This is my first Subaru. Bought it for wagon versatility, reliability, sporty, value, Honda doesn't have wagon, and AWD was a bonus here in MN. Car has 104,000 miles. It has delivered adequately in all categories but reliability has been below my previous Hondas and Acuras. Beware of dealership performance. It has been horrendous with multiple return trips after expensive head gasket replacement. Problems started after dealer repairs. MPG 22-25.
Handling, wagon versatility, appearance, AWD, cruise control near steering wheel.
Cupholder design, breakaway side view mirrors, fuel economy, dealer mechanical skills and aptitude.
Fully equiped car, great cargo room and
versatility. Excellent handling
especially in rain & snow. Visibilty
and drivability excellent. Slugish
acceleration and poor gas mileage.
Average 21 mpg but w/ AWD.....
Possible engine leak (minor) which
drips on exhaust causing burning smell
Various backlights on dash radio &
controls have gone out-Annoying
94,000 miles w/ only brakes and oil
Cargo, nice cruising vehicle on long
trips, excellent bad weather driving
Power increase, cup holder placement,
