Good car at low miles

Served me well for 5 years but after 130,000 miles it started burning oil and after 140,000 I needed all sorts of things fixed. Wheel bearing, air conditioning, airflow sensor and more. The tires also wear out/ lose air faster than in most other cars. And the airbags would turn off for the passenger and sometimes the driver.

2.0

Buyer Beware

After a certain milage I've had issue after issue, I would never own another Subaru after this car. I've had issues with my hood latch, muffler and exhaust, head gasket and radiator within three months. I don't even have 150,000 miles.

5.0

Great car highly recommended

I have had it almost 2 years and the only problem I have had is somebody scratching my trunk hood and a dent from a crazy driver hit and run which wasn’t covered by my insurance
