Most of the year this car is a reliable, economical smart choice, but every time it snows it becomes one of the best cars on the road. The all manual control (no traction control, no ABS) feels fantastic, it's still stable but really playful.
This car has been a winner from day 1.
I am most impressed by the extreme
stability at high speeds. The faster
she goes the tighter she holds the
road. The all-wheel-drive system is a
gem and should be adopted by all cars
on the road. This is a well engineered
and well built automobile that Subaru
can be very proud of.
The all-wheel-drive system, and the
relatively small turning circle. I also
like the all around clear view with
minimal blind spots.
Add seals to prevent water from getting
behind the mirrors. Ours iced up and
caused the mirror to break. The
heating/air conditioning system is
marginal at best and could use some
improvement. The wire attachments to
the rear speakers could be made a
little more rugged.
This is a great car for any type of
driving! Must get it with 5 spd manual.
The handling is PHENOMENAL! Just read
the edmunds reviews. Gas milleage is
great and the sound of the boxer engine
is very unique.
Handling plain and simple... Taking
hairpin turns at 60 MPH is no problem.
