ReviewI expect to put about 250,000 miles on this car at a rate of 50,000 miles per year driving the car for business. If you don't mind a taut suspension, the car accelerates briskly and handles brilliantly regardless of weather or road conditions. I used to drive a 99 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT and this car is much livelier although the suspension is less forgiving on rough pavement. If reliability, AWD and the "fun-to-drive" factor are high priorities for you, then give this car serious consideration. Its back seat is cramped for adults but can be used for smaller children. If you want a more sedate ride, then check out a Legacy.
Best FeaturesAWD, performance and handling, reliability and Subaru reputation. Note - Subaru of America repaired an A/C compressor on my 99 Legacy--outside of the warranty period--because they felt that it shouldn't have failed. Subaru earned a customer for life!
Worst FeaturesHave options, which should be standard, such as fog lights, the extended armrest and the spoiler port installed. Subaru should be embarrassed by the way their otherwise excellent dealers try to gouge for installing options.
