I've owned my Subie for the past 4 years. I bought it knowing it had a rebuilt title and had the passenger front redone, to include rewelding some of the fenderwell. I bought it w/ 92k mi and now have 133k mi on it. Its never let me down. The factory clutch had some minor defects and doesn't have a good clamping force, but I replaced that for a performance one. Its a fun ride and I love taking the long way home from work. I baby it about 80% of the time and drive it hard the rest and not once had an issue w/ the car. It has developed a small oil leak (1/2 qt between oil changes) but its not enough to matter. The only real downside is the decent MPG's and cheap looking interior.
I've had mine for 4 years now, has
57,400 miles on it, not a single
mechanical problem with the vehicle.
It is a hoot to drive, very zippy. I
pull a snowmobile/trailer with it very
easily. I think this design looks much
better than the WRX.
This package of performance, safety,
reliability, and cost can not be
topped. The car is extremely fun to
drive with good torque and HP numbers
as well as close ratio gearing. The
AWD provides excellent grip for summer
fun and winter safety. I have not had
one single problem with the vehicle,
and I am at 37,500 enthusiastic miles.
I bought this car new in 1999. I've had the car for 6 years now and have put 110,000 miles on it with few problems. I've had to replace the battery and a few light bulbs - that's it outside of standard service. This was my first all AWD car and I'll probably never go back to either a FWD or RWD car. It's so much better in the weather. I'm planning on driving it for another 3-4 years and then maybe trading up to a new Legacy GT.
This was my first new car purchase and I
wish I NEVER traded it in! It was so
perfect. I live in the Pocono Mountains
in Northeast PA and in our harsh winters
and mountainous terrain I NEVER had any
troubles and I was running V rated
DIRECTIONAL PERFORMANCE TIRES! Unreal!
I never had to shovel it out after the
plows went by, oil changes were so easy
(no jacking required) but the AWD did
wear tires out faster than rear or front
