After straying away from German cars and owning several Japanese cars/trucks/SUVs, I was determined to get back behind the wheel of a German car, most likely the king of them all. However, after doing a lot of research and then test driving the new Subaru 3.6R Limited, there was no doubt that I wanted this car. The look and feel of the 3.6R Limited cannot be beat, especially for the price of around $29k. It wants to go fast and handles better than any other all-wheel drive car I have owned, including those with Quattro. If you are considering a pricey German or any other Japanese brand, try the 3.6R Limited first. If you can find one, you will not be disappointed!
Overall look and feel of the car - inside and out, high grade interior materials, paddle shifters, handling.
