Is anyone else having problems with the
crappy CD player in this thing? And
I've even gottn it replaced under
warranty and it still skips or won't
even play my CDs. Besides that, the
Check Engine light keeps coming on even
though I've been reassured
that "nothing is wrong".
I'm really enjoying this vehicle. I've owned it for over a year now and I still find it
fun to drive. That says a lot given the number of cars I've owned over the years
and the fact that this is, as my title indicates, my third Subaru (My wife drives a '98
Forester and expects to for quite some time).
The car is "peppy", comes with most of the "necessary" accessories and still elicits
comments from strangers at the gas pumps. The recognized safety features cannot

I've owned Hondas and Mazdas. This is the most solid and well built hatchback I have owned. They call it a Sport Waggon. I feels very sporty in 'round town handling. It darts in and out of traffic far better than my accord or 323 ever did.
Fun! Fun! Fun!
And I don't feel guitly about it. It get good gas mileage and costs less than a similaly equiped Honda.
The peppy engine delivers smooth steady power all the way to highway speeds. The handling is very sharp and precise.
Better lumbar support is needed. I am a tall man. The Japanese designers did not have American anatomies in mind when they built these seats.
