It can beat a v6 mustang in a race

I've had the vehicle for over a year now and it hasn't given me any major problems. Quite reliable and if you're into a sporty fun car I would recommend it. It's a manual 5 speed, all wheel drive that's great in the snow. Good gas mileage I love it

Subaru is known for its safety ratings and their vehicles definitely make you feel safe.

I love the safety standards of the vehicle. I love the customer service that subaru provides. I like the appearance of the vehicle. Also, I like the reliability of the vehicle

- Sarah V

The most important thing others should know is that the engine has a flaw about oil that may cause engine failure.

I like that it is fun to drive. It handles very well in the winter. I dislike the amount of maintenance required to keep the car at capacity.
