It's really been a nightmare on
problems coming up. I owned the car
until 72,000 miles. I had to replace
5 wheel bearings with no sign of a
fix. I had to replace the
clutch/flywheel/pressure plate around
50k milesfo $1500. Both of these
problems are well documented. Good
news is that the cluch problem is
supposed to be fixed now. That
chattering sound is not normal. Mine
went bad. I got bad support from
subaru for the problems. It's really
been a thorn in my side. My gas
mileage was around 21 mpg. The stock
tires (bridgestones duelers) wear
really poorly. The cheaper brands
work better. The windshield is also
fragile, chipping easily.
Sufficient horses (160Hp). The
handling was pretty good.
Wheelbearings, clutch, gas mileage
(related to O2 sensor?), tire wear,
and customer service.
