Quite a surprise for me to first drive this Subaru. I had a couple of older, less expensive Suby's in the past. This one truly is a sports sedan that ranks with the Mazda 6, Jetta, Altima, and Accord. With the AWD feature you're one notch above these cars in bad weather. This car is very smooth without being mushy. Quiet and comfortable interior.
Favorite part of this car would have to be the interior. And the fact that during snow I can stay inside this interior while everyone else is shoveling themselves out of a hole, love the AWD!
Like many sedans around 2000, this one could use a little more muscle under the hood.
