This car is a good car to take on road trips. This would be good for new drivers.

I got the car as a used car. It had a few of its own problems need a new hood and front bumper. This car has been easy to work on. It runs good and is a good size good for grocery shopping when you buy a lot at once. Very to drive and stir. It also has all wheel drive which is great for people that drive in the snow or around black ice. I would recommend this car to people.

2001 Subaru Legacy Wagon AWD

I've had my Subaru since April 2018. Unfortunately the head gaskets went the day I bought it, but the dealer had no problems replacing the gaskets. The muffler/exhaust rusted out, which is normal for vehicles - especially with it being 17 years old. This is my second Subaru because they're reliable, gas saver (even with AWD), and excellent in the snow.

My Subaru pro's and con's.

Gets okay gas mileage, the only thing we hate about this car is the seats are super uncomfortable the longer the trip the worse your back and hips hurt. My seat ends up pinching my nerves to the point of numbness or sharp stabbing pains. I have adjusted the seat in all sorts of ways so far and just can't get comfortable.
