5 speed trans. is a pain , until you figure out how to use the shifter for up hill driving. It's a very good vehicle so far,dose everything I need it to do. It's great in snow !!

A lemon that couldn't be fixed

Bought new, my 2005 Subaru was towed four times in 20,000 miles. Each time the check engine light went on during highway driving. Car stalled on steep hills, paint peeled from door handles, dome light worked occasionally, upholstery on back seat pulling apart despite the fact that it was seldom used. Bizzare headlights did not shine above 4 feet above the pavement. It took two seperate trips to the dealer to get the driver side seatbelt repaired. Dealer was unable (or unwilling) to determine the cause of the check engine light activation and the intermittent stalling problems. Door handle was repainted only to have the paint peel away again. Dealer treated me like I was a 56 year old fool, accusing me of not knowing how to drive a manual transmission. Company zone office said the car was "performing as it was designed" and refused to offer any solutions other than accepting my car as a trade-in on another Subaru. No thank you. I will never, never buy another Subaru and recommend to all my friends and family to also boycott Subaru. Fixing the engine problem instead of simply resetting the computer module would have been a nice start, but they chose to take the easy, cheap way out and hope I and my car would simply go away. One last note: don't bother with the lifetime oil change. Even if you make an appointment well in advance, plan to spend 1-2 hours waiting for your oil to be changed.
