Our 1st Subaru, definitely not our last. Great build quality, no squeaks, rattles, or other unanticipated problems after 43,000 miles. We're so satisfied that we are selling this one to our son and buying a 2007 model.
AWD. Always on, always works, a little like driving a nice quiet snowplow (with heated leather seats). I do like the seat heaters, but the wife says "make them hotter!"
Crummy Bridgestone tires. Dump them after 30k miles or risk sidewall failure! Running Coopers now.
