Have you ever owned a Subaru? Would you? Why not?

I am thinking about getting one as my next car. I like that they have AWD standard in every car they make and they have also earned the "Top Safety Pick" award for every model, two of their cars go beyond that and get "Safety Pick +".

Most cars either do not have AWD available or it is a option. In the Ford Fusion for example if you get one with AWD the price will start around $34,000. You can get a nicely equipped Legacy for around $30,000, with prices starting in the low $20's for base models.

What do you think about Subaru?

Never owned one. I hear they are durable, though not especially fuel efficient. For the money there are better deals to be had.

I own a 2001 Outback Impreza and love it. The AWD is great, but it impacts the fuel economy some compared to other vehicles of the same size. The only other drawback is that in AWD cars, if you have a tire issue that can't be repaired, you typically have to replace all 4 tires.

I had a 1992 Loyale wagon. Loved it! That thing was a billy goat. It would go anywhere. The narrow tires would cut right through the snow down to the pavement, and the 4x4 (not AWD) was excellent. I hated to let that one go...
