"Every Subaru I have owned has been a great car. They seem to last forever if you take care of them. I sold my last one with a measly 175,000 miles (which as far as I'm concerned means it is just broken in). My current legacy wagon has around 200,000 miles with no issues and only has needed regular service and maintenance, and my first one had 276,000 and still ran strong when I sold it (although it no longer passed inspection. If it had I wouldn't have sold it). These wagons aren't the fastest, most powerful, or even the "coolest", but they are everything you need a car to be. They do their job and they do it well. If you drive a Subaru, it's only a matter of time until you fall in love with it. The older it gets, and the longer you have it, the more you love it, and the more the thought of any other car in the garage seems ludicrous. We take it on camping trips, to home depot and treat it like a truck, pile it with kids and coolers and strollers and cargo, we even tow our small boat with it. It seems like part of the family. Heck, she even has a name! Overall, I'd say it's a great value, extremely practical, and there's not much on the market that can compare. I'd buy one again, and I'm sure I will (in about 200,000 more miles)"
