After I totaled my first car my grandma gave me her old Subaru; she loved the car it was easy for her to drive and she had trouble parting with it. I drove the car a year and totaled it as well, I was only going 10 mph when I rear ended a Jeep Cherokee, afterward I got the car fixed, and it was driving pretty good, I drove from Va, to NY and back in 2 days with no problems, now the car is in the shop an they think the head gasket has blown, I think ill be buying and Audi next.
I loved the all wheel drive, we had a bad ice storm and while other people were in ditches, my outback was gripping the 2 inchs of ice.
Cup holders are awful, and the head gasket problem which I'm surprised to have read about, also the car was not built heavy enough for crashes, yet it accelerates like a huge older car.
