I've driven subies in Alaska for about
18 years..before most people ever heard
of them. The main reason is they long
ago perfected reliable all wheel drive.
Finally, they added fun to the
equation! I got the wagon so I'd have a
little more room for camping gear, the
roof rack, and the fold-down rear
seats. It's also cheaper to insure then
the sedan, even though it's basically
identical. Go figure. I've only had it
about a month, but it's a fun ride.
More power then anyone really needs in
a car this size, but that's why it's
fun. Easily became the car where I'd be
tooling along and look down and notice
I was going 85 instead of 65.
AWD, killer subaru heater (a point lost
on most, but they make the best heaters
in cars), speed and power. Rear seats
fold nearly flat. Lots of good standard
features, A/C, cruise, power just about
everything. No external radio antennae
to worry about in the car wash.
Disconnect the e-brake from the
headlights. Premium package should be
available for wagon. Need more exterior
color options. Better "premium" stereo.
Include auto-start as an option. Range
could be better, but it is a turbo.
