problem that required a switch replacement this year, but no other problems in 4 years!
Versatile! Can take the whole family out one day and haul mulch the next! Last year maxxed out the 1000 pound hauling and did well during a short drive. Very agile on the highway!
Subaru no longer makes these, but It would have been nice to have the bed extender as standard.
