This car is able to haul loads of stuff,
has AWD, looks agressive, handles
well, and is overall a fun car to drive
(especially with the 5 speed). At this
price point, there is not much that
even comes close if those things are
important to you. Audi A4 avant, BMW
325ix wagon, etc... are more $$$.
Exterior styling. 6-Disc CD in-dash
changer. Handling on curvy roads
and in bad conditions. Ability to carry
as much or more than my Jeep
Cherokee. Reliability has been
excellent at 14k miles.
Needs more engine. Seats need
more support. Headroom is a little
low with the sunroof option. Paint
quality of all Subarus is teriible.
Chips and dings very easily. Mileage
a little low (thanks to AWD).
