Great Car, If You Have The Money To Spend On It — I wouldn't trade my car for anything new off the line from Subaru these days. Not that the newer cars are worse, but I am completely satisfied with the car I bought over 10 years ago. Cheers to another 5 - 10 years. Maybe the next one will be the XV Crosstrek.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Plenty of cabin space and the car still drives like new 10 years later. I feel like this car has gone the distance and with the proper maintenance and up keep, I'll most likely see another 5 - 10 years out of this car.

Cons: The initial price was shocking but after paying it off, it was a great investment.

I'd Do It Again — Love this car. My third. Great car for my family and dog. It's not a car for performance hounds. It's got a 4 cyl engine - but passes fine everywhere except hills. It rarely needs repairs - this is my third and I think I've been in about half a dozen times on all three - for a total of almost 300,000 so far.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent value, practicality and performance in snow

Cons: if you need to look macho

I'm Glad It Is My First Car. — Interior isn't meant for harsh usage. Plastic pieces fall off inside. Nice subwoofer under the drivers seat tho. loll. Out dated radio. Needs an auxiliary plug. Breaks squeal a lot, needs to be sanded. A good first car. Dad bought it because it is tc. Manual because it was for my mom. Goes through about a tank a week. An excellent first car to have, it's been through more than enough.....bumper ripped off, up curbs, into cement parking structures, into other cars, it's been through a lot.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Acceleration....<3

Cons: interior isn't the best.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its a subie!!!

Cons: not sure yet

Pros: AWD, decent performance, decent mileage, good reliability, horizontally opposed engine, cute.

Cons: Tires cost a FORTUNE!

Confidence Building Car — AWD a I4 engine are a wonderful combination. This car we got new in the family, it is a wonderful winter car and inspires confidence. It's engine sounds vastly different then any other due to the way it is build horizontally. The car had a fantastic suspensing which goes over bumps more comfortably then any other I have ever experienced. Only real drawback is gas millage, very low due to the always engaged awd.

Pros: Very competent car, great for winter

Cons: Real gas guzzler

Love My Subaru Legacy Wagon — Excellent car for every person, especially the power with manual transmission. I installed the McCintosh radio system the Outback VDC 3.0R and it is a direct fit and sounds great. Super easy to do maintenance for all fluid changes. Tune ups are a breeze and lots of online forums, youtube videos to help with any know issues. Made in the USA

Pros: Great handling after installation of Bilstein shocks

Cons: Front O2 sensor cost me $250
