I've only had this car for 8 months,
but I can already say that I made a
good decision buying the car.
Definately a good choice to go with
the wagon. All the power, with all the
versitility and space. I race my
mountain bike all over Wisconsin, and
have never had a problem with not
having enough space. I would suggest
the short-throw shifter and arm-rest
extension as extras that are well
worth the money.
Only gripes with the car is the gas
milage and the fact that it runs on
premium... but don't get the wrong
idea, you don't buy this car for the
I am a fan of the 227 horse engine. If
you've got the money to do it, go with
a bigger turbo, as the stock turbo is
quite laggy. The wagon's fold down
seats and hidden storage area under
the floor mat are nice for someone who
camps or hauls a lot of equipment.
So far the only problem I've had has
to do with my bike rack not fitting
properly on the car. This is a problem
only because it is an aftermarket
rack, and not the factory Subaru rack.
I find that the apholstry in the car
is difficult to clean too.
