counter the counterspin- The power on
this car, especially
low down and especially in the 5-speed,
is terrific. I am more than happy with
the engines response, from in town to
highway trips, and I like to keep the
SPORT in driving. The handleing on
these cars is telepathic. They grip
from all four corners, stay flat and
remain predictable. The braking gets
some complaints, but I hve seen no
issues in the first 6K. Interior is
handsome, seats fit well after break-
in, I recommend lifting them slightly
up off their lower setting, and tilting
the seat relatively far back to give it
a more roomy feel.
The white Subaru wagon looks BMW esque
with a few coats of wax sitting in my
drive. The 35th
ann. model has a clean and classic
appeal not matched by the unreliable
trendy dogs from VW's stables (stale).
So- take a test drive and be open to
Telescoping steering wheel would put it
over the top.
