Safe, Reliable, Great First Car — I really enjoy how great this car runs, especially in the snow. no matter what, you wont be able to get this car stuck, the AWD is just great. All around awesome car, could make a great first car for your son or daughter.

Pros

This car handles great in the winter, I don't have any issues in bad PA weather going the speed limit. It'll get up and go without any issues at all even in this -20 degree weather! It hasn't failed me yet.

Cons

It is a 2001 so it is over ten years old, it has acquired some rust and other dents in the car, including that the Subaru insignia has fallen out of the front grill.

It's Defiantly A Starter Car Or Something For A Home To Work Car. — I like the way it handles and its functional, however the inside is very noisy and it isn't the most stylish thing to be driving around. It is pretty much a home and work car for me and has been that way for about a year and a half, as my first car I'm defiantly attached to it.

Pros

All wheel Drive, Handles nice with lower center of gravity than the Outback.

Cons

Gets about 25 mpg average. Good for allwheel drive, but I prefer better gas mileage.

Good Everyday And Weekend Car. — The only real flaw is that I am using it to commute and would love better gas mileage. The car has been great since I bought it used with 50K miles on it. I put on over 100K miles. Since my wife has the new Crosstrek XV, I don't need to commute with the all wheel drive gas mileage penalty.

Perfect For Me. — At first i wasn't in love with the exterior of my car its two colors, but learned to like it after i saw the interior. :) perfect for colorado crazy weather and am very glad of my purchase.it's now at 171,000 miles so it's starting to worry me.

Pros

All wheel drive... IT'S A SUBARU, lol that says it all

Cons

Oxidized head lights, the seal around the lights on the hatch can rot and allow water to fill the light assembly.

Awesome Car For Single Guy And His Weimaraner — I am still in love with this car after 6 months of ownership. It is fun to drive, it handles great, and it has the ability go nearly anywhere and haul about anything. Now is the time to snag one of these cars that sold new for $30 to $40k+. $5000 is a fair price for a daily driver in good condition with around 200,000 miles; the head gasket and timing belt should be replaced already. Keep the fluids up. Maintain the brakes and tires. This is a car for average to small folks. Over 6 foot tall folks may find it difficult to enter and exit the driver seat.

Good Car If You Have A Long Winter, Comfortable For Whole Family — Performance is ok, breaks and handles well, but not as good as Impreza Build Quality is fair Good looking for a wagon with lots of room for gear Cost of ownership can become expensive past 180,000km Car rode a lot smoother than Impreza on longer trips with about the same fuel economy could be a decider for potential customers
