A nice buggy overall
Pros: Automatic cliimate control
Cons: Non-collapsible side mirrorsI'm quite happy with my 2.5i Limited. I knew going in that it's not a rocket sled, but power is adequate, as is the CVT. Comfort, IMHO, is very good and quality seems to be up to Subaru's usual high standard. Driven sanely, it returns good mileage No regrets, would buy it again.
The best vehicle Ive had..
Cons: seatsgreat awd vehicle out there.. I feel safe and its reliable for family or a single person..
Excellent all-around vehicle
Pros: Open feeling in a smaller vehicle with great moon roof.
Cons: Could have more spaceCould use more space for my personal usages but overall it meets a variety of needs well. Good winter car that allows for fun in the summer. I've been averaging 26-28 mpg over the life of the vehicle. Seats could have some extra padding.
Pros: all wheel drive
Cons: How low it sits to the groundNever had a problem with the car since I bout it!
'03 subaru outback review
Pros: 6 disc cd player
Cons: fuel consumption could be betterWell made, comfortable and safe car with a minimum of problems over the years
Fun fast and it actually fits my family
Pros: Speed and comfortable drivers seat.
Cons: Mpg.I needed a daily driver to get work, take the kids out, and sometimes go to the mountains with a bike. I didn't want to lose my soul so I got an sti. This car is fun to drive for sure. I can fit my wife and two kids comfortably. My 2 year old loves the speed. I haven't driven in the snow yet bit I am hoping that with blizzaks it will handle it just fine.
Blown Engine @ 5,000 Miles
Pros: Handling & brakes are superb
Cons: Engine blew 2 pistons at 5k , required a complete rebuild not covered by warranty because I changed the muffler.Love the car , love the handling - BUT - its not really a $35K car - its a $45K car after you have replaced the engine. Anyone thinking of buying an Sti needs to search Google before and key in 'ringland failure'. A massive disapointment overall after many years of supporting Suabru.
