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.

Overall:

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.
