Loved This Car, Has So Many Features That Were New Back In The Day And Even Now. — I liked the quirkiness of everything. The layout of the instrument cluster, the air suspension and height control, drive train, so many things on these cars were typical of Subaru, Well built an easy to work on for maintenance and repairs.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Handles well, smooth ride, comfortable seats, lots of features, great drive train, very reliable.

Cons: No center diff, So take a tight corner an you feel feed back.

It Has Been Solid In Some Ways And A Pain In Others. — This red subaru is solid and drives well. It starts good and electric windows operate great. Parts are starting to go on like the alternator and hoses. I bought this car a year ago with 80,000 miles and they did not tell me it was overheating with a bad head gasket and a few other things. The key on the drivers side is broken and the door locks when I get out unless I rember to stop it. So I unlock it from the passenger side and then walk around to get in.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Engine seems good and car is solid

Cons: Head gasket went out at 80,000

My First Love — I loved this car, it served me almost 20 years until it was traded in. I never got stuck anywhere with that car. The car drove on 3 cylinders in a pinch when I had trouble with the fuel injectors. The suspension was a little loose in later years for the car but it is my first love.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: AWD peformance

Cons: Power

Not Bad — It looks like crap, but it just keeps going. Its pretty low mileage for how old it is, but it really hasn't had problems. Its got great pickup (can peel out and its an automatic). The handling isn't great and the back door locks break, but overall a great car for what we payed for it.

Pros: Great acceleration, keeps running well, cheap to keep it going

Cons: appearance, noisy

"the Possum" Is My $180 Rally Car! This Ain't Your Grandma's Legacy Folks. — Got it cheap...Fixed it cheap...Modified it semi-cheap. This car handles, breaks, and even has pretty good acceleration for an EJ22. And while the engine light is pertinently ON, the problems that it has don't stop it from being insanely reliable! I have a good sound system (easy to install in Subarus) and a good alarm (w/ remote start) system, that has kept my sound system from being stolen a couple times. And don't even get me started about fun in the snow! (1-foot turning radius!)

Pros: Quick, FUN, reliable, cheap, not bad highway mileage, AWD for all weather driving.

Cons: kinda ugly, not the best town mileage, I wish it were a wagon

Reliable — This car was free of any major defects. For it's entire life it remained low maintenance. For a 4cyl 5speed it was quite peppy.

Pros: Ample Room, responsive transmission

Cons: 4cyl not 6cyl
