Always change your oil on time or you will destroy the motor/turbo.

It is reliable and starts everyday. The wax has awesome all wheel drive, and the turbocharged engine makes it a blast to drive. The car also looks awesome!

- Dylan B

Subaru is an all wheel drive 4 door hatchback which is very roomy

I drive a 2012 Subaru wrx sti hatchback and love it. it has a high safety crash test rating and rides smooth on the highway and still looks sporty

- matt m

That after so many years of driving it's still reliable to the core

Subaru has the most reliable engine and steering. It's good for road trips across the states and has no problem in the mountains ..
