"I go to Lake Tahoe, to the desert, off road, in snow, over creeks, and down wash board roads. San Diego to Sedona Arizona. I have had my Subaru since she was new and now is 11 years old, and she runs with great power. I did pay a pretty price for her luxuries since she is an LL Bean edition. Leather interior still looks phenomenol. I take her camping and to the ocean. I have slept in her when I forgot my tent, I am 5 ft 3 inches and it works for me. I will say that my boyfriend is amazed that I can put down the seats and he can haul timber and packages from Home Depot."

"This car is my 4th Subaru. I love the dependability and performance of Subaru...period. This car handles well in all kinds of weather and road conditions. I would recommend it to anyone. Currently I am searching for my next new Subaru. Time to pass this one on to someone looking for a value. Yes, I have put a lot of miles on this car, but my first Subaru (1984) had nearly 400,000 miles on it before I could part with it in 2003. I didn't want to let it go even then. Every Subaru since, has met with the same dependable performance as my first. I have matured somewhat since my first Subaru, I am not nearly as hard on them as I was with that first one. That, in a nutshell, is why I love Subaru...They are not the deposable car that I see so often. They are reliable. The only negative are the cv joints. Not a big deal, but seems that they need to be replaced more often than most cars. May be that I just push my Subaru to its limits. And they have met with my demands."

"Bought the car used and have had it for 7 years. I love it. Drives great in the snow, perfect size for transporting dogs, my trike, plants, furniture. Handles well- drives like a car, not a truck."

"Mechanical wise this car is in great shape have all receipts just put in new clutch and had alot of other work done. The interior is leather but needs to be cleaned up. Along with the rest of the interior. A great driving safe car. Just needs some clean up on the inside and a new grill which is easy to find. I just don't have the time."

"I really like the Subaru, except that at 76,000 miles I had to put a new engine in it - was never told why; then, recently, after only an additional 58,500 miles on new engine, I was told there are metal shavings in the oil pan and that the engine needs to be replaced again. I bought the Subaru new and have maintained it according to the maintenance schedule in the book. I don't understand why the engine would fail 2 times. I am going to either sell it or just drive it until it dies. I would never buy another Subaru."
