Bought for $3,000, sold for $400. Transmission went out 1 week after purchase. Put another $1,200 in it trying to keep it running for my wife. Still drivable, just not on highway (it would not go above 40 mph). Head gasket blew after 3 months. Found out later that all wheel drive was never really working (no power going to the rear wheels). Power steering went out. Stereo stopped working. Hatch lock broke and would not close.
Durable interior and exterior with good styling. Very easy to work on unless you are changing spark plugs.
Subaru needs to stop making these modern day jalopies. From our experience the whole car is mechanically unreliable and unpredictable.
