I work with a ton of car buffs who
sport around in their 50k porsche's or
other sports cars. Not all of them
appreciate the car design but they all
have the same reaction when I drop the
clutch at about 3500 RPMs...Holy S!*#!!.
If you want a luxury "sports" car look
somewhere else. If you want a car that
drives like a gokart on steroids this
is your ride.
With the popularity of the car there
are a wide range of modifications
coming online for those who want to
take the next step in performance.
Pure power, bucket front seats that hug
you while you drive, the waves you get
from other scooby owners.
Trunk latch is horrible, sun 'blocker'
above mirror is useless, cheap plastic
sun shades for driver and passenger.
Need a power antenna or internal.
Subarus are tough, easy to work on,
and fun to drive. Not the biggest car
inside, but for a single commuter or a
small family it is fine. The AWD is
great when it is needed, but otherwise
sucks up a bit of power. The car is a
perfect blend of utility and
performance, and is a great value.
AWD, flat four power, torque, and
sound, ease of maintenance
Stereo, cupholders (you could count
them on half a hand if you were a
Muppet), and paint.
The best performing car I've ever
driven. Great fun around town, or on
the expressway. It's a little cramped
inside (I'm 6'3"), and seriously needs
a 6 speed trans, but other than that, I
LOVE THIS CAR!
It's a sleeper.
Needs a six speed tranny. Needs a
little more "me" space inside. The
interior finish needs some upgrading.
This car is an awsomely fun drive.
Very good pick-up, very quiet. Quite a
sleeper. Unexpected power from only a
4 cyl. Everyone I have let drive this
car loves it. (Even my Porsche friend)
Outstanding handling around turns.
Good everyday driver also.
The acceleration is unparalleled in any
car $25k. AWD is very handy. Brakes
are good, but would be better stocked
with Brembros. Handles outstandlingly
Cupholder above the cd player is odd.
Hood dents easily. The little flap
between the window visors is too small
to actually block the sun.
this car runs great & steers realy good
under cornering, has lots of power &
looks good to. my wife chose this car
for her & she is happy with it. it;s a
little small for me but i injoy
driveing it also, we realy wanted the
all wheel drive system so we can go
when the weather is bad. over all we
like the car & have had no prolbems
with it as of now.
