The car was not in the best of shape. I have seen other cars in better condition. I was not sure the car would run that well.

Overall:

Nice Family Sedan — AWD is heavy on gas use. Back seat middle can be tight with two booster seats at each side. BOXER should last longer than others. good hauling capacity. meeds less maintenance than many other Japanese cars. A very sturdy car that doesn't cut corners. May be on the pricey side comparedto other Japanese makes.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A very durability vehicle.

Cons: Not the greatest on fuel efficiency.

A Very Good Car. People Who Live In Areas With Snow Will Appreciate The Awd. Fairly Fun To Drive. — It is a great car. It may not be the best looking car, but it is reliable. I have had one maintenance problem, but my Subaru is a repaired salvaged title. It is pretty noisy in the back/cargo area. It has AWD so handling is great, and has performed fairly well off road and in weather. It has decent acceleration and braking. It has gotten pretty good gas milage, better on the highway. Mine is standard transmission, so very fun to shift and accelerate.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love how it has AWD and a manual transmission.

Cons: Noisy in the rear/cargo area.

Overall:

Great Car, Love It To Death. — This car is quite a quick car. 0-100 in 7 Seconds. Brakes very well. Handles ok, needs sports lowered suspension to really set it off. Very fun car to drive. Reasonable price, but I need to get a set of chrome wheels to make it awesome!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun, comfortable, economical

Cons: None

Made The Best Choice Of Buying It — Love the car all around.. looks amazing. it handles perfectly on corners not much body roll which is fantastic for an suv but that is thanks to the boxer engine that it has. The front hood scoop gives it a very egressive feel to it what also is attractive. the sun roof is huge. It goes all the way back to the second row

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: the front end

Cons: exhaust
