Summary:

Great performance, great bargain

Faults:

Clutch was just replaced, but unfortunately dismounted from installment or was misused when I purchased the car. After 60000 km it was replaced.

Some minor rust spots were repaired.

Generally it was in good condition, when bought and sold, but it had a few weak spots that needed attention.

Over the years it got several minor problems.

General Comments:

The car was awesome. Great performance and a true wolf in a sheep's dress. I loved feeding it a bit.

Nice leather seats and A/C made for a comfortable interior.

Enough luggage capacity for a whole family.

It was even a relatively cheap car. Comparable performance comes at a price far higher.

Only Subaru offers this level of performance, low running cost and reliability.

A bit soft chassis and suspension.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
