Purchased this vehicle as a lease turn-
in. What a GREAT car!!! Fit and
finish are excellent. The leather
interior is quite comfortable and shows
little wear after 8 years and 140,000
miles of ownership. While I have been
fairly attentive to "normal" service
intervals, I would be remiss to say
that this car owes me nothing!! I have
replaced the brake pads all arond twice
and the front rotors once (at Subaru).
Other than that (also changed the
timing belt at 90G as precaution), the
only other service the car needed was a
Thermostat (stuck open) at 136,000
miles. This is my 5th Subaru. I will
drive it until it is dead, and then I'm
going to buy another one.
Styling, Performance and Braking.
Comfortable and spacious cabin. All
controls are easily readable and
WISH SUBARU HAD NOT STOPPED THE TURBO
AT THE TIME. They have since mended the
errors of their ways!
Great AWD, but then it's not snowing
but 5% of the time even in MN! Awful
clutch, replaced at 78,000mi, had been
slipping for the past 20,000. Below
average fuel consumption, average
performance, and pretty crummy breaks.
Air leak out of corroded front
rims..reminds me of the FIAT I once
Don't think it deserves it's
AWD is great, room to spare, great
Please inprove quality! Resign that
clutch! Look at rim corrosion!
