This 2001 LL Bean is my 2nd subaru.
However, I probably won't buy
another due to all the rattles and wind
noise in my Bean. This after barely
11,000 miles. These are body integrity
noises which are proving nearly
impossible to find. My 1992 Miata is
quiter than this rattletrap. If you put
ear plugs on the car drives fine, has
plenty of power, and looks (imho) great.
It excells on the road until you get a
side wind or pass a large truck, then
it sounds like waxed paper on a pocket
comb. These cars are sold by GM dealers
in Texas and they don't much care about
customer satisfaction. Like Ricky
Nelson, I think I'd rather drive a
Powerful engine, overall great looks,
solid feel at high speed.
Fire the assembly workers in Indiana
and have the car assembled in Japan.
