An amazing pice of engineering, can't stop grinning :-)
I wish the 2000 RX Liberty I traded for this one was as good, then, they wouldn't have anywhere to improve. A faultless car, why waste money on a 2wd BMW 3 series for the wank value of a badge and 20k price difference for a far lesser car???
The first service at 1200 km was free.
I drove the car about 1600 km to another state and back for work starting with about 700 klm on the clock, she ran like a dream, hi speed stability at 220 km/h was like a rock, handling in heavy downpour of rain caused only a slight drop in speed, still cornered in the wet like it was dry. This is the third Subaru I have owned. I'm blown away with the improvements and performance gains made by the Subaru engineers. Awesome gearbox (auto). Magic engine, car handles like it now weighs half the weight of the previous model, I owned a 2000 Liberty RX before this one. I simply cannot rave enough about it. It's great to have headlights that work in the dark now, my only whine about the 2000 RX.
I'm now seriously waiting for the 3.0iR six cylinder model to be made available in Australia. Japan, Europe and US all get them, but not us???
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
