I bought it 4 years ago because I needed a car on short notice and wanted a wagon. Learned to love it because it never lets you down and does everything as well as a new car for 1/10th the price. After 17 years, almost everything on the car is still original and there isn't a spot of rust. This is the car that made Subaru a legend.
Reliability, space, winter driving is a 10/10, factory stereo has an aux jack.
Could use another 20 ft/lbs on the bottom end so trans doesn't have to down shift so much.
