    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!

    2003 Subaru Baja

    Better quality than my Jeep

    Pros: 4 doors plus pickup bed

    Cons: rear view -- blocked by rear headrests

    This car has had no major problems (except for replacing the rear differential - covered under warranty) since I bought it. The tires are still like new and I just replaced the brakes at 71,000 miles. No other problems - great value.

    2010 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport

    I adore my new Subaru

    Pros: The way it clings to the road when it drives! It is SO fun to drive!

    Cons: Gas mileage could be better.

    I recently purchased a new Subaru Outback Sport, trading in an old truck that was really having issues. This car has a smooth ride and is zippy and fun to drive. It turns corners on a dime and for a small car has lots of room on the interior. The only thing I don't really like about it is the gas mileage. It really doesn't get the best mileage for a small car, but I guess that is the trade-off for the AWD, which I know I'll be glad to have come winter with its ice and snow. I looked at lots of cars and drove quite a few. This little Subaru was the only one in it size class that felt solid and sturdy.
