Take off feels like an American luxury V8, except it's awd so no tires slip.

"what kind of car is that" question. I love the asymmetric mag wheels (L/R are different) which adds to uniqueness. It's a heavy and wide car, slalom like bends gets the car leaning like a boat, but it still grips. Great city driver if you don't mind the 6cyl mileage, great hwy cruiser. Braking is mediocre for car of this weight and pwr. Only problems were creaky dashboard (known to Subaru) and weak Tranny, which died after I traded it in. I'd taken it on fishing trip & even minor offroad (by accident) stoped when tranny temp light turned on. I'd buy this car again if possible.
This car had a spaceage design that I loved. 0-60km (km not miles) acceleration would leave pretty much any car except porsches/drag cars in the rearview mirror. Past 60km/hr however even civics would catch up.
