A great alternative to the small SUV
crowd. AWD and decent tires make it
stick to the road under all weather
conditions; this, along with the 165hp
2.5l engine (smoothest engine I've ever
driven), make it great fun to drive!
On a recent drive from WA to Denver, my
OBS was the only car around able to
maintain the speed limit over the high
passes (11,000 feet) at night with it
raining/snowing. Lots of interior
cargo organization options. I got the
OBS instead of TS or WRX wagons because
I liked the 2-tone color scheme, and
more standard cargo-related options.
Map lights/auto-dimming mirror.
Convenience of cargo tray/cargo
bin/pullout cargo cover.
Fix poor clutch design -- mine's got a
strong clutch shudder when cold.
