Amazing, Long-lasting, Fun Suby! — I love this car. It's amazingly fun to drive, especially considering it's my first stick! Wouldn't trade this car for anything -- I'll use it til it gives up on me! 90k miles roughly, drives like new. I'd recommend this car to anyone: commuters, occasional drivers, or the type who likes to get up in the mountains/beach for a day of play.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Awesome handling, feel and comfort -- easy to drive up hills and around town (I live in San Francisco, where hills are more abundant than flat ground!). Good looking car too, roof rack is a HUGE plus and the cargo room in the back is awesome, especially with the seats down. Had to replace my clutch at 90,000 miles (usually last around 50k, in my experience), pretty much due to wear and tear from driving up all these damned hills!

Cons: Headlights can be annoying at times -- the difference between brights on/off is significant, but to be expected; basically, can't use them unless completely alone or I'll upset a lot of people!

205,000 Miles And Running Like A Champ — Great all around car and carrying stuff. I loved its handling in the snow on trips up to the slopes. Great on gas and a bast to drive! No maintenance problems at all besides routine and super super reliable! Appearance is not too bad for a Wagon. Looks more like a hatchback with the tapered back end.

Pros: Reliable. Nothing else.

Cons: I need to look into adjusting the height of the accelerator pedel and throw out the stock rubber mats cause my heel kept getting stuck on the ridges and I didn't feel safe not being able to move my foot freely.

Love My Subaru — I love my Subaru - never had a mechanical problem. No repairs needed, great to drive highway or offroad. It's a little underpowered but gets the job done. I would buy another in a hot second and recommend it to anyone.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: reliability

Cons: nothing

The only thing missing on the Limited model is a power passenger seat. Everything else is great- ride, handling, gas mileage, interior room. Read More
