I live in a rural hilly area. Had BIG
problems in the snow with a pickup.
Bought my Subaru, and now I offer folks
stranded in the ditches with 4x4
pickups a ride into town. Get 22mpg in
town, 29mpg cruising at 70 (both with
aircon on). Have had zero problems of
any sort at 48,000 miles. Local Subaru
workshop has been spot-on with what
little they've had to do. Sons (8&10)
love being seen cruising around in
sporty styled car.
Fold down back seats mean my 2 kids and
I can pack the skis in no problem. AWD
performance in winter weather really
good. Heated seats in winter.
My opinion is original Michelins not as
good as far cheaper Goodrich Touring
T/A in the snow. If you want
performance buy the 6 cylinder version.
