    2005 Subaru Outback

    second to none

    Pros: all wheel drive

    Cons: lack of rear armrest

    I've owned four Subarus since 1969 and never had to have one repaired. The one I owned longest was a 1990 Legasy sedan . I owned it for over 15 years, until I bought a new 2005,although it was still like new when I sold it. No other automobile made today compares to Subaru for quality and reliability.

    2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STi

    Best sport sedan.

    Pros: Turbocharger

    Cons: The looks.

    Best sports sedan for it's price, no comparison. The regular WRX can not be beat. Any weather. Great reliability. Not just like every other car you see. Horizontally opposed engines are just brilliant. All wheel drive is a definite bonus. The addition of the 2.5 liter engine in '06 was another great improvement.

    2009 Subaru Legacy

    Nice but small

    Pros: All wheel drive

    Cons: No seat pockets.Poor glove box. No storage space

    Engine is noisy. Like the all-wheel-drive ,but is not very fuel efficient. Also, could use a little more power and a five or six speed transmission.

    2010 Subaru Legacy - 2.5i Limited (CVT)

    Pros: bluetooth phone

    Cons: road noise

    Advice: Check prices at all subaru dealers. Don't use Atlantic Subaru Bourne dealership- shady

    My Subaru legacy limited Engine is underpowered. Road and engine noise is too loud.

    2009 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Hatchback

    Pros: Toss up: auto-dimming mirror with compass or remote start

    Cons: Basic sound system is a joke. Needs sport exhaust--can barely hear revs for precise down-shifting.

    Advice: Be prepared to drive like a saint or pay the piper. The hood scoop might as well be a flag.

    Caution: when you're driving a WRX, remember to breathe. Love, love, love. Owning a WRX leads to what I call the WRX sneer--the destorting effect of an ear-splitting grin at high accelleration. It's an AWD 265hp turbo wagon that corners like a go-cart--the perfect car for a New England woman in the music business. Great cargo space/rear seating arrangement that hauls five grownups with decent head and leg room or about a dozen djembes, or three cellos, or ten guitar cases or, with 60/40 split seats, any combination of all these. I happily do a lot of the driving :) for about any event...anywhere. A high speed hairpin corner is easy--just downshift and hit the gas--with AWD, that turbo digs in like a cutting pony. More power would just be silly--so the STI is for gearheads if you ask me. My friend who drives a Porsche felt the need to defend his car after driving my WRX. 'Nuf said. He did win a single point from me about transmissions. The WRX 5-speed is geared well, but it feels a bit primitive and slow to me. Hope it breaks in a bit smoother. An overdrive or some kind of 'Highway' gear would be quiet enough for any kind of music even with a performance exhaust, and very green too. Since Subaru is synonymous with New England, the auto climate should have a 'Parka' setting. Picky, picky. This is a nimble, exciting sports car. It has a remarkable safety record, legendary road worthiness, is actually affordable, comfortable, and offers solid resale value because it's a Subaru.
