Love Subie's — This car may be a bit old, but it is still really reliable and runs really good. It has lots of cargo space. It drives great over the Mountain passes up here in the Pacific North West and on long road trips. It's a Subaru so the name pretty much speaks for itself

Pros: Subaru 'Nuff said

Cons: aged

Value For The Money — Typical Subaru, keeps on running. Fuel efficient for an AWD vehicle. Handles corners well with a low center of gravity. With proper maintenance, these cars give you years/miles of service. Subaru loyal drivers can provide testimony to their longevity.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability

Cons: Not a "head-turner"

I'll Always Love My Slammin Subi! — I loved this car! Interior was a little lacking for me as it was an older car. It def had some pickup to it, just would have been better if they came out with a turbo gt model in 96.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: With the cargo room in it, the subwoofers absolutely SLAMMED! If i would have got it all painted the midnight blue the car would have been outstanding.

Cons: Gas mileage......I only got about 20mpg.

Great Overall Sedan. Subaru Quality Shines — Great first car. Drove it everywhere. Hills, valleys, and mountains, you name it. This car did it all. AWD is a great plus to have in winter and slick roads. Took two small wrecks and had little to show for it. long lasting and fun, I would definitely reccommend it to anyone taht asked.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun and fuel efficient., with AWD Subaru standard

Cons: I didnt find any

Great Dependable And Good Gas Mileage — This car was alot of fun to drive where ever i went. I did alot of highway driving between san diego and seattle and it always made the sisquox mountains seem like tiny hills.If i could find this car i would by it in a heart beat.

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

Pros: Fun sporty and go any where

Cons: Not sure of any right now

Scooby Legacy Gt — Understated, M3 crushing performance. Solid as a rock inside and out. Looks awesome in my opinion. Inside has all the toys you would possibly want or need, sucks petrol like an oil tanker though. Feels like a train on the road, grip, grip and more grip. 4WD security and boxer exhaust note makes the whole experience worth while.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance, build quality, handling.

Cons: Fuel consumption.

Ubi! — I love the fact that all Subaru's have all wheel drive, it comes in handy when I'm driving though the dreary streets of Oregon. the car is fun to drive when i have a new axle. The interior/Exterior would look better if i would've gotten it not totaled. Other than that, it's a miracle car. i love having it and the handling isn't too bad either. The car is a blast to have

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good gas mileage, great handling for all types of weather

Cons: sorta older car, my trunk leaks sometimes
