I had been eyeing this car up for almost a year before I decided to buy it. You don't see many of them on the road because Subaru isn't exactly a household name, but I'm glad they've kept this car a secret. I put over 500 miles on the car in the first week of ownership because it is so fun to drive. I feel bad leaving it in the garage. It begs to be driven!
It's a fun, fast, and great looking car. The AWD handles great in rain. I feel like I got a LOT for my money with this car. 250 hp! Cars that were similarly equipped cost over $5k more. Subaru quality is also five star.
I don't really care for the dual climate control and the stereo is really hard to upgrade from what I hear.
