Frankly, it is a superior iteration of Subaru's automotive eminence. Safe, dependable, stylish, it provides ample room, tremendous safety features--and is stunningly sure footed. In our mountain winters, two things move in snow and ice: Subarus and the Snow Plow. The Subarus lead the plow down the mountain, in variably.

2007 Subaru OutbackE - Wilmington, NC07/11/2014
I have had lots of trouble with this car. For one thing, I was not aware the ALL Subarus have a tire issue. If ONE of your tires goes bad (worn on one side, hole in it, etc) you have to replace all FOUR due to the Symmetrical AWD. Also this AWD burns more gas and wears your tires out more quickly than a 2 wheel drive car. I recently spent $4000 on a new transmission and timing belt at mileage 90,000. I have had electrical issues also.
