Summary:

Great economical AWD car for under $16k

Faults:

Annoying dash rattle since new... rattled all over the place. I took the car in 10-15 times to get it addressed. Eventually they were able to have Mercedes grade foam put in to help with the rattle. Still creaks... only when it's super cold, 35 degrees & below.

General Comments:

I was on the market for my 1st NEW car with a budget. I test drove over a dozen cars and finally settled with this great little Subaru. I do a lot of high driving, so gas mileage surprisingly is between 36-42 MPG (!) with 25-30 city. It does great in snow and has never let me down... After all, I talked this brand new car out the door for $15,490.00 so I can't complain.

I have upgraded the car with a nice sounding stereo, rims and tires, and tinted the windows... and I get compliments from almost everyone!... "That's a Subaru?... wow, it looks so sleek..."

This car isn't seriously quick and doesn't handles like it's on rails, but it does a great job from point A - Z. Next car will most definitely be a WRX!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
