We just purchased our first Subaru for my wife. Neither of us had owned or driven one before. Wow, was I impressed. I figured it would be a typical Japanese tin can with no power. This car is all business and yet refined. Fantastic engine, plenty of head and leg room (I'm 6'3). Smooth endless power on tap. Nice layout of the interior controls. Absolutely an outstanding car.
Love the AWD and the 3.6R engine. Cargo space is ample and the fact this thing was made to leave the pavement is just an added bonus.
