    2005 Subaru Forester

    Bullit Proof Ride!!!

    Pros: Dependability

    Cons: Gas mileage

    This car has been 100% reliable for the first 100k (except for a battery at 90k). It has been everything that I could have expected.

    2010 Subaru Forester

    Almost Great

    Pros: Handling and AWD

    Cons: Under powered by 25/30 hp.

    This car is wonderful to drive and handles like a BMW at times. Problem without Turbo auto is a bit under powered even with the manual 5 speed. Still for a short wheel base it feels great, stops on a dime and is very balanced. Low center of gravity and AW keeps auto glued to ground. Best car for the money in its class. First Subaru but won't be the last.

    2006 Subaru Baja

    In the woods & the garden

    Pros: Open Bed

    Cons: Subaru discontinuing the model

    I love my Baja. Their is room for friends inside while hauling all of our camping gear in the bed. having the bed allows me to pick up mulch and other garden items without making a mess inside of a carpeted area like I would if I had a standard SUV. The all wheel drive and strong engine give me that extra pep for driving in the mountains. The only thing that I am unhappy about is Subaru deciding to discontinue this model.

    2010 Subaru Impreza WRX STi

    Buyer's remorse

    Pros: The handling

    Cons: everything but the handling

    Don't get me wrong, this car is a lot of fun to drive. However, considering the price, the quality is very poor. There are a lot of squeaks, the paint scratches extremely easily, I've had problems with the fuel door. The overall interior materials are cheap. The metal is cheap. The car feels cheap.

    2010 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport

    Our First Subaru - Best Car Yet

    Pros: Riding in the Car, Well desinged suspension!

    Cons: Radio controls, the actual system sound is super

    So much thought went into this vehicle, from design, dashboard detail, ride and comfort, great drive control, excellent power, but VERY low on noise, beautiful interior, spacious, it just goes on and on, the sound systems, once you read the directions for use, is actually spectacular, could use a little more user friendliness in that realm, and the fact that this little car is so solidly built, super 18' wheels...We'll my wife and I would love to meet the designers and thank them personally for this car! Couldn't have designed one better for us. Perfect!
