This car is the most reliable vehicle that I've ever owned. I'm an auto tech and I really don't like working on my own cars and this one really fits the bill. It is also one of the most sure footed vehicles that I've EVER owned for ice and snow.
This is my third Subaru wagon and they just keep getting better. I'm not easy on cars, but these Subarus take the beating and keep on running in style. Not to mention I can drive past most cars stuck in the mud and snow. I take alot of long trips and this model is sooo comfy. I always reccommend Subaru AWD to my friends.
AWD and aggressive engine.
I'd like to see more reasonably priced accessories.
I bought this car with 65K and had to
put a miminum of $1500/year to keep
running! MINE HAS 100K NOW. Multiple
failures and trust me, YOU CAN'T FIX
THEM YOURSELF! You can't even change
sparkplugs without a special tool.
DON'T BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK! My short
list of repairs: window switch $250,
oil pump $1000, DASH LIGHTS $250, rear
hatch stuck $150, starter $400,
alternator $400, FINNALY transfer case
seals $1500! I did all dealership
visits thinking I would prevent
breakdowns but I WAS WRONG! I'M
SELLING. ANYONE WANT TO BUY?
4 WHEEL DRIVE
GUTLESS ENGINE, VERY UNRELIABLE, VERY
EXPENSIVE TO FIX! DON'T BUY IT.
We purchased this car new, and have
always maintained it at the dealer.
Over the years, we have not only had
too many unexpected repairs (antenna,
alternator, compressor, engine seals,
engine seals, engine seals), but we
repeatedly get it fixed only to have
to return the next day for "final
fixes". Compared to our 95 Honda
Accord, this was so much less reliable
we will not consider another Subaru.
All wheel drive has always been good
in our snowy state (NY)
This car was bought used with 30,000
miles already racked up. Could not
understand why someone would trade this
car with such low milage, however I
soon found out why! The car is
terrible! A never ending source of
annoying repairs from instrument
cluster lights to alternators to whell
bearings, axles, tie-rod ends, and
Catalytic converters!. I also own a
ford crown victoria and the Ford is
MUCH MORE reliable. Gas milage for a
2.2 4 cylinder is around 19 mpg
currently. Car is GARBAGE and will
shortly be sold.
