Great For Family Adventures! — The AWD is great, mine is an automatic so it doesn't accelerate as fast as I would like, but it handles great. I wish it had better gas mileage, but it's not to bad, mid 20's.

Pros: AWD!, almost 200,000mi and still going strong!

Cons: Wish it were a 5spd

Fun Little Zipper With Plenty Of Room — This car is very fun to drive, 5spd H4 2.5L. It sounds amazing and actually has coupe performance unlike other GT's. If you're going to pick on up however; make sure the cylinder heads have been done. If not the don't buy it unless you're paying $2,000 or less becasue it's a $3,000 job and you WILL have to do it. Overall very practical and very sporty, the best mix of two worlds.

Pros: + good acceleration
+ sounds great
+ high MPG/KPL
+ Sporty appearance
+ lots of interior room

Cons: - prone to catastrophic engine failure
- lower top speed than turbo version
- most dashboard buttons not illuminated at night
- very expensive to repair

Rice Rocket With An Attitude — psh, The awd and low profile, make for one great winter driver. She's heavy, and rides extreamly well. Her sleek design gives her pretty good gas milage, but dangit, my betty keeps breaking down on me every year during the summer time!

Pros: psh

Cons: third motor...

1998 Subaru Legacy Outback — Secure AWD, great alternative to an SUV for rugged field work, although city mpg is low (21). Performs fairly well, though it has a unique growl (All Subaru boxer engines are supposed to be noisy). Fairly expensive to maintain when I bought it second hand. It doesn't handle as well as I hoped, compared to a smaller car such as a 4 door Japanese import, but it is WAY better than driving an SUV. It performs exceedingly well on rutted and gravel roads. Has great carrying capacity.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Well designed, performs well on rough roads, secure.

Cons: More expensive, somewhat louder engine.
