Love It — Like the new-age look without the new car price. Has top of the line features for a much smaller price. Most of these have wind noise on the drivers mirror (whistle) that can be fixed. We like the safety and comfort of Subaru.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: highly rated vehicle, good experiences with it so far, plenty of top of the line safety equipment, AWD is excellent.

Cons: slightly expensive to maintain

Nice And Luxuryous And Sporty Suv Crossover — Excellent quality, great leather seating with climate control to make it like a luxurious sport utility crossover. Not too good for family. Also not too spacious. Has a pretty high off the ground clearence. Although people think it is a station wagon it is an SUV

Pros: It's a nice luxuryous Subaru quality with leather seats and climate control

Cons: Not too much of a family car, but has a nice touch

They Sell Like Hot-cakes, Even When They Are Used. — Really like the all-wheel drive and the roomy interior. Standard Stereo is pretty sweet, too. Not sure yet about the gas mileage. Doesn't seem to be as good as it is listed in the blue book, but it is fine.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: One of the best vehicles on the road - very reliable.

Cons: Not the most beautiful beast on the road, but not ugly.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas saver, big cargo room

Cons: appearance is a not very cute but OK

Good — holds lots of stuff. doesn't break down like american cars. handles decently for a steel box with wheels. way too slow for my tastes. four wheel drive a must have for snowy conditions, also makes empty parking lots in winter much more fun

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

Pros: haul stuff

Cons: going fast
