"I put 231,000 miles on this car in ten years and never had a major problem. It was reliable, got great gas mileage, and had room in the back for my stuff. Just a few months ago a guy offered me cash for her and I turned him down. I had planned to drive her another two or three years at least, or to 300,000 miles. Now she's been totaled in a wreck! No injuries though, she kept us safe. This was an awesome car and I can't imagine owning another."
"Bought this car new over 12 years ago, and it has been incredibly reliable and versatile of use. Great capacity for loading in large items (gas barbeques, ladders, 11 foot market umbrellas etc.), comfortable passenger car, wonderful visibility from the driver's point of view and handles well in all road situations and weathers."
"This has been the most reliable car I've ever owned. Traded in a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee for this car and I'm so glad I did. I've had to put money in it from time to time but it's never been anything out of the ordinary; just standard things like a brakes, clutch, etc. I know people who have had problems with later models and I asked my mechanic about it (Superior Import Repair on Burnside) and he said the engine for my year and model was a particularly sturdy one."
Pros: "It's responsive and fun to drive and RELIABLE."
Cons: "When this one wears out, i will get another Suby."

"I have owned many vehicles over the years.
This is my first Subaru and I LOVE IT!
Absolutely reliable. Handles like a sports car
with nice firm steering and body action.
I honestly get 29MPG with it's 4-cylinder
Boxer opposed cylinder engine AND the
Semetrical SUBARU (AWD) ALL WHEEL DRIVE.
This is the BEST vehicle I have ever
owned. Ever. I am now 68 years old.
Yes, I am retired USCG."
