Pros: "This is a good quality car that's fun to drive."

Cons: "The hard shifting manual transmission."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 3

"I've had this car for 6+ years, 65k miles without any major mechanical issues. It performs well and delivers approx. 23 city, 26 highway mpg. The biggest issue with this car is the manual transmission, it was hard shifting from the time I got it and has gotten somewhat worse over time. I have taken it in for this issue twice and was told that nothing could be done. Actually the service rep suggested that I could double clutch when I shifted. And their head mechanic finally did offer the statement that Subaru didn't have the most "refined" manual transmissions. He did say that they are better now. Since this has been the worst shifting car that I have ever owned, with the exception of a Ford Pinto, I will not have another Subaru with a manual transmission."

"There is truly no comparison. What other car can I put two car seats in the back, two bikes on the roof, two dogs in the hatch and still have so much fun driving... Nothing. It's amazing how many people want to race at red lights and then I roll down the window and they see my kiddos in the back seat. Best purchase ever."

"I really enjoyed this small 4-door hatchback. Very good in Denver's snow and cold weather. Needed a little more clearance for snow and ice to be rated great. Car was comfortable, and apportioned OK. A little noisy on the highway. Transmission versatility was handy in the snow. Disappointed in the stero system. My Legacy has a much better stero system. Room for 4 adults, but with 4 adults really cut into get up and go. Overall, enjoyed this vehicle. First Subaru I bought and would recommend them for cold weather climate with snow and icy roads."
