"Fantastic value, tight steering, love the performance. Only downside was the paint and poor response from dealer/subaru, had chips coming off by the time it was one year old it needed to be repainted. Dealer refused to cover it under warranty, when we disagreed they said the subaru rep looked at it and blamed it on bird droppings (I parked in a covered lot all day long at work)! We ended up paying for an entire paint job on the whole car less than a year after buying it (bought it new, had less than 10k miles when we had to have it repainted). Other than that, love the car."
"I bought this car from a dealship with 80k miles. It has been 95k so far and its running great. Regular repairs and maintence and the car is superb. My only problem is that i wish i had a little bit more power. i would not mind a 35hp increase, but hey thats why there is a WRX out there. This car is really reliable and definetly a great first car to have, also AWD is great when turning at over 40 mph. :D"
