"I bought this car used, with 100,000 miles on it, one previous owner, no accidents. I've got 156,000 miles on it, after 2 years, and it's just now starting to show the wear and tear of so many miles. The winter package is a must have in my next Subaru. Yes, I'm shopping around for a newer one, with much less miles, though I probably won't buy a brand new one. I'll let someone else pay the primary depreciation, then I'll buy it with 30,000 miles or so and drive it for another 100,000 and just pay for tires, brakes, and oil changes, if I'm as lucky as I am with my next Subaru, as I am with this one. So far, it's been really great and reliable. I did put snow tires on it, which makes driving in winter a lot of fun. The summer tires don't do well in snow, but they give me 30mpg on long highway trips. Snow tires only bring 27mpg. I drive a little over the speed limit. When I use the Turnpike and go with 80 mph traffic, the engine revs around 4k and the gas economy drops 3mpg. Super reliable, economical gas mileage, fun to drive. Wish I could afford a new one, but it's a little out of my range, and used ones can be had for cash and don't need collision, which to me is a ripoff. Storage room is excellent. Access is excellent. Got a bit of road noise, but not too bad, just turn up the stereo. I don't like that the radio faceplate is unique, so I can't just replace the sound system. Trying to find a new face plate is not easy, by the way. I hope you like the stereo, cuz it's not easy to replace. The A/C is just a bit weak, I think, even after recharging. It may be the visibility, which may also allow more sunlight in the car, heating it up, making it more difficult to cool off with the A/C. It's reasonable, but in summer it runs all the time, on high. It doesn't seem to effect the gas mileage, which surprised me. I love the heated seats."

Best and safest car I've ever owned!

"I felt as though I was driving an armoured car. It is roomy, comfortable for long road trips. Easy to load/unload from the factory cargo rack. The seafoam green (champagne colored) is great and always appears clean."
