Great car

Great mileage, reliable, safe( withstood getting totaled with no injury to me or my grand dog), comfy, just the right size! Only gripe: blind spot.

Absolutely adored this car until... 136,000

My family has been buying Subaru's my whole life. We've always driven them "into the ground" if you will. I commute a total of 64 miles a day and travel a lot through out the year. I love hiking and mountain biking and this Subaru was the perfect fit for my life style. Even my Great Pyrenees loves it! She has her own little hammock in the back where she can snooze and catch the breeze. At 26,000 miles, my center differential went bad and Subaru gave me a brand new CVT Transmission. I've kept up with all my maintenance and take pride in keeping my car in great condition. At 136,500 miles, I started noticing a shudder in my transmission. Mainly in first and second gear. Then the next day, it was significantly worse. I experience the shudder in third and fourth gear, but not as bad. I contacted Subaru of America since they extended the warranty on the CVT by 100,000 due to customer complaints. I'm obviously over that limit and they weren't too willing to help out. The best option they had was to give me a trade-in with credits towards a new Subaru. I'm hesitant to take this offer and haven't made a decision yet, but I wanted to share my story. I really, really love this car. It brings me to tears to think I might sell it. I hope this helps someone else <3

I WISH I KEPT LOOKING!

My 2003 honda accord is better. The engine is loud when you accelerate it always sounds like its having trouble trying to speed up. When driving on the highway the cabin sounds very loud. You can't hear anyone talking in the front if you are in the back its so loud. Pay a little extra and get something better maybe even a legacy.
