'96 Subaru Outback — Performance - Almost unstoppable in the snow with winter tires on. Great ground clearance - better than most SUVs. AWD system up to most challenges, though not quite up to Audi Quattro standards. Quality - With 144K we're starting to see more frequent repairs - up to 100K was fairly trouble free. One repair under warranty - replaced the transfer case. Appearance - Just starting to see rust LR wheel well. Fun - This car is practical and functional - I won't describe it as fun.

Pros: AWD, Ground Clearance, and Interior Space

Cons: Access to Spark Plugs #3 & 4

Solid Build — Very solid...Runs and rides great. Imma hoping to upgrade the speakers. Stock ones work and are decent but to compliment my new stereo I need something that has some low end. Nice car to drive. Not the best acceleration, but it can turn on a dime. Just get some speed up and follow the apex of the curve. BTW I get great fuel mileage considering the fact that it is 12 years old.

Pros: Does what you ask it to do

Cons: Didnt come supercharged :(

Not The Fastest But Still Has A Bit Of Power — i like this car even though its not the fastest. my vr was faster. it still has good power & look pretty good in my opinion. i also love that subie sound. the bad thing is its a bit laggy & the twin turbo setup isnt the greatest

Pros: better than a non turbo
has that awesome subie sound
looks nice
quite handy having a wagon

Cons: gas guzzler
a bit laggy

It Was A Good Car In It's Day. — I've spent about as much as I paid for it in repairs. That's what you get when you can only afford a 10year old car.

Pros: Kicks snow's ass!

Cons: Everything is getting old and it's all expensive to fix.

Perfect Surfing Skiing Mobile With Some Getup & Go — This car did everything that was asked of it. Only drawbacks were running expenses.

Pros: 4wd, fast (twin turbo), space for all

Cons: Thirsty machine, on the shopping list for theives!

Quick, Drives Like Its On Rails, Awd Is The Best — Stock it isnt that quick but it goes once you build it, no need to lower it unless you really want to stick to the pavement

Pros: Its a subie

Cons: Isnt that quick stock but put some $ into it and your good

Well Spent £25 — 2nd farm car, bought from a nieghbour... the combination of a 1.8l Subaru Boxxer engine and the virtual non-existance of exhaust pipe meant the making of a monster that could go anywhere and be heard from across the valleys. It's life was ended thanks to a gate post and me attempting a 4WD-powerslide around a corner

Pros: beastlyness, 4WD

Cons: Flat tyres, buckled bonnet, punctured radiator
