They are a great little car
The module and pickup coil was bad; it would run 20 minutes and die. This is my third Subaru, and this will happen around this mileage on most all cars.
If you have a good mechanic that likes these cars, he will do a better job than a one that would rather work on another type of auto.
They are easy to work on with more room under hood than most cars, and will run forever with proper care. I love them.
The car is not fast, so you have to adjust your driving habits before you pull out into traffic.
They are very well built, and will outlast the payments. The average person will not even check the oil or the air in the tires, so you can't blame the car if it doesn't give you good service.
You need to keep up with it, and when you notice that it's not running smooth or the fuel mileage went down, or it's running hotter than it should, have it checked out. Just because it still gets you back and forth, it will cost you more if you wait till it quits all at once.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
