I bought this car brand new in 2003. It has been problem free and reliable, I can honestly say this has been the best car I have ever owned. I would gladly buy another new 6 cylinder Subaru without a second thought.
I love the McIntosh stereo-Its awesome!
the Onstar was also great when it was new-before GM aquired it. It drives and handles great in all weather conditions.
I wish it did not require premium fuel, since finding octane ratings higher than 90 in AK aren't common.
