Iíve had my Suby for nearly three years now, and I love it more and more all the time. Itís been awesome for me -- a small, sporty woman. Itís a perfect size -- not too big, but large enough to handle multiple pairs of skis, snowboards, mountain bikes, and friends. Iíve had a couple problems -- front brakes had issues after 18k, but the dealership replaced the rotors under warranty free of charge. Clock also quit -- also replaced under warranty.
Handling. Super fun to drive, decent gas mileage for an AWD, size, convenience. Iím proud to be a Subaru owner.
The car needs a larger first gear...and better speakers. Otherwise, I just love it!
