Fast, responsive, azmazing handling in a surprisingly small package
-Alternator went at 140,000 miles, $300 to replace.
-Clutch went at 145,000- my own fault (taught my friend to drive stick on it) Still, impressive that a stock clutch would last 145,000 miles. Way to go Subaru!
Car handles like a dream, I will never own another non-AWD, and for that matter, another non-Subaru vehicle in my life.
Ridiculous power from a 4-cylinder. It says 150 hp on the dyno, but it feels like 200... very impressed with acceleration through all ranges except between 85-100 mph (a little sluggish there)
Superior winter driving- I prefer to drive my Subaru in the winter rather than my 4-wheel drive truck. AWD is hands-down the best for any situation, unless you like being out of control.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
